Yesterday I spoke in the Dáil on the Climate Emergency Measures Bill.
This Bill, similar to our own Keep it in the Ground Bill, is a step forward towards a greener future.
The Government needs to realise that the world is changing and that it cannot stop that change.
Switching to a zero-carbon economy will not only help us meet our obligations in accorance with the Paris Climate Agreement but it would also be good for our economy as clean, green technologies and industries continue their exponential growth.
I hope that this Bill will be enacted so we can become one of the leaders in green energy moving forward. We should and can be good at this.
