Avengers star Mark Ruffalo may be long gone green, but now he’s backing Ireland’s Green party in their bid to ban fracked gas imports.
He’s due to join the Green Party Leader and Deputy Leader, Eamon Ryan and Catherine Martin, to discuss stopping US fracked gas imports in Programme for Government in an online webinar this evening.
US and Irish anti-fracking campaigners will join Eamon Ryan and Catherine Martin this evening (Monday) at 7PM for a livestream event called “Ireland’s Green Future” about the Programme for Government, focusing on how the programme would stop U.S. fracked gas imports. That would make Ireland the first nation in the world to do so.
Instead of powering Ireland from increased fracked gas imports, the PFG also states that Ireland will lead the world on renewable energy procuring at least 70% renewable electricity by 2030.
Mark Ruffalo has been actively advocating to stop the US fracked gas import terminal in the Shannon Estuary that would export fracked gas from Northeast Pennsylvania.
Good news! Ireland is poised to stop the import of US fracked gas🍀 If @greenparty_ie, @FineGael, @fiannafailparty members vote for Programme for Gov't, Ireland could become a world leader on climate. Hopefully #IrelandsGreenFuture will be a reality! #NowIsTheTime #PFG https://t.co/AuZurIH7PR
