While attention for the need for Climate Action has never been more “in” at the moment, we are struggling to find the means to tackle the bureaucratic system that protects the status quo. Our guest in the tortoise shack is Researcher, Campaigner and works for environmental & climate justice in UCD, Clodagh Daly. Clodagh was part of the recent unsuccessful Climate Action Case taken to the High Court about our Governments failures to meet their Carbon Emission Reduction Targets. But as Clodagh explains, the news from that day wasn’t all bad and that we must not lose hope that future actions will not be successful. We also talk about a Green New Deal and how any Climate Action that is a burden on people already stretched to the pin of their collars is not the Just Transition she is campaigning for.
