CAN Europe's reaction to the State of the European Union speech

In reaction to the State of the European Union speech delivered by the President of the European Commission before the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) today, Wendel Trio Director of Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe said:
 
 
“When it comes to climate change, Mr. Juncker sounds like a broken record. He restates the EU’s commitment to the Paris Agreement, but then fails to give any substance to these words. Our biggest disappointment from this morning is that he failed to acknowledge that standing up for the Paris Agreement means stepping up and committing the EU to higher climate targets."
