Barcelona Declares Climate Emergency


“Barcelona has decided to take action.” That is how adamant Ada Colau was shown last night during the Barcelona climate emergency declaration. The Catalan capital has joined in this way to other cities in the world that have decided to promote actions to reduce annual tons of CO2. The session already leads forceful actions against pollution such as the Low Emission Zone, the deployment of superblocks throughout the city or, possibly, a ban on short-haul flights such as the air bridge between Barcelona-Madrid.
