mental Pillar welcomes Ireland’s participation in the Climate and Clean Air Coalition. We agree that air pollution and climate change need to be addressed in an integrated manner. Pollutants such as black carbon have a major impact on the climate as well as human health. We have called for the inclusion in the Climate Change Bill or provisions for addressing non-gaseous climate pollutants such as black carbon. We hope that the Minister’s very welcome announcement will be reflected in the provisions of the Climate Change Bill.
This statement was from the Environmental Pillar, 5 June 2013
