Climate Change “No Longer a Matter of Opinion”: Italy PM

Climate Change “No Longer  a Matter of Opinion”: Italy PM

ROME - The dangers of climate change are no longer just a matter of opinion, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni told an environmentalist conference in Rome on Saturday.
The day-long event titled “Pact for Climate -- Together for Italy” was organized by Insieme (Together), a new coalition between the Green Party, the Italian Socialist Party, and supporters of former center-left prime minister Romano Prodi.
“The risks are no longer a matter of opinion, they are present risks,” Italian news agency ANSA quoted Gentiloni as telling participants, including a number of current and former government ministers, MPs, and representatives from leading environmentalist NGOs.
“The issue of climate change must be considered as one of the central issues of our economic, strategic, and international policies,” Gentiloni said.
“The fact that the United States have withdrawn from the Cop21 framework does not diminish, but rather multiplies the responsibilities of other countries,” the Italian leader said. (Xinhua)
