As a major climate change stakeholder, spain is moving further away from agreed climate change targets, although the sunny country could meet its energy needs with renewables in the future
Climate change continues and europe will also suffer significantly from the changing conditions. According to a recent study, the mediterranean and alpine regions will be particularly hard hit by the changes. Spain, a major stakeholder, moves further and further away from climate change targets, according to sustainability study. Instead of being a leader in violating the kyoto protocol, the country could be a role model in the use of renewable energies. Greenpeace calculates that the sunny country could cover its projected energy consumption for 2050 with renewable energies.
"The potential for damage to various european regions in the face of global change will increase in the coming decades, leading to problems in agriculture, forestry, nature conservation, energy and water management, and tourism", says the study published in the journal science (more drought and flooding in europe).
