The Second Vice President of the Government of Spain and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Diaz, has urged the European Commission to “reconsider” the proposal to classify as green energy investment in certain nuclear energy or natural gas projects.
‘Europe still has the opportunity to reconsider this decision to avoid stay away from scientific evidence and social demand ”, underlines the Second Vice President of the Government of Spain and Minister of Labor and Social Economy in a tweet published yesterday January 1.
In this sense, Díaz appeals to “the political responsibility of pursuing a transformative and ambitious Green Deal for European citizens.”
The outrage in the ranks of Unidos Podemos was also joined by the Minister of Consumption, Alberto Garzón, who considers that the draft proposal of the European Commission reveals an attitude “more dangerous than pure climate denialism: talking a lot about ecological transition and not act at all according to scientific evidence. ‘
The Commission’s initiative is a first step towards the proposal that it promised to present before the end of the year but that in the end it postponed after verifying at the last summit of EU leaders that it is an issue that creates tensions between capitals.
Member States and the Platform on Sustainable Finance They have until January 12 to respond to the proposal. The Commission will then prepare a delegated law that will be sent to the countries and the European Parliament for debate.
