The EU must be convinced that its climate package, which could lead to an increase in fuel and heating bills for households, is "fair and solidarity" or else "resistance" will be "massive". warned today the vice-president of the European Commission Frans Timmermans.
"The Commission must prove that its plan leads to a fair and solidary transition. "If we do not convince, the resistance will be massive," he told reporters.
