(en) France, Alternative Libertair #221 - Government PS-EELV: The great illusion ecological (fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 22 Nov 2012 09:19:45 +0200

The government does not stop to chain the effects of ads and rear steps on energy policy. Renunciations on nuclear power and shale gas to the paucity of decisions, the government confirms accompanying logic of the capitalist system. ---- François Hollande and Cécile Duflot are worthy heirs of the deceased Plural Left. The faithful can still boast that the government held a presidential campaign promise, namely government organize a conference with five roundtables on ecology. However, the eco-socialist manager duo continues to maneuver between the effects of contradictory announcements expected reassure both the industrial lobby voters environmentalists. The show can go on and anyway, the Mass was written from the electoral agreement PS - EELV last year: in exchange for the abandonment of election promises of the Green candidate, EELV won a caucus and ministerial morocco . However she dared say: "we will not give the nuclear and Notre-Dame-des-Landes."

And here we are: the construction of the airport Nantes is confirmed and the abandonment of nuclear power is not at the rendezvous. Certainly, the closure of the Fessenheim is scheduled for late 2016.

But no work was highly recommended by the Agency for Nuclear Safety (ASN) announced in 2013 are: either they are not included in the program and eco-socialist government takes a huge industrial risk, or is about to spend wasted for only three years of operation.

An anti-ecological energy mix

Of course, a beautiful radio deafening silence is observed on the future of the industry: maintain energy mix comprising maintaining nuclear energy involves either extend the life of existing plants with increased risk induced or to build new ones. The same logic of the energy mix continued on oil. Few scoops tax and cancellation of seven exploratory licenses for shale gas are adopted but thermal power plants are kept. In 2011, 64 applications for exploratory licenses were counted in France, the previous government had already canceled three ... At 18 months of local by-elections, it is primarily a decision agissaitt circumstance. But what about the other 54? In addition, we recall the sacking of the former Socialist Minister of Ecology who had dared to oppose a drilling project in Guyana now operational since July 2012.

A sustainable development policy

Another effect of the announcement, the government promises great steps in the thermal renovation of buildings by vibrating the social rope. Indeed, these measures should be financed by doubling the ceiling on savings, a portion of the capital gain to be repaid bank in favor of the government's energy policy. But if the Booklet on Sustainable Development (LDD) is well doubled from 1 October, the booklet A is increased by only 25%. Last example of this hypocritical policy tacking: organic agriculture. The government promises to promote its development but valid European Directive ad-hoc, setting new standards allows the agribusiness lobby to divert the label. Pathetic. The article does not suffice to describe exhaustively all the effects of announcement and against government decisions. Power eco-socialist, as its founding, hypocritical and schizophrenic, and there appears to be no consistency ecological and social. The government does not simply accompany the capitalist system in its transformation into sustainable development, in order to perpetuate.
