TDs heckle Eamon Ryan as he brings Climate Bill to the Dáil

Opposition parties have signalled they will seek multiple amendments to the Climate Bill as the landmark legislation had its first Dáil debate.

Climate Action Minister Eamon Ryan presented the bill as symbolising a “time of action and hope” that would chart the way to a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and trigger “social transformation”.

The bill creates a legal obligation on current and future governments to work to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 with an interim target of a 51pc reduction by 2030.
