Sandrine Rousseau on ecology, the carbon tax and her project
Measures of Sandrine Rousseau policy in the fields of ecology and carbon tax. Also, her political project presented during the primary of the ecologists of September 2021 for the French presidential election of 2022.
We must stop the artificialization of soils, put in place a law with local urbanization plans, prevent the establishment of ecommerce hangars, rehabilitate places that have already been concreted.
We must fight against the higher mortality of birds due to wind turbines, make the installation of wind turbines compatible with the fauna by looking, for example, at the migratory path of birds. We must recognize the crime of ecocide.
According to the WHO, 3 out of 4 children are exposed to air pollution in France, and therefore breathe toxic air. Canceling the technical control of the two wheels means not making a choice of society.
We must accept that we are living among the living and therefore give a social and legal status to animals because today there is none.
We must reflect on the consequences of our consumption. An ecological awareness in society also involves seeing the hidden face of what we are sold, with marketing, millions, which in fact destroy the planet, humans. We have to get out of this model. We must tell the breeders that we cannot move towards an even greater intensification, towards an even greater industrialization. All the European competition, all the competition with the countries of North and South America pushes us to move towards greater industrialization. All the free trade agreements that we make with the rest of the world relate to the fact that we allow animals raised in intensive farming to circulate freely. This is really the thing that is going to have to be acted on very quickly.
Carbon tax :
The price per tonne of carbon must be reduced to 200-250 euros, against 54 euros today. This would drop the price of gasoline to 2 euros. Carbon in the world is the most almost free thing, yet it is what puts us the most at risk. If we want to change our model and our economic structure, we have to go through this. There is also a need for carbon taxation of companies.
The current system is summed up by the triptych: we take, we use, we throw away. We take nature, use it and throw it away. We take the bodies of people and especially the most vulnerable, we use them and we throw them away. We do the same on women's bodies. It is the entire organization of society, of the economy that we must take back in hand. These years of liberalism that we have known over the past thirty years are leading us today into an inextricable, urgent and dangerous situation. Ecology is the only way that allows us to protect ourselves, and to ensure that our future is more serene, that we can watch the children, the years to come without fear that the situation will get worse. way that no longer becomes controllable. We are at the limit of this world and we must act in a radical way, but also in a civic and collective way to change this world. We must move towards decrease, GDP is not the right indicator, we need indicators such as well-being, health, life expectancy, social cohesion.
