Poland will try to overturn the EU’s combustion engine phaseout and other climate laws with an appeal before the bloc’s top court, Climate Minister Anna Moskwa said. 

In spring, the bloc passed a law effectively banning the sale of new cars powered by fossil fuels from 2035, despite opposition from Warsaw. 

Moskwa told Poland’s Radio Zet on Monday that the country would take the matter to the Court of Justice of the European Union. 

“The solution of banning combustion cars in 2035 is harmful to all European economies … I believe that if today we are making a decision for 2035, then today it is necessary to look at its consequences for the following years,” she said. 

“There is no analysis of the social and economic impact, which is scandalous,” Moskwa added. “Anyway, we are going to the Court of Justice in the near future with this decision.”

The legislation, opposed by Warsaw, is part of a larger set of bills designed to cut the EU’s emissions by 55 percent this decade. 

Moskwa suggested that Poland could appeal against other parts of this so-called Fit for 55 package as well: “We are going to the Court of Justice with this and many other Fit For 55 documents.” 

The Ireland government is reportedly looking at plans to cull 200,000 cows to meet climate targets.
