02.12.2009 | Reports & Briefs

The European Union likes to present its climate policies as models of aggressive action. However, at the centre there is a gaping hole: the -20% below 1990 by 2020 emissions cut agreed in 2008 will require virtually no effort in Europe to achieve. Making a move to a deeper target conditional upon aggressive action in other countries, as the policy is now, is therefore misplaced. It is Europe that needs to move, as its reductions are less aggressive than those in other countries, and deeper cuts would in fact yield a financial benefit.
