Theresa O’Donohoe attended the recent National Economic Dialogue at Dublin Castle. She comments in her blog: “I was pretty gobsmacked when I realised the actual reason climate change was on the agenda. They’re concerned about how to pay the fines we will have to pay when we don’t meet our targets for greenhouse gas emissions!!!”
She continues “The lack of commitment to actually take climate change head on is staggering. We live in a time devoid of heroes. There are no knights in shining armour leading the charge in government. Nobody has the nerve to lead on climate change. We are led by pawns in the global economy.”
