LMP Calls on Govt to Boost Climate Protection Efforts
MTI-Hungary Today 2019.05.06.
Green opposition LMP on Monday submitted a draft resolution to parliament, calling on the government to declare curbing climate change and adapting to its effects a matter of strategic importance.
LMP lawmaker Erzsébet Schmuck told a press conference that the draft resolution calls on the Hungarian government to stand up for defining and achieving climate protection targets in the European Union. It also proposes a Hungarian climate protection law to be enacted by October 30 and a green program by the end of November, outlining Hungary’s full decarbonization until 2050, Schmuck said.
Global climate is changing drastically, with human emissions of carbon dioxide playing a significant role, she said. The changes will be “dramatic” within a generation, but effects such as droughts and climate-related migration are already clearly visible, she said.
