Poland Rejects EU Demand for Zero CO2 Emissions


Poland has rejected the climate change demands from Brussels. Piotr Naimski, Poland’s chief strategic energy adviser, said energy security is a higher priority than sticking to EU emission goals. In an act of defiance, he said it was “not possible and not feasible” for Warsaw to meet the EU target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Poland has no nuclear power plants. In the 1980s, the Zarnowiec Nuclear Power Plant was under construction but it was abandoned in September 1990. Without nuclear power, Poland would become vulnerable if it relied upon imported energy.
