"The Green Fireman" with Neil McCabe

Using public monies to reduce carbon footprint, practice energy conservation, and raise the environmental awareness among citizens in Ireland. €9 billion is spent by the public sector on goods and services annually in Ireland! Dublin fireman Neil McCabe showed how with a little ingenuity, this money could result in environmentally friendly buildings and huge cost savings to the public sector but will local authorities and the government take notice.

Thats €100bn in spending in the next 10 years, shouldnt that money be spend on local, environmentally sound, clean products and services?   Moving to a green economy is a low carbon economy.

It would save money and create jobs, so whats stopping us.
