PM says putting 38% of Slovenia under Natura 2000 a mistake

Putting 38% of Slovenian territory under Natura 2000 protection was “a shot in the knee”, PM Janez Janša told the press after an EU summit that had climate goals as one of the items on the agenda.

He said that the European average for the area, where it is forbidden to produce energy from natural and sustainable sources, is 18%. “We’ll try to be ecologically conscious and yet not be complete idiots like those who drew these maps at that time not realising what it is actually all about,” he said. As for the call by some member states for an agreement on the goal to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030, Janša said Slovenia would support goals that will actually be implemented and would not pay triple the price like some neighbouring countries might.
