Coal comfort as Poland takes over EU presidency

Environmentalists say that Poland bent the law to get free greenhouse gas emissions permits for 13 unbuilt coal plants, the day before it took over the EU presidency on 1 July. The EU's emissions trading scheme was designed to deter high carbon investments. But free emissions allowances granted to coal plants under its auspices could actually provide an incentive to pollute. An appeal to the Environment Ministry in Warsaw is now "imminent," according to the green NGO Client Earth, and further moves could follow. "We're looking at legal action in Poland," Karla Hill, Client Earth's director of programmes, told EurActiv.
