Urgent action needed to tackle climate emergency – Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said urgent action is needed now to tackle the climate emergency. 

Speaking after a group of more than 11,000 scientists across the world endorsed research declaring we are facing a climate emergency, the party’s spokesperson on climate, energy and sustainability said,

“More than 11,000 scientists from across the globe have endorsed research published in the ‘Bioscience’ journal declaring ‘clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency’.

“The research shows atmospheric Greenhouse Gases (CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide) continue to increase, as does global surface temperature while globally ice has been rapidly disappearing.

“At the same time ocean heat content, ocean acidity, sea levels and extreme weather and associated damage costs have all been trending upward.

 “This adds to the weight of evidence already available, with the scientists stating they hope the research will ‘allow policymakers and the public to understand the magnitude of the crisis, realign priorities and track progress’. 

“We need to see urgent action now to tackle the climate emergency, including to limit our emissions, reduce consumption and promote more sustainable living.

“This action will require coordinated leadership at a global, state and local level.”
