On November 24, Alexis Tsipras addressed climate change as well as reducing inequality and said this should be the two main goals that should set simulataneously.
Addressing climate change and reducing inequality are two goals that need to be set simultaneously and jointly. The achievement of one requires the achievement of the other
The new green social contract in the Mediterranean area should, in my view, be based on this double goal.
Everyone are all being called to radically change the way we live. But as we must ask the lower and middle classes to endorse needed changes more compatible with the future of the planet, at the same time we must offer them safety, protection and a strong social state with needs public and social good investments that need to be funded.
The solution is to tax the excessive profits of big business and high income people.
Only with inclusive policies within states and solidarity between states can the necessary consensus be built to save the planet.
But what solidarity are we talking about when the energy crisis in the EU is treated as if it were only a problem of efficiency and not a high cost? A cap so high that it would drive the price of gas upwards is being discussed.
It is not possible that all risk, surcharges, stock market gambling, foreclosure of risk be transferred to the end consumer while large and robust companies take no risk and have no risk.
Progressive forces, globally, must provide sustainable and inclusive solutions for the future of the planet and humanity.
