Europeans’ livelihoods in greater peril after ETS adoption

In reaction to the adoption of the revised EU Emissions Trading System by a majority in the European Parliament, ECR Shadow Rapporteur Alexandr Vondra explained, why his Group voted against:

“The overambitious climate package will do more harm to our businesses and vulnerable people than it will do good to the climate.”

“The result cannot be called a fair one if European businesses and citizens are required to set new records in their shouldering of greater and greater burdens for the benefit of all humanity.”

“We can now only hope that the Council will put the draft back on its feet and tone it down.”
