Floods, promises and postponements: ten years without a climate plan

It was easy to predict: things proceed towards their blurring, as a great writer said, and even the emotion for what happened in Ischia is waning.

Yet the Plan has been talked about for ten years.

It was 2012, the year of the flood in Maremma, one of the 1503 extreme meteorological phenomena recorded since 2010 according to Legambiente (1503, a huge figure).

Fast forward a few years, until 2016, in between there are a flood in Genoa, one in Piedmont, one in Benevento: the government of Matteo Renzi, minister Galletti: the Plan is ready, and full of data and advice to be taken on the fly, and in 2017 – Gentiloni government, flood in Livorno – it is shared with the other ministries and regions. To be approved?

Everything stopped. In February 2021 Mario Draghi arrives and Minister Cingolani starts a new preliminary consultation.

It’s over? No, in May a technical subcommittee suggests a series of additions to the Plan, which in effect after all this time, is a bit outdated. And it starts again. Ten years have passed, of announcements, delays, jokes, essentially jokes. Now the government says it will be approved within the year. He solemnly promises it. We have one month to make up for ten years.
