French Senate rules out referendum on constitutional changes for climate

Paris: The French Senate on Monday voted to adopt the changed version of the draft article of the constitution on climate change, effectively removing the possibility to hold a referendum on the issue.

During the second reading, the senators voted in favor of the amended draft, which differed from the one adopted earlier by the National Assembly.

“After the third sentence of the first paragraph of Article 1 of the constitution, the following sentence has been included: ‘It (France) acts in the interests of preserving the environment and biological diversity, as well as against climate change, under the conditions provided for in the 2004 Environmental Charter,'” the Senate said in a statement on its website.
