Thousands call on French lawmakers to do more in climate change fight

CA, 29 Mar 2021
Thousands of protesters in Paris on Sunday called on French politicians to be more ambitious in the fight against climate change.

French lawmakers are due to start examining a bill on climate change Monday, but critics say it will not be enough to limit the country's carbon emissions and reach a goal set by the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit the rise of global temperatures.

The bill, called "climate and resilience,” aims to reduce carbon emissions by 40 per cent by 2030.

The draft law is the result of the work by 150 randomly selected French citizens, which made propositions to fight global warming. But critics say it has excluded some of the suggestions, despite a promise by French President Emmanuel Macron to implement them "without any filters."
