Greenpeace: Urgent EU action needed

CRITICAL CLIMATE-SAVING LAW

The EU has up until now been the world leader in taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and Germany has played a leading role on climate change for more than a decade. But now Germany's Minister for Economics threatens to undermine a progressive EU law, critical to tackling climate change.

This law, the Emissions Trading Directive, aims to help all EU countries start reducing CO2 emissions from next January. It's a major part of how countries will meet their Kyoto Protocol targets.

Germany has set itself the ambitious target of reducing greenhouse gases by 21% by the year 2012 compared to the 1990 levels.

But if the government doesn't get its act together, it will fail to meet these targets, and will not meet any future reduction targets either. It's time for Germany to get its act together.

STOP ILLEGAL TIMBER

Greenpeace has taken action to stop a shipment of Indonesian rainforest plywood - from a mill known to be receiving illegal timber - being imported into the UK and Belgium. Politicians in Europe are currently discussing what action can be taken to tackle the illegal timber trade. Please help them to make up their minds by contacting the EU Commissioner responsible for the EU's work on this subject.

Please contact Poul Nielson, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, demanding that the EU:

- Develops strong European legislation that will make it a crime to import and market illegally sourced timber and forest products.

- Takes steps to crack down on the illegal timber trade by strengthening existing national and European legislation on money laundering and public procurement.

- Provide adequate funds to tackle illegal logging and the relating trade.

Send a message to Poul Nielson here:
