Action needed following stark IPCC report on climate change

Tuesday 09 October 2018

The Green Party in Northern Ireland has said that the IPCC Report on climate change must prompt action in Northern Ireland.

Green Party leader Steven Agnew MLA said

“The IPCC Report has been written in extremely stark terms – we are facing into complete climate meltdown with governments around the world doing nothing to prevent it.

“Government in Northern Ireland hasn’t burdened even as much as its fair share of effort on climate change.

“Previous Executives have failed to deliver a Climate Act, setting us apart from the devolved administrations of Scotland and Wales.

“This report sets out that doing nothing is not an option – the Secretary of State must do her job and move to implement a Climate Act for Northern Ireland.

“People can make positive changes in their own lives like eating less meat and travelling in a more active way – but it’s the role of Government to drive the change.”
