Respekt: For the first time in history, we will try to restore what we have already destroyed in nature

On new European legislation passed by the European Parliament in a close vote to protect climate and species diversity. Protection is no longer enough. Europe's nature is facing a renewal. What do critics of the nature recovery plan fear? And how could it help protect the climate? Our senior researcher Kateřina Davidová comments on this in a new Respekt podcast.

"From my point of view, the reason why there was such a controversy during the vote could also be because the agricultural lobby is very strong and very well organised in the European Union, perhaps even better than the car lobby, as we have seen with other legislative proposals. (...) The fact that this is one of the last pieces of the jigsaw that makes up the European Green Deal, which has not yet been agreed, may also be a factor."
