Tory MEPs To Vote Against EU Climate Plan
Posted by Tory Aardvark
June 23rd 2011 was a bad day for EU Climate Religion when Poland blocked the economic suicide pact know as EU Energy Roadmap 2050 and it became know that there were still some real Tories around, albeit in the European Parliament, who were not going to vote in favour of David Cameron, Chris Huhne and the EU’s planned increase in CO2 emissions cuts.
In a last ditch attempt to keep the 30% cuts insanity going the EU decided to postpone the vote in the hope that Cameron could convince his MEPs to vote for the 30% cut
Cameron has failed to convince the 26 Tory MEPs to vote yes and their No vote could well kill the whole emissions farce dead.
Britain’s Conservative MEPs are poised to deliver an embarrassing rejection of the Government’s global warming stance today in a European Parliament vote on toughening climate targets.
Many if not most of the 26 Brussels Tories are likely to vote against the proposal that the European Union should tighten its climate policy from a proposed 20 per cent cut in CO2 emissions by 2020, to a 30 per cent cut.
The shift from 20 to 30 per cent is the centrepiece of the Government’s current climate agenda – it is in the Coalition document, and the British ministers have been campaigning for it with other EU countries – and a rejection of it by the Tory MEPs will be seen as a personal snub to David Cameron. Furthermore, it is quite possible that their votes could make the difference between the proposal being won or lost.
If it is lost it will be another blow to Europe’s attempts to boost its position ahead of the next global climate conference which takes place in Durban, South Africa, in December. Two weeks ago Poland single-handedly blocked the EU’s first attempt at agreeing on the shift from 20 to 30 per cent, saying such a move would be too damaging to Polish industry.
This week Poland took over the six-month rotating presidency of Europe, which gives it substantial power to decide the EU business agenda for the rest of the year – meaning that the climate change issue is likely to be considerably downplayed.
The EU produces just 10% of global emissions of a harmless inert gas called CO2, any reduction in CO2 emissions by the EU will soon be swallowed up by other countries not hamstrung by Climate Religion.
