Climate Change

The Good Information Podcast: Climate change - are our targets even ambitious enough?

It’s the issue of our time, and we almost certainly aren’t doing enough.

HUMANITY IS FIGHTING an uphill battle against climate crisis, thanks to decades of relative inaction in reducing emissions and eliminating greenhouses gasses. 

It was hoped that last year’s COP26 conference would yield an landmark agreement that would see a global change of attitude towards carbon emissions, but instead the measures agreed were more modest.

Our reporter Orla Dwyer was on the ground at COP26, and now writes the Temperature Check newsletter. She joins host Susan Daly for episode 8 of The Good Information Podcast to discuss Ireland and the EU’s targets on reducing emissions, whether we’re meeting those targets, and whether the targets are even ambitious enough in the first place.
