  • Guterres: "We still are in time for COP25 to be very relevant"

    Madrid, Dec 11 (EFE) .- The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, said Tuesday that "we still are in time to make this COP25 very relevant," but that to achieve this, regulation of the carbon markets is essential - Article 6 of the Paris Agreement - and that the most polluting countries must commit to a greater reduction of their emissions.TRANSLATION"The tradition on the COPs is that decisions are made at the end. The first part is a technical part where progress is very limited, but I think we still are in time to make this COP very relevant, and to make it very relevant we have to achieve the guidelines of implementation of Article Six of the Paris Agreement, which is essential for the establishment of carbon markets, and at the same time it would be very important, knowing that it is in 2020, at the Glasgow COP, that countries raise their national contributions, their commitments to ensure a much greater ambition than what we have so far, knowing that the decisive moment will be next year. I think it will be very important that at COP25 here in Madrid, that the states that have a greater influence on climate change, those that generate higher emissions, indicate that they are willing to commit more (to reduce their emissions) "

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
