Irish Referendum, Lisbon Treaty: Green Party & Environment

SOME EXTRA POINTS FOR GREEN PARTY VOTERS:

Climate Change: Lisbon would commit the EU to “promoting measures at international level” to deal with problems arising from climate change. This is good, but note that it is “at international level”. It would give the EU no new internal powers. Internally EU environmental policies are subordinate to the competition rules of the “free market”(Art.191 TFEU)

EURATOM: Lisbon continues the Euratom Treaty, with its uncritical support for nuclear power, into the indefinite future unchanged.
