The Irish government has become increasingly focused on exploring energy alternatives, in order to supply the country with safe, sustainable, and renewable energy. With this in mind, iReach Insights conducted a nationally representative survey of over 1,000 Irish adults on their opinions to Climate Change.

In the opinion of adults in Ireland, there should be tougher measures to cut emissions (73%) and the Government should be tougher on big polluters and force them to pay for the environmental damage they cause (84%). Furthermore 8 in 10 adults agree that there should be more investment to create jobs in clean industries (84%) and more charging points for electric cars should be built (83%).

6 in 10 adults (60%) think that time is running out to save the planet. 71% think Global Warming will soon become extremely dangerous without a big cut in emissions, and 77% believe all of us must be prepared to make some sacrifices to lifestyles in order to stop Global Warming.
