  • Declaring a climate emergency with legally binding goals is a unique opportunity to rise to the occasion, the Nationalist Party said on Friday.
  • With regards to criticism from the Government in Parliament, Azzopardi pointed out that in the 2015 law being referenced there was no climate emergency mentioned anywhere in the text, and that nowhere were there clear goals that the country must reach till 2030 or 2050.
  • PN MP Karl Gouder concluded that the chance to have a Parliamentary Committee that would deal specifically with the issue at hand was last, and warned that if next week’s vote does not pass then who know when the next one will be held.
