He is making the UK a climate villain’: MEPs denounce Sunak’s net zero retreat

European politicians from across the spectrum have criticised the UK prime minister’s plan to roll back key climate policies. Rishi Sunak announced on Wednesday that he would delay a ban on new combustion engine cars from 2030 to 2035, weaken a plan to stop installing new gas boilers by 2035 and no longer require homeowners and landlords to meet energy efficiency targets. Several MEPs said the move would harm the climate and the economy. It is a “suicidal decision”, said Javi López, a Spanish MEP with the centre-left group, who led a recent push in the European parliament to cut air pollution. “Today’s efforts are tomorrow’s competitiveness.”

    It is such a shame to see Rishi Sunak going back to create worse example like a bad developer or unethical accountant. I hope with enough feedback he will come to realize he needs to provide better environment for his family as well. ..

            Delaying climate policies like the ban on combustion engine cars and weakening plans to stop new gas boilers is a concerning step backward. Climate action is crucial for both the environment and the economy. 🌍🌿 #ClimateAction #NetZero
