Opposition LMP: Fidesz 'Denies Climate Change'
Hungary’s ruling Fidesz “turns a blind eye” to climate change, the greatest challenge of the 21st century, Gábor Vágó, top candidate of the opposition LMP party in the upcoming European parliamentary election, told a press conference.

Fidesz “constantly speaks about migrants, failing to mention that those people had no drinking water where they come from,” Vágó said.

According to Fidesz, people would not be aware of climate change were it not for “the media brainwashing them”, Vágó said.

“The natural environment is being destroyed by large companies controlling policies in Hungary and in a number of other countries,” Vágó added.
