TTIP cast its dark shadow over EU energy policies this week. A leak of negotiating papers for the increasingly unpopular US-EU trade deal showed the EU offering to reverse its own climate policies, according to the Guardian. Where product policies are concerned, it threatens to swap hard-working and enforceable energy standards for weak voluntary ones considered a failure by all, including industry. That would be a profound backward step for consumers, the environment and even the EU’s reputation post-Brexit.
