Not all states can fulfil ambitious goals

The climate goals must not dogmatically apply for all countries equally, Polish energy expert Filip Elżanowski writes in a commentary for the conservative daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna, pointing to the problems in his own country: "An agreement should be formulated to be flexible and take account of the specific conditions, needs and possibilities of the individual countries, and in particular those of the less developed states. … Poland is completely dependent on energy production based almost entirely on coal. This is why any demands to reduce emissions trigger major controversies here. The EU's expectations for reducing carbon dioxide emissions are already a huge burden for our country."
