I've serious objections to gas and nuclear as sustainable investments in the EU Taxonomy - environmental concerns, lack of public participation, and investors own objections. I wrote to the Climate Committee last week and we have asked @Paschald to raise with EU.

You cannot solve climate change all by yourself, but you can make a difference. Each of us can. Climate is changing because of human choices. And that means that every one of us has a role to play in choosing a different future. https://t.co/UHUkh6peGx
