The Built Environment unit of An Taisce took time over January to review the very popular database for structures at risk, which was originally released in November 2014. In this we published some 100 buildings and structures at risk which were considered significant nationally and regionally and required intervention to prevent further deterioration.

[A report from Ian Lumley, An Taisce Head of Advocacy, from COP-25.]

Even more visible this year than at COP24 in Poland is the presence of the fossil fuel industry in rebranding itself as the agent of climate action. COP25 saw a wide range of events promoting carbon capture and storage (CCS) and/or biomethane. These were held mainly in the national pavilions, therefore having support of the relevant governments. The promise of bringing in CCS is the new front for continuing to burn coal, oil and gas, with a bit of bioenergy to greensugar the pill.
