It's official: with 58,16 votes from the primary ecologists, Eva Joly is now the candidate of Europe Ecology-The Greens (EELV) for the 2012 presidential election. Nicolas Hulot collected 41,34% of the votes. Turnout for this second round, 69,49% of the 32 registered, slightly decreased compared to the first round (896%).
This topic therefore aims to follow his candidacy, his campaign and his results.
Hoping that the 5% will be exceeded, which is quite possible given that the Greens made 18% in Wallonia to the last Europeans in 2009: https://www.econologie.com/europe-ecolog ... -4087.html

PARIS - Eva Joly, candidate for the primary in Europe Ecology-The Greens (EELV), assesses Wednesday in Les Echos at 500.000 the number of jobs that would be created through an ecological conversion of the economy, based on the development of renewable energies.
Ecological conversion is a great job creator, says the former judge. In Germany, 270.000 jobs have already been created by the development of renewable energies and we expect 500.000 in 2020, she explains.
One can think that the number will be comparable in France if one carries out new policies, estimates Mrs. Joly, who calls to compare (this number of jobs) with the 50.000 jobs related to the nuclear sector.
Reinforcing the insulation of buildings would create four times more jobs for the same turnover as the development of the gas sector, which is essentially based on the import of raw materials, continues Ms. Joly.
According to her, the need for financing ecological conversion is estimated by the European Commission at 2,5% of GDP, or around 50 billion euros per year.
In this 50 billion, 15 billion must come from public investment because they will never be profitable, specifies the MEP. To finance them, we will also remove 10 billion anti-ecological tax loopholes, such as reduced VAT on pesticides, such as the exemption from VAT on kerosene used on domestic flights or subsidies for biofuels, warns Joly.
We will also remove the reduced VAT on catering, the tax exemption on overtime, she adds.
This fiscal policy would be supplemented by new standards, suggests Ms. Joly. For example, a transfer of property cannot be made if the insulation work is not carried out, specifies Ms. Joly. It also proposes to oblige insurers to invest in financially profitable green investments thanks to the energy savings achieved.
