Farm emissions tax proposed in Ireland

Alan Matthews, professor (emeritus) of European agricultural policy at Trinity College Dublin, proposed such a policy during a debate in Dublin earlier this month. While not discounting existing Irish farmer schemes based on feed efficiency, genetics or grassland management aimed at helping Ireland reach its 2030 emissions reduction targets, he sees an on-farm levy as critical if the country is to meet those emission goals.
