Description

CURB +++++++ The EU leaders reached a landmark deal to cut greenhouse emissions by 40% by 2030, compared with 1990 levels. The decision was agreed after heated discussions, as some members had argued that their varied interests should be protected. The two-day EU summit focused on an ambitious package of climate change but also tackle the Ebola crisis, economic stagnation and the crisis in Ukraine. EU officials earlier said they wanted the EU to have an "ambitious position" in the run up to the UN climate change conference in Paris in December 2015. The bloc also aims to boost the use of renewable energy to 27% in the total energy mix.
