Spains new government declared a national climate emergency on Tuesday, taking a formal first step toward enacting ambitious measures to fight climate change.
The declaration approved by the Cabinet says the left-of-center Socialist government will send to parliament within 100 days its proposed climate legislation. The targets coincide with those of the European Union, including a reduction of net carbon emissions to zero by 2050.
Spains coalition government wants up to 95% of the Mediterranean countrys electricity to come from renewable sources by 2040. The plan also foresees eliminating pollution by buses and trucks and making farming carbon neutral.
Details of the plan are to be made public when the proposed legislation is sent to parliament for approval.
More than two dozen countries and scores of local and regional authorities have declared a climate emergency in recent years.
Scientists say the decade that just ended was by far the hottest ever measured on Earth, capped off by the second-warmest year on record.

Has their plan passed muster with Greta??? She’s there at the Davos conference, saying she will be watching. I wonder if this plan will meet with her approval.
Higher taxes, more regulation, wealth redistribution, scarcity, loss of individual freedoms — standard Marxist Regressive game plan, using the “climate change” hoax as the wedge issue. Another Venezuela in the making.

There must be a yet unknown microorganism or other agent at work.
We seem to be in a global pandemic of insanity like a sci-fi movie.
Spain? Hmmm... what a coincidence. The earliest known Declaration of Climate emergency also occurred in Spain.
Over 30,000 years ago the Neanderthals declared one and stopped making campfires that create CO2 pollution. Ive tried to find a Neanderthal to ask how that worked out but cant find one.
Net zero carbon?
If you pump 50 gillion barrels, and burn 50 gillion barrels, isn’t that net zero?
All the migrants they’re letting in will help build levees, won’t they?
