Carbon Emissions Could See Irish Taxpayers Hit With €7 Billion Bill Over The Next Decade.

: 06/16/2019 - 09:52

Taxpayers could be faced with a 7 billion euro carbon emissions bill over the next decade.

New government figures obtained by Sinn Fein show that the state is expected to exceed its targets by up to 70 million tons by 2030.

The overrun, coupled with the rising cost of carbon credits, would see the state's bill hit 6.9 billion euro within that timeframe, according to the Sunday Business Post.

It comes ahead of the governments Climate Action Plan launch in Dublin tomorrow.
