Why Portugal is the Green country of the month July.

July was on the track to be the hottest month on earth as deadly heat waves and wildfires across southern Europe have made painfully clear how little time remains to avert climate disaster. Portugal's efforts were however recognized as it has brought forward some crucial decarbonization targets as follows; 1)It has raised its renewable goals.The country is powering ahead on certain energy fronts for instance,solar and wind produced over 50% of the country's electricity for the first time earlier this year. 2)The country is helping citizens to decarbonise.One of the easiest ways it has considered to help people cut their carbon emissions is reducing the cost of public transport.Portugal will soon launch a new National Rail Pass enabling people to take as many regional train journeys as they like for just €49 a month.
