Irish Mammies fixing climate change? As if they hadn’t ENOUGH to be doing.

First, let me be clear. Climate change and environmental repair can only really be fixed by the actions of the 100 companies who do 70% of the damage. 

Real change can’t happen here until our governments for once in their special interest group-fearful lives get off their arses and do concrete things and start supporting public transport and cycling, encouraging reuse and less use, stop subsidising peat burning, support the kind of farming that is not ransacking the environment and … well there’s a lot they’re not doing.
