"As Éamonn Meehan of Trócaire, a key member of parliament and a huge supporter of the legislation stated:
With a climate-sceptic recently inaugurated into the White House, this move by elected representatives in Ireland will send out a powerful message. The Irish political system is now finally acknowledging what the overwhelming majority of people already know: That to have a fighting chance to combat catastrophic climate change, we must phase out fossil fuels and stop the growth of the industry that is driving this crisis"

Thank-you, Great example Ireland ~♥~
