Reform or leave fossil fuel treaty – Cuffe

Germany and the Netherlands have faced lawsuits for trying to phase-out coal power. President Macron has announced France will quit the treaty. Ireland is still a member. Green MEP, Ciarán Cuffe, says either we need to get the treaty reformed and quickly, or we need to get out too.
