Greenhouse Gas Law Approved

The Knesset approved the initial reading of the greenhouse gases law proposed by MK Ofer Pines-Paz (Labor-Meimad), with 70 MKs signing the proposed bill.

This bill, if enacted, would be the first Israeli legislation which would obligate setting standards and timetables to lower greenhouse gas emissions in Israel, in order to help reduce global warming and ease the global ecological crisis
