GThe head of the Greek chap­ter of Green­peace, Nikos Char­alam­bides, has writ­ten to Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras ahead of the lat­ter’s talks with Cypriot and Egyp­tian lead­ers aimed at broad­en­ing tri­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion in hy­dro­car­bon ex­plo­ration. Char­alam­bides asked Tsipras to un­der­take ini­tia­tives to pro­tect the Mediter­ranean from ris­ing tem­per­a­tures, drought and a greater risk of for­est fires. “In­de­pen­dence from fos­sil fu­els, re­new­able en­ergy sources, the pro­tec­tion of for­est and ma­rine ecosys­tems and in­fra­struc­ture, smart net­works and en­er­gysav­ing pro­grams are some of the com­mon ac­tions and ini­tia­tives you can un­der­take,” he wrote. Fur­ther ex­plo­ration for hy­dro­car­bon re­serves would be “ex­tremely dan­ger­ous” for both the econ­omy and so­ci­ety, he wrote.
