Tuesday 21 May 2019, People Before Profit party has proposed a bill to remove liquefied natural gas (LNG) and other fossil fuel projects from access to fast-track planning approval.
“If we are serious about the climate emergency that was declared, it is simply unacceptable that fossil fuel companies seeking to profit from the destruction of the environment could develop infrastructure to lock us into further dependency on fossil fuels,” Mr Boyd Barrett said.
Good Energies Alliance Ireland supports this initiative. Our “fossil fuel dependence” has to be solved by innovative and breaking solutions. We consider that it is now necessary to direct funding (public and private) towards renewable projects and low carbon economy.
