It's time for us to take climate change seriously
'Ireland is determined to play its part." Taoiseach Enda Kenny set out the Government's position at the Convention on Climate Change in Paris last night.Ireland is committed to the EU's collective target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40pc by 2030.
What is really needed, though, is a serious commitment from everybody at the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework to be more ambitious.
The United Nations is saying that currently the commitments on the table are not enough to reduce global warming.
