LMP CALLS ON GOVT TO PRESENT CLIMATE OBJECTIVES

 

Green opposition LMP called on the government to publish its climate objectives before the United Nations’ September climate summit in New York. Erzsébet Schmuck, the party’s deputy group leader, said global warming has already caused substantial economic damage in Hungary. Farm production has fallen and houses have been wrecked due to extreme weather, she said. Schmuck said the ecosystem in Hungary should be made more resilient and the country should commit to a steeper reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The government should refrain from vetoing EU climate goals and map out Hungary’s path to carbon neutrality, she said. Expanding the use of sustainable energy resources and building insulation should also be focal points, she said. Should the government fail to produce its objectives, LMP will initiate an extraordinary parliamentary session to debate the subject, she said.
