Ireland commitment to tackle Climate change doesn’t just happen in Ireland. To follow up on what Aaron said Ireland has done plenty to help those in the Developing world tackle climate change. Our overwhelming support to the developing world illustrates the fact that Ireland knows climate change is massively exacerbated in the developing world. No matter how much we make Ireland echo friendly it cannot compete with other countries on the Co2 emission scale, as it is a small country. But we have a duty to set an example for other countries that have a massive impact on climate change. Not only that, but most importantly we must help developing countries who cannot prevent themselves from having a big impact on climate change.

Overpopulation is the main reasons towards deforestation as the land covered by the forests are needed for their resources. The Atlantic forest that I previously mentioned has been cut down to 8% of its original size. With over 6 million people immigrating to Sao Paulo in the last 10 years it’s not hard to see why this is the case. 6 million people in Sao Paulo were forced to build their own homes deplenishing the resources in the Atlantic forest. It creates a poor sanitation, wide spread diseases and a poorer quality of life.
India, the most populated country in the world, had a population of 1,210,854,977 in the last census the Indian government carried out. The amount of Co2 released by India was a staggering 2,070,000 tonnes, from the United States Department of Energy's Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Centre (CDIAC) for the United Nations. India refused to sign the Kyoto protocol even when produces the third biggest co2 emissions in the world.
What has this got to with the motion? You ask.
Ireland’s commitment to tackle climate change has help stop these problems, while other countries have not supported developing countries. The UN set up a green fund to help developing countries, but only a little over 7.5 billion has been raised globally. France was the leading donator for EU countries; France promised $1bn to a near-empty climate change fund for poor countries on Tuesday and called for the establishment of a new green economy in the first concrete result of a milestone. While Spain pledged to give only $16.3 million. China’s Premier Wen Jiabao announced that China will contribute a measly US$6 million. You can’t even buy a good footballer for $6 million.
Ireland is not only tackling climate change in developing countries, but in Ireland as well. I’ll let Niall talk about that.
Ireland is not only trying to help its self. It’s trying to change the world.
Oppose the motion!!!
