THE GREENS 7% DEMAND IS RIDICULOUS, IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND WILL DESTROY THE COUNTRY! THEY NEED TO EXPLAIN THEMSELVES! OK, settle in for a thread on the Green 'demand', the costs, the benefits, and the difference between price and value.
First of all, let's address the framing of this debate. The Greens didn't come up with the 7% figure - it's science. The UNEP have said that if we want to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, the Paris goals, the global average reductions need to be 7.6% per year.
Now, arguably, as Ireland is a high emitter on a per capita basis, and is a wealthy developed country, we need to do more, but anyway. Ireland has signed and ratified the Paris Agreement - the target is as close to 1.5 degrees warming as possible - this is what's required.
