5 toughest questions faced by Miguel Arias Cañete (Climate Action & Energy) – Hearings of Juncker Commission

Miguel Arias Cañete  Commissioner-designate for Climate Action and Energy (nominated by Spain) – had to answer a number of difficult questions during his hearing by the European Parliaments Committees on Industry, Research & Energy (ITRE) and Environment, Public Health & Food Safety (ENVI) on 1 October. Cañete’s answers to these 5 toughest questions reveal best how he managed to handle the parliamentary grilling:

– Don’t you have a conflict of interest with your brother-in-law involved in the oil industry? Can we trust you?
– Do you support starting the Market Stability Reserve for the EU ETS before 2020?
– What do you propose to do about fracking, which you’ve authorised in your own country?
– Will you commit to revisit the 2030 package after UN climate talks in Paris, to raise its ambition?
– What will you prioritise to ensure a secure supply of energy for Europe?
