Will the war in Ukraine accelerate the European climate approach? Annette and Mathieu receive Diederik Samsom, head of the cabinet of European Commissioner Timmermans.
They talk to him about the plans that the European Commission announced this week to become independent from Russian gas as the EU by 2027. Less energy consumption, more sustainable energy sources. But how realistic are these plans? And will the proposed boycott of Russian oil still get off the ground? A conversation about the relationship between geopolitics and climate ambitions.
And Annette and Mathieu speak with Koen Verhelst, correspondent Scandinavia and Baltic States for Euronews and the FD, among others, about the NATO membership application of Sweden and Finland. Why did it take so long anyway?
