Ireland's aim is a ban on gas car sales from 2030 on. Which is definitely a start. 2025 would be better though - if Sweden can do it, so can Ireland ;)

A great example of victim blaming: the UN suggesting that the best ways to act on climate change are 'adapting your own lifestyle'. But definitely don't question the responsibilities of politics, industry and fossil fuel industry *ahem *ahem.

UN.ORG/ACTNOW

ActNow is the United Nations’ global call to individual action on climate change. The campaign is a critical part of the UN’s coordinated effort to raise awareness, ambition, and action for climate change and accelerate implementation of the Paris Agreement.
