Bruno Mayor calls for a "green stimulus"
Going in the same direction, the minister of the Economy Bruno Mayor calls for a "green stimulus" in the face of the crisis of the Covid-19, and suggests that "to accelerate the ecological transition", by warning against the "temptation" of an abandonment of the fight against global warming. In a small book published Tuesday in the collection Leaflets to the crisis at Gallimard, he was in favour of "a fair economy and carbon-in a Europe of sovereign, asserting that the crisis "offers a unique chance to redefine our own economic model, national and european level".
"The abandonment of policies to fight global warming will be one of the main temptations in the coming months", considers the minister of the Economy, citing the arguments that could go in this direction-such as the fall in oil prices or the need to restart the economic machine.

"We need to do exactly the opposite," says Bruno Le Maire. "It behooves us to accelerate the ecological transition to make our economy the first low-carbon economy of the planet."
