I am not a member of the Green Party nor agree with many of their ideas but I think it is becoming clear that Green Energy is the way forward and Ireland given its location, the fact that its an island and weather conditions have the potential to be world leaders in the area.
The government have already taken steps to tap into this. Why don\’t they go one step further and install solar panels and wind turbines on every school and government building in the country. In relation to the school suggestion, if children become accustomed to seeing these green energy instruments every day then surely, it will become the norm for them.
Also, could you imagine what such a campaign would do in getting people off the dole and back working again, there are many of these companies around Ireland who are struggling to stay afloat and if they could be given work to develop and grow, then who knows where we could be in five to ten years???
