THE Spanish government have announced a 15% decrease in the country’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Spain’s claim came as the World Meteorological Organisation said ‘unprecedented’ CO2 levels are leading the planet down an ‘irreversible path’.

Isabel Garcia, Minister of Agriculture, Food, and Environment, explained that the Boost Plan for Environment (PIMA Aire) renovated 35,000 cars and 2,800 motorcycles as part of Spain’s ‘international commitments on reducing emissions’.

Spain is now in compliance with the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol – the international campaign to improve air quality.
