You can get drink delivered in some parts of Dublin... so you don't have to eat on an empty stomach.

The Green Party want a 7% reduction, I believe.  Well, this is what a 7-8% drop looks like...

https://business.financialpost.com/pmn/business-pmn/renewables-are-the-only-winners-in-historic-decline-in-energy-demand

The International Energy Agency predicts there'll be an 8% drop in CO2 emissions this year due almost the entire world being in lockdown over the coronavirus.

The Green Party is pushing for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 7% each year until 2030 as a key component to enter coalition negotiations with Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.

Quote
A key Green Party government talks demand to cut emissions by 7% could cost €40 billion and force decisions on the size of the national herd, agricultural practices and the use of nuclear power, according to new research.

The research -  'Is the new Green Party emissions reduction target feasible and what would it mean for the energy system?' - and undertaken by University College Cork's MaREI Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine, states that the party's 7% emissions reduction aspirations would require "transformative changes" impacting every aspect of peoples' lives.

The independent research group's previous work underpins Government and EU energy and climate policies.

Forget getting a gun, get yurself a horse!




(P.S. The 1st link talks about CO2 while the RTE article talks about 'greenhouse emissions' so the two might not correlate extactly.)

Woulda thought switching the world off for a few months would've resulted in more than an 8% reduction over the year. Have they factored in the inevitable phasing of switching back on and a new "normal" being the end result?

I guess 2 months of a shutdown = 16% of a year.  Add back in China and Africa as the naughty children and maybe that's where they get 8% from?

It's a disappointing number, to be frank.

GREEN Party deputy leader Catherine Martin has sharply criticised “shocking” and “disturbing” comments by the Tánaiste and said there is “unrest” in her party over entering government talks.

Ms Martin has cast fresh doubt over whether the Greens will enter coalition talks with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael following comments by Tánaiste Simon Coveney that Fine Gael would not sign up to the 7pc carbon emissions reduction target if it “decimates rural Ireland”.

In fairness, she does have a point if what she says is true...

Ms Martin described it as a “quite shocking comment” from Mr Coveney as Fine Gael had signed up to this target in government under the Paris Climate Agreement and the EU’s Green Deal plan.

You know the old saying; "Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me."

At some point, political parties will have to make good on their promises?
