It's not just about "animals", we depend on nature for our survival.

A point lost on the Trump administration which you have spent the last two years of your life championing on here.

We are genuinely fucking things up, for ourselves, for our children, for every living thing. And still, most of us sneer at the idea of giving first preference in the upcoming elections to candidates who put climate change at the tops of their agendas.

Ireland declares climate emergency: 'Things will deteriorate rapidly unless we move very swiftly'

Quote:
Ireland has become the second country in the world to declare a climate emergency.

The decision was made on Thursday evening after an amendment to a parliamentary climate action report was agreed by both the Government and the opposition parties.

It comes as EU leaders put action on climate change at the top of the agenda in the next five years.

Climate Action Minister Richard Bruton said climate change has been "rightly" described as the greatest challenge facing humanity.

"We're reaching a tipping point in respect of climate deterioration," he said.

"Things will deteriorate very rapidly unless we move very swiftly and the window of opportunity to do that is fast closing."

He added that urgency had been injected into the debate by the protests by school students calling for action from parliaments around the world.

"It is justified that a level of urgency be injected into this debate," he said.

"When we speak of an emergency people often think of something unexpected that can be resolved through a sustained effort for a relatively short time. This is not an emergency of that sort. This is a much more challenging emergency in that we must change our behaviour in profound ways and do so on a sustained basis."

Chairwoman of the Oireachtas Climate Change committee Hildegarde Naughton welcomed the cross-party support in recognising the need for urgency and declaring a climate and biodiversity emergency.

She urged the Government to fast track legislative changes.

In a tweet she wrote: "Good news at the end of the Dail motion today supporting the report of the Climate Action Committee, which I chair. We now have cross party support in declaring a climate and biodiversity emergency. Action now needed."

Fianna Fail's climate action spokesman Timmy Dooley, who moved the amendment, said: "Unless we cut emissions significantly by 2030, the consequences will be dire.

"Biodiversity loss is an existential threat that is fundamentally linked to the climate crisis and Ireland's response is similarly lacking," he added.

He maintained that if the Government implemented the recommendations made in the committee's report it would allow the country to get back on track and "bring an end to our laggardly response to climate change".

Sinn Fein's Brian Stanley also called for a climate emergency to be declared.

He said: "Climate action should not be viewed as a burden. We should see it as an opportunity to create a stronger, more sustainable economy for everyone. To do that, however, we have no option but to radically transform our society and economy."

Green Party deputy leader Catherine Martin said young people realised that they will be the ones most affected by the "short-sightedness" of Government today.

"It is also essential that in declaring a climate emergency we commit to concrete, real and identifiable action rather than just uniting around vague concepts," she told the Dail.

"There is little value in all declaring a climate emergency without committing to doing anything about it."

Climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg, 16, who has led a movement of young people across Europe calling on leaders to take action, welcomed the declaration.

She tweeted: "Great news from Ireland!! Who is next?

"And remember: #ClimateEmergency means leaving fossil fuels in the ground."

Earlier this month the UK became the first country in the world to declare a climate emergency.

The opposition SF and PBP welcome this move but will vehemently oppose carbon taxes on populist grounds.

Also, it's a meaningless gesture unless it's backed by action.

Evolution requires the survival of the fittest.

Those who reject evolutionary theories are crackpots.

Adapt or die.

I think it was Brid Smith who was on Radio 1 this morning doing just this.

Wants a ban on fossil fuel mining and no taxes on those earning the average industrial wage. She thinks the oil companies should pay to save the world while at the same time banning them from digging holes.

Parochial ignorance on a scale that would make the Healy-Raes gag.

We're at the top of the food chain and living the dream.

You think the polar bears would give a fuck about us if it was the other way round?

Fuck them.

And fuck those hippy researchers looking for billions of euro in grant funding so that they can sit around in their sandals pontificating about how collectively fucked we all are.

The outright ban on burning coal coming in might be seen as more than a token gesture perhaps rox?

Lol

Another eco warrior


It’s not all about animals eh? So there is no link between global warming and farming? Nah?


Btw, I never said a thing about Trump’s environmental policies. If you look at the thread and pay attention you’ll notice that my main goal is to show the likes of Triggs and that buffoon Doc that they are wrong about Russian collusion, and they are....


If you think that any of those politicians ( on all sides )care about the planet you are deluded.

They care about as much as you do: ie not at all.

Come of the stage.

There are leftist dopes in here that don’t even care for their own bodies, chugging down alcohol and pills... ffs.

It’s faux concern and you are as full of shit.


It’s not just about animals? So animals aren’t part of the whole system?


Jesus Christ
