European politicians across party lines call for 100% target for renewable energy #green

Brussels, 21 March 2014: A group of some 50 European policy makers across party lines has called upon the European Commission to drastically increase the targets for renewable energy in the context of this week's decision to set climate and energy targets for 2030. Current and former Members of Parliament and politicians from 15 member states today concluded in Brussels that "self-interested actions and a lack of cooperation put Europe's resilience, its society, economy and climate at risk. Therefore, only ambitious targets for renewable energy can sustain Europe's economy and ultimately lead to an energy sector powered entirely by renewable energy." The gathering was initiated by the World Future Council and supported by the Climate Service Center and EUFORES, a parliamentary group based in Brussels.
