Energy: is Europe losing the battle?

Is Europe losing the energy battle? As the US goes full steam ahead with shale gas exploration, European leaders are wondering if their environmental concerns are becoming an obstacle to growth. Also this week, despite the promulgation of the gay marriage bill, the issue continues to send shockwaves across the political spectrum. Especially on the right, where the UMP party, after embracing the opposition to the bill, is now unsure how to deal with it.

On the set:

  • Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI;
  • Philippe Moreau Chevrolet, Columnist, Le Nouvel Observateur and founder of MCBG Conseil.

Prepared by Marc Perelman and Léa Berdugo.
