In summary:

  1. A separate mandatory target for biogenic methane is strongly advised
  2. A principle for setting intermediate targets is needed for consistency with Article 2 of the Paris Agreement
  3. Scrutiny of climate policy analytical capacity is needed
  4. I suggest that the overly-narrow term “climate neutral economy” should be replaced by “climate neutral society” or “climate neutral state”

My comments were featured in interviews in the Irish Examiner and the Sunday Business Post.
