 France and Europe: Time to end complacency on climate leadership

Yamina SAHEB

As France changes environment minister, we must collectively admit that a very poor job has been done with Europe’s Clean Energy Package, writes Yamina Saheb.

Emmanuel Macron was elected on the promise of “Un Nouveau Monde” in France and within the EU. Many of us hoped that the “Progressive” French president would take the lead to “#makeourplanetgreatagain”.

 Clean Energy for All Europeans Package: Does the Commission Modelling Assign the Right Role to Energy Efficiency and to Renewables?

 

The Clean Energy for all Europeans package is the first opportunity for Europe to align its domestic energy and climate targets with the ratified Paris Climate Agreement and the ratified Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, the Commission’s modelling methodology and results do not reflect well the ratified international agreements and significantly overestimate the cost of energy transition.

 Les politiques d’efficacité énergétique de l’Union Européenne

Alors que la Commission européenne a présenté fin 2016 une série de propositions pour mettre en œuvre l’objectif qu’elle s’est fixé dans le cadre de l’Accord de Paris sur le climat et moderniser l’économie européenne, encore largement dépendante des importations d’énergie, Global Chance et le CLER – Réseau pour la transition énergétique organisent le 27 juin 2017 un atelier/conférence de presse sur le thème crucial des politiques d’efficacité énergétique de l’Union Européenne.

 Réinventer le collectif en devenant un crapaud fou

Le concept de "crapaud fou" est né de l’analyse du voyage que font les crapauds pour se reproduire. Chaque année, de manière grégaire, tous les crapauds se déplacent vers la zone de reproduction. Sauf que, quelques crapauds choisissent d’aller dans une direction opposée, ou trouvent des tunnels que les écologistes creusent pour eux sous les routes. Les crapauds qui suivent les voies conventionnelles se font, souvent, écraser par les automobilistes.

 Crazy Toading

“Crazy toading” means doing things differently or in unexpected way. The concept is based on the analysis of the travel toads make, every year, to reproduce. Each year, in a gregarious manner, all toads move to the breeding area. However, few toads choose to go in an opposite direction, or use the tunnels environmentalists dig for them under the roads. Toads that follow conventional tracks are often crushed by cars. While those who venture in unconventional directions, survive, reach the breeding area and save the species.
