Roscommon TD says ordinary people will bear burden of climate change taxes

The government’s plan for dealing with climate change is a savage attack of rural Ireland.

Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice maintains that while there are some elements to be welcomed, people who farm and depend on private transport are being penalised more than urban dwellers.

The Roscommon Galway TD maintains that while key sectors like the aviation industry are not included, it’s the ordinary person who will bear the burden of taxes and costs.
