  • Fears for climate with new government

    Environmental groups in Spain fear climate and environmental protection could be downgraded following last month’s change of Spanish government.

    The right-wing Popular Party (PP) headed by Mariano Rajoy has been sceptical about whether climate change is caused by greenhouse gases and had very few climate commitments in its election programme. T&E member Ecologistas en Acción fears the new government will favour dirty energy sources and will submit to pressure from big power companies and cut subsidies for renewable energy.
