What the Carbon Removal amendment means for Irish agriculture
On the latest episode of the Environment Edge podcast, Fine Gael TD for Carlow/Kilkenny John Paul Phelan joins Deirdre Glynn & Cathal Somers to discuss the new Carbon removal amendment to the Climate Action & Low Carbon Development bill.
The amendment was signed into law by Michael D Higgins on July 23rd and now makes Ireland’s green targets legally binding.
Is Ireland ready for carbon trading? Where does the EU stand on carbon leakage? And who will foot the bill if Ireland does not meet its targets?
