COP25 opportunity to show ambition on climate action – Finucane

Sinn Féin Westminster candidate John Finucane has said it is time for urgent action on the climate emergency.

As the UN Climate Change Conference, COP25 begins in Madrid John Finucane said:

“We are facing a climate emergency and the evidence clearly shows we need urgent action to prevent catastrophic consequences for the planet by limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial temperature by the end of this century.

“Coming out of COP25 which is currently taking place, we need to see real ambition and commitment to achieve the urgent action necessary to meet the target of reducing emissions at the rate required to limit global warming.

“This is election is very much a Brexit election but it is also about our future and a priority for us all needs to be tackling the climate crisis. We also need to challenge those who deny, diminish or disregard the climate crisis and those who seek to put the cost of tackling it on those who can afford it least.

“Sinn Féin is committed to achieving a net zero carbon society through a just transition.”
