Government will listen to climate change protestors – Eamon Ryan

Students and young people around the country, and the globe, today protested for climate action and against empty promises on the issue.

In Dublin, protestors said that decision-makers need to step up while there is still a chance to limit global warming.

Minister Eamon Ryan met the protesters outside the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin city centre.

Ryan said the Government is listening to the message from young people.

He said he believes students are seeking even faster action that will be contained in the forthcoming Climate Action Plan, which plans to half greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Ryan said people often underestimate what can be achieved in a decade, saying “we might be able to surprise ourselves” by making more significant cuts.
