 ‘Climate Emergency’: Ireland set to ban private cars

24.06.19. There was a time when Ireland joined the EEC that the Government seemed to have brains. Cut corporate taxes, attract big employment business, no unemployment, attract Poles in to ensure all local women got married etc. Everything seemed good, but that type of good allows the population to absorb the worst part of European thinking. Small dairy farmers, a mainstay of the old Irish economy were paid to stop producing and go onto other products. Many such farms being non-viable were torn up for small holdings owned by those that worked for Google, Apple and other tech companies that were attracted by the low tax. Then, of course, came the European politically correct stupidity. Gay marriage, abortions, immigration, multi-gender etc. Not really accepted by 69 per cent of Irish who agreed with the statement that “society is too politically correct” in a recent survey. Still, the idiots are in control and so have declared a ‘Climate Emergency’ and are set to ban private cars while planning mass third world migration. This report from Breitbart’s Virginia Hale:
Drivers will be forced off the roads in Ireland and the population packed into “higher density” cities under a long-awaited climate plan which will ‘revolutionise’ people’s lifestyle and behaviours, according to local media.
“Nudge” policies such as huge tax hikes, as well as bans and red tape outlined in the plan, will pave the way to a “vibrant” Ireland of zero carbon emissions by 2050 according to the government, which last year committed to boost the country’s 4.7 million-strong population by a further million with mass migration.
In order to avert a “climate apocalypse”, the government plans to force people “out of private cars because they are the biggest offenders for emissions”, according to transport minister Shane Ross whose proposals — which include banning fossil fuel vehicles from towns and cities nationwide — are posed to cripple ordinary motorists, local media reports.
Launching the plan in Dublin, leader Leo Varadkar outlined his vision for an Ireland of ‘higher density’ cities consisting of populations whose lifestyles and behaviours have been totally transformed by ‘carrot and stick’ policies outlined in the climate plan.
“Our approach will be to nudge people and businesses to change behaviour and adapt new technologies through incentives, disincentives, regulations and information,” the globalist prime minister said.
“We are going to change how electricity is produced and consumed, how our homes and workplaces are heated; the way we travel; the types of vehicles we purchase; and how food is produced.
“It’s about vibrant, populated city centres, liveable, with excellent amenities and transport as we embrace higher densities.”
The document, which was unveiled on Tuesday, features more than 180 measures to decarbonise the Irish economy including making private car ownership prohibitively expensive — with petrol and diesel car sales banned by 2030, a date by which it says general carbon tax will be increased from €20 a tonne to “at least” €80.
In addition, the plans demand that coal and peat-fired power stations are replaced with wind farms and other “green” energy sources in order to meet the requirement that 70 per cent of electricity will be generated from renewables by 2030.
But plans to dramatically slash carbon emissions by ditching tried and tested energy sources such as coal and nuclear in favour of renewables will necessarily result in a collapse in living standards according to scientists including Cambridge engineering professor Michael Kelly, who has previously explained that such proposals “represent total madness”.
“In energy terms the current generation of renewable energy technologies alone will not enable a civilised modern society to continue,” he asserted in a peer-reviewed paper published in 2016, pointing out that renewables such as solar, wind, and hydro power supply just seven per cent of electricity needs globally while “the rate at which fossil fuels are growing is seven times that at which the low carbon energies are growing”.
The Hughes Medal-decorated physicist cautioned: “The call to decarbonise the global economy by 80% by 2050 can now only be described as glib in my opinion, as the underlying analysis shows it is only possible if we wish to see large parts of the population die from starvation, destitution or violence in the absence of enough low-carbon energy to sustain society.”

    Tells it like it is

    we have always had Irish jokes, I am sure this new set up will give the world a good( lets see what happens) and I am waiting for the American the Australian and the Irish , the tales will be refreshing . The Australian voter, re the election has told our government the Climate and the hoax is a scam and we are not playing the game.

    Idiots in charge always produce idiotic outcomes.
    I wonder how farmers will till their fields? Back to using horses?
    How will ambulances transport their patients to hospital?
    If they are not going to use nuclear energy how are they going to power anything at night…you know, when the sun isn’t shining and those pesky windmills decide that the wind is not strong enough OR too strong to produce power?
    The list is endless.
    Morons! Utter morons!

    This guy, Professor, Ian Plimer is a REAL Climate Scientist.
    Spare 15 minutes to watch this video, it’s well worth it.

    Professor Ian Plimer – Climate Change driven by the Sun

    Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, previously a professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide, and the director of multiple mineral exploration and mining companies.


    He has a great book called ‘How to get expelled on school’ on how to detect science teachers who are not scientists at all but activists in the school.

    I’ve posted this on our ‘Delcons & Deplorables’ part of this site as well for future reference

    Post brexit, Ireland might become the closest European gateway and dumping ground for all the non UK citizens. Ireland should be careful for what it wishes for! Leo Varadka (good Irish name, NOT) as PM, he of the Rainbow Brigade, is sailing into uncharted waters!

      You’re right, Pen. Illegals coming from Africa via Europe will now take the Irish Entrance.

      The Brits would be well advised to install a hard border with Northern Ireland, against the South. It was like that before the EU, but (genuine) Irish Citizens had an open port via Dublin to Liverpool in England, it could be restored.

    Always the glossy brochure from Progressives intent upon generating a catastrophe from a manufactured problem.

    They have not just Venezuela as their model but Ukraine (around 1930) is the desired form.

    The result of this madness will be the creation of a ‘Jobs Jobs Jobs’ party that will be swept to power and do far more environmental damage than would otherwise have occurred.
