Ireland’s total greenhouse gas emissions increased by 3.6% to 61.5m tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent from 2015 to 2016.
Ireland is unlikely to meet its 2020 EU greenhouse gas emission targets and has cast doubt over efforts to become a low-carbon economy.
The country’s farmers are being urged to go green and plant forestry to avoid Ireland being slapped with billions of euros in fines for the carbon footprint from our millions of burping cows.
Plans by about 150 countries to curb greenhouse gas emissions will slow climate change this century and keep alive a goal of limiting a rise in temperatures to two degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit), the United Nations said.
