BRUSSELS - European politicians, CEOs, lawmakers and activists called on Tuesday for green investment to restart growth after the coronavirus pandemic, saying fighting climate change and promoting biodiversity would rebuild stronger economies.
After the crisis, the time will come to rebuild, said a joint letter signed by 180 political decision-makers, business leaders, trade unions, NGOs and think tanks urging a green stimulus for growth.
The transition to a climate-neutral economy, the protection of biodiversity and the transformation of agri-food systems have the potential to rapidly deliver jobs, growth ... and to contribute to building more resilient societies.
Calling fallout from the coronavirus pandemic a shock worse than that of the 2008 economic crisis, the signatories said it must be tackled through investment advancing the European Unions landmark Green Deal policy package, which aims to bring the 27-nation bloc to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Signatories of the letter include ministers from 11 countries from Italy to Luxembourg, 79 EU lawmakers, and CEOs from LOreals Jean-Paul Agon to IKEAs Jesper Brodin and Danones Emmanuel Faber.
Pascal Canfin, a French liberal EU lawmaker who initiated the Tuesday letter, said in a statement: The Covid-19 crisis did not make the climate crisis disappear ... If we relaunch the economy in the wrong direction, we will hit the climate crisis wall.

No it doesn't. NEXT!
Low gear recovery coming right up.
latest: “we’re headed for a CO2 train wreck”
I have a good “green” recovery idea: Move your business and factories out of hell holes with no environmental laws (like China and India). Make more products domestically so you don’t have to use massive cargo ships to move it across the globe (which creates more pollution than all the world’s automobiles combined)
Part 1. No politicians can use jets or anything that can fly. Only horse and buggy allowed.

You knew this was coming, a reset is now upon us
Rush called it!
this has been the plan all along. Pelosi & co already attempted but failed to pivot from SARS CoV2 back to CO2 in the last stimulus bill.
All 180 should be rounded up and dropped off in Antarctica.
