Mr. President of the Republic,
You have initiated an revolutionary method by the Citizen’s Climate Convention aimed toward involving residents in the evolution of the regulation to hold our local weather commitments in a spirit of social justice.
While the residents’ proposals had to be transcribed into regulation, it’s clear that the account just isn’t there. The affect examine accompanying the invoice drawn from the Citizen’s Convention thus acknowledges that the measures proposed is not going to, as they stand, allow the aims of lowering emissions by 40% by 2030 to be met. whereas this goal is in itself inadequate given the new goal of -55% adopted final December at the European stage.
As for the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (CESE) and the National Council for Ecological Transition (CNTE), lately consulted for an opinion on the invoice, their opinions converge. They are each anxious about the inadequacy of the measures taken to obtain our aims of lowering greenhouse gasoline emissions, but additionally about the weak point of the mechanisms to cut back social inequalities. The EESC thus signifies that “the numerous measures of the bill, which are generally relevant, often remain limited, deferred or subject to conditions such that their implementation in the short term is uncertain”.
This invoice largely provides manner to incitement and easy encouragement to change practices the place authorities intervention is required.
However, the anticipated advantages of the measures proposed by the 150 residents are quite a few: fewer folks dwelling in vitality sieves, diminished air air pollution, more healthy meals that’s accessible to all, much less emitting mobility and extra inclusive, extra jobs in key sectors of ecological transition, and so on.
Mr President of the Republic, by thus lowering the ambition of the measures proposed by the Citizen’s Convention on the Climate, you might be depriving our nation of an amazing potential to exit “from” climatic, well being, financial and social crises.
Europe, and you’ve got contributed to it, has chosen to anchor its future on a Green Pact, and to place itself, by way of this new roadmap, as a world chief in vitality transition. But this “Green deal” solely is sensible if the Member States, beginning with France, seize on it to anchor in their very own territories a brand new ecological and social contract, which might make ecological transition the cornerstone of all public insurance policies, whereas guaranteeing that nobody is left on the facet of this transition. The invoice drawn from the Citizen’s Convention on the Climate needs to be totally according to this goal and make it doable to orient our economic system and, extra broadly, our whole society another way.
That is why, as the parliamentary debate begins, our organizations anticipate your authorities and the representatives of our nation to revive the authentic ambition of this invoice. Do not deprive our nation of this new breath which it wants greater than ever.
We ask you, Mr. President of the Republic, to settle for the expression of our highest consideration.
