European Parliament resolution on the climate and environmental emergency


The European Parliament,

 having regard to the statements by the Council and the Commission of 25 November 2019 on the climate and environmental emergency,

 having regard to Rule 132(2) of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas the debate on the real effects of climate change is still ongoing; whereas the contribution of human action to climate change, if this is decisive, has yet to be measured accurately;

1. Notes that putting forward ‘emergencies’ in an ideological manner risks fomenting and institutionalising a regrettable intergenerational clash, rather than favouring a weighted debate;

2. Firmly rejects these attempts to establish a perennial state of exception with no room for alternatives, which have the effect of forcing homologation in the scientific community and the public debate;

3. Is extremely worried about the fideistic approach to the ‘ecological transition’ demonstrated during the hearings by the Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen and many Commissioners-designate, as well as several political groups, which pushes the EU’s political agenda towards unrealistic goals;

4. Is committed to bringing environmental subject-matter back into the context of rational discussion and reconciliation between environmental and social policies, focusing on the most polluting aspects of our production and consumption model;

5. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Commission, the Council and the governments and parliaments of the Member States.
