LMP urges top court to rule on ‘weak’ climate law

Opposition LMP has urged the Constitutional Court to rule on the climate law dating back to an appeal against legislation the party made two years ago in an effort to oblige the government to come up with a stricter law.

The law violates people’s constitutional right to a healthy environment by setting weaker targets than European Union regulations, the green party’s co-leader, Erzsebet Schmuck, told a press conference on Wednesday.

More ambitious targets are needed when it comes to energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, she added.

In the meantime, climate change has speeded up, resulting in droughts, flash floods and heat waves in the country, she said.
