Taoiseach Micheál Martin concerned some EU countries may use the energy crisis to dodge their agreed obligations to deal with climate change

Taoiseach Micheál Martin has warned that the western world’s crisis of energy price and supply cannot become an alibi to shirk climate change obligations, which includes a hike in carbon taxes.

Mr Martin brushed aside Sinn Féin calls to delay carbon tax increases and he argued the Government agreed last year on a nine-year scheme of increases to ensure Ireland would not be blown off track by “political rough periods”.
