In Paris, on 12 December 2015, it was agreed by 195 nations to attempt to cut greenhouse gas emissions to a level that will limit the global average temperature to a rise “well below” 2C (3.6F) compared to pre industrial levels-a level of warming deemed to be the point when dangerous change could threaten life on Earth.
Even though Ireland is a small country, we as a nation can be a leader on climate change and inspire hope for future generations.
As a follow up to the highly attended Climate Change Crunch Time meeting I have organised a public meeting that will discuss the outcomes of the COP21 summit.
Guest Speakers on the night will be Dr. Cara Augustenborg, Environmental Scientist and Chair of Friends of the Earth Ireland & Paul Melia, Environment Editor with the Irish Independent.
The meeting will be held on Thursday January 14th in ‘The Goat’ Goatstown at 7.30pm. All Welcome.
