Deadly floods in Germany, Belgium show climate change is 'already underway': MEP Philippe Lamberts

Description

Deadly flash floods hit Germany and Belgium this week, leaving dozens dead and hundreds seeking shelter. Leading Green MEP Philippe Lamberts says this shows the urgency of needing to tackle climate change. The head of the Greens Group at the European Parliament tells FRANCE 24 why the European Union's freshly announced package of laws aimed at achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 is "not ambitious enough" on some aspects.
