Spain Declares Climate Emergency & Readies Climate Legislation

HeadlineJan 22, 2020

President Trump called climate activists “prophets of doom” in his keynote speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. On the top of this year’s agenda at Davos is climate change. Teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who is attending Davos, responded to Trump by saying, “In case you hadn’t noticed, [the world] is currently on fire.” Spain’s new leftist coalition government has declared a climate emergency and says it will send ambitious climate legislation to the parliament within 100 days. The legislation, aimed at avoiding the most catastrophic impacts of climate change, will include achieving zero carbon emissions in Spain by 2050.
