First batch of signatories includes TDs from all parties

24 Oct 2005

Friends of the Earth is delighted that TDs from all the political groupings in the Dáil are among the first wave to sign the Climate Pledge.

The signatories during the first week of the campaign include Ruairi Quinn (Labour - Dublin South East), Trevor Sargent (Greens - Dublin North), Pádraic McCormack (Fine Gael - Galway West), Catherine Murphy (Independent - Kildare North), Fiona O'Malley (Progressive Democrats - Dun Laoghaire), Sean Fleming (Fianna Fail - Laois Offaly) and Martin Ferris (Sinn Fein - Kerry North).

The Climate Pledge Campaign is part of Friends of the Earth's work to build public and political consensus around the importance and urgency of tackling climate change. For Ireland to do its fair share to prevent dangerous climate change then it requires leadership from all parties and all governments over the next 10 years and beyond.
