EC low Carbon Roadmap: supported by MEPs

As the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) was recently informing, the European Parliament (EP) was expected  this week to endorse the Commission's low carbon 'Roadmap' by a large majority. MEPs, who have broadly supported the Commission proposal’s, have adopted a non-binding resolution that calls the EU to harness its energy, transport and agriculture policies to cut CO2 emissions - and improve its Emissions Trading System (ETS) - to make the economy more competitive and dramatically less dependent on fossil fuels by 2050.
Following their previous calls to increase the EU's 20% emissions reduction target for 2020, this resolution warns that the current short-term goal is "not on a cost-efficient pathway" to deeper cuts that must be made in light of climate change.
