At the moment, there are 175 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who we consider to be far-right, or who represent far-right national governments. They are members of three political blocs - the European Conservatives and Reformists, Europe for Freedom and Direct Democracy, and Europe of Nations and Freedom, as well as a number of 'non-attached' MEPs who don't sit with any bloc.

On the April 5th 2019, the sun started to shine again in Spain - though the weather forecast predicted rain. The Spanish Government passed new regulations on self-consumption of renewable energy, that could unleash a renewables bloom.

The regulations, contained in a Royal Decree, bring to an end a four-year hiatus during which the country of the sun installed zero new renewable capacity.

Communities are already experiencing the impacts of man-made climate change, especially in the Global South, but also increasingly here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the crisis and increasing inequality within and between countries.

Europe was largely responsible for causing climate change. Friends of the Earth Europe believes European and other rich industrialised countries must do their fair share to act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to strengthen a movement for climate justice and create a fossil-free Europe.
