European Parliament declared a "climate and environmental emergency"

European Parliament declared a "climate and environmental emergency" Thursday, calling on the European Commission to make sure all legislation and budgets align with the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

The votes come less than one week before countries are set to gather in Madrid for the UN COP25 Climate Change Conference.

Some climate activists applauded the European Parliament's emergency declaration, but also urged the EU to back up words with deeds.

"We can't solve a crisis without treating it as one," Swedish school-strike leader Greta Thunberg tweeted from the Atlantic Ocean, as she sails back from North America to attend COP25. "Let's hope they now take drastic sufficient action."

Waiting for serious and immediate actions from the EU to address climate and environmental emergency, we all can do our part: abolish or at least reduce meat in our plates, walk more and use cars less, stop single use plastics, shop responsibly!
