Started a petition against increased production of firewood

The opposition LMP has filed a petition against government measures to increase the use of firewood, LMP lawmaker Bernadett Bakos said Sunday.

As part of efforts to tackle the energy crisis, the government relaxed restrictions on tree cutting in a decree released Thursday, drawing criticism from opposition parties that the measures undermine climate protection efforts.

At a press conference, Bacos said other European governments were not trying to “cut down forests” to mitigate the energy crisis. She said the measures were short-term mitigation, not a solution. The LMP called for the order to be withdrawn immediately. Bakos said the petition she collected 13,000 signatures on the first day. The party is holding a protest in front of the Ministry of Agriculture on Tuesday, she said.
