France and Germany yesterday joined the growing ranks of European countries opposed to making further unilateral moves on climate change, as the European Commission today plans to make the case for raising the EU’s greenhouse gas reduction goal from -20% to -30% by 2020.

New statistics show that employment in the agricultural sector has fallen by 25% since 2000, with drops ranging from 2.6% fewer jobs in Greece to 55% fewer in Estonia.  The highest job losses were reported in the new member states, where employment fell by an average of 31.3% etween 2000 and 2009. The 'old' member states of the EU-1f fared somewhat better, recording an average decrease in labour input of 16.7%.
