Parliament group to dig up raw material issues

A special group was set up in the European Parliament last month to collect first-hand information on the issues affecting the availability and price of raw materials. Group chair and German MEP Karl-Heinz Florenz told EurActiv about his objectives. Climate change has tended to dominate the global environmental debate for some time now, he said. But he believes that climate change is just the tip of the iceberg, underneath which lies a much bigger problem – raw materials. Whereas the CO2 problem can be solved within 10 to 30 years, "there might not be enough raw materials to build the very highly developed technologies we need to combat climate change, such as electric cars," he warned.
