Climate warning

France is not prepared for the serious impacts of climate change,report warns.

Despite greenhouse gas emissions have declined,experts say efforts are still insufficient to reach 2030 targets.The country's High Council for Climate(HCC) has warned that France's action on greenhouse gas emissions is insufficient and the country is not ready to succumb the consequences. The 200-page report released on Wednesday 28 June reveals that the country was overwhelmed by extreme climate related events in 2022 which required emergency measures on an exceptional scale but extreme years of this kind are becoming increasingly common,it says. According to the report,while a framework for action on climate change is being developed,it has not so far included economic policy capable of triggering the acceleration needed to reach climate targets. "The decline in greenhouse gas emissions in France continues but at a rate that remains insufficient to achieve 2030 objectives," the High Council for Climate says. warns.

          They know of the pending danger that arise due to these emissions yet it doesn't bother them

            Of course they're not and it's definitely by choice and this can be justified by the ongoing France's secretive backing for oil exploration in Africa and elsewhere
