Several months ago when the author started writing this paper, its principal goal was to point out some of the inequities in the European Union’s 2020 Climate Change Package and attempt to explain why this happens. Since then, spearheaded by Hungary, seven of the new EU member states have filed a formal complaint with the European Commission, contesting the 2020 greenhouse gas emission targets set out in that policy proposal. Thus this paper now also serves as an explanation for why these countries might choose to do that.
