Dirty car deals, climate destruction on wheels

Dear friends,

This is really important, can you please take two minutes to sign the cars petition and send this email to your network of friends?

The heads of France and Germany are about to conclude a bilateral deal, which threatens to water down (already weak!) European legislation tackling CO2 emissions from cars. We've made a petition for the European Council's current President, demanding that he and other heads of state stand up for the climate.

Petition to European Council President Janez Janša:

We call on the European Council to take a firm stand against any efforts by Germany and France to undermine the EU process to tackle CO2 emissions from cars. The EU must match its words on climate change with action.

Defend the objective of 120 grams of CO2 per km in 2012 accompanied by strong penalties, and an objective of 80 grams of CO2 per km in 2020.

Don’t let Germany and France get away with their dirty deals.

Sign the petition
