Revision of the guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure - Objection pursuant to Rule 111: Union list of projects of common interest (debate)

  Ignazio Corrao (NI). – Mr President, as one of the 17 MEPs who supported the veto against the 4th PCI list during the last vote in the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), I can unequivocally confirm my intention to vote against this list again.

After the many nice words and promises I heard on a greener future, it would be interesting to see the results of this objection, because we have to be clear: by allowing this 4th list, we would once again be in favour of a future made of fossil fuel. By allowing this list, we would spend billions of euros in investments that could become obsolete in the not-so-distant future. By allowing this list, we would go against the aspirations and dreams of thousands of young people who, in recent years, have taken to the streets in an awe—inspiring call for a better, greener future. We cannot just ignore that. We can’t answer passion with indifference and inaction. We can’t lose credibility. That’s why I confirm my firm support to this objection and against this 4th list of Projects of Common Interest, which is nothing but a betrayal of the new generation, who want fewer words but real change.
