Ireland Not As Green As You Think

Click for photo credit.
An editorial in The Irish Times highlights that Ireland is not meeting projected targets on greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, the issues of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions are not part of the major political dialogue in Ireland.

Sound familiar?

In the U.S., there is little discussion in our current election cycle on how to deal with global climate change. Some candidates even deny that climate change is real or that our current challenges with climate are caused by human activity.

The U.S. and Ireland have long had strong ties. It is unfortunate that one issue that ties us together is the inability to politically address the environmental challenges of greenhouse gas pollution.
