The Hungarian opposition LMP party has called on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán not to veto EU climate targets. Erzsébet Schmuck, the green party’s co-leader, said Orbán should instead back stricter proposals to reduce carbon emissions. The European Council meeting on Thursday ended with no agreement on stricter climate targets, so a decision will be deferred to its next meeting in December, she said. The outcome largely hinges on Orbán’s stance, she added. The European Parliament recently proposed cutting emissions by 60%, she noted, adding that the Council had discussed a 55% threshold. The prevailing view of scientists is that CO2 emissions should be reduced by 65% by 2030, she added.
