A planet needs a carbon plan – national targets will not work

As most agricultural produce is exported, imposing production restrictions in Ireland, such as culling dairy cows, will not reduce emissions. As global demand is unaffected, the shortage is filled by producers from other countries, including some whose unit carbon footprint is worse than figures for Ireland. Because the planet shares a common atmosphere, territorial targets for carbon emissions don’t make scientific sense.

Reducing emissions arbitrarily wherever policy allows and regardless of the cost is economically wasteful, so territorial, country-specific targets don’t make economic sense either.
