Un article de fonds avec de nombreux liens écrit par des activistes du groupe de travail "Justice climatique" de Young Friends of the Earth Europe.
On y découvre la situation climatique au Maroc - qui importe 96% de son énergie et qui fait face à une situation de "green-grabbing" dans le cadre du méga-projet d’énergie solaire à Ouarzazate - et plus généralement la situation climatique en Afrique.
L’article fait également le lien entre les déplacements de population et la responsabilité de l’Union européenne , qui se positionne pourtant comme "leader" dans la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique. A l’heure de la COP22 à Marrakech, YFoEE met en lumière la nécessité d’une action globale et forte pour faire face aux changements climatiques et l’urgence d’ouvrir les frontières aux personnes touchées par l’injustice sociale, climatique ou économique.

Many hail this as a grand victory and a sign that things are on the move. However, as we pointed out in 2015, the point of these conferences should be reaching an adequate agreement, not just an agreement itself — and we know the treaty is nowhere near ambitious enough. National commitments are not binding, and they lead us to at least a 3.4°C warmer world. Last week, the UNEP published a report on such a scenario, and the picture has been described as an “apocalyptic scenario”. The UNEP hopes this report will serve as a wake-up call, however the alarm has been ringing for decades. We are currently at +1°C above pre-industrial levels and are witnessing extreme weather events, rising sea levels and lire la suite
