The Minister for Communications Climate Action and the Environment Richard Bruton is in Mayo today for a number of official engagements.
This morning Minister Bruton is at GMIT in Castlebar hosting a Climate Action Forum
The Minister is not for turning on the provision of a new on line Green Schools pack produced by An Taisce - promoting climate change advice, despite the IFA’s opposition to it as farmers claim it promotes veganism. The school pack talks about reducing the consumption of meat and dairy in our diet.
Speaking to Midwest News this morning the Minister was adamant that censorship is not the answer. He said young people would not appreciate not being able to discuss what they eat and its impact on the environment.
He said that when he was young there was always one day in the week that meat was off the menu and that was replaced by fish.
