Irish engineers issue stark warning about climate change

Belfast Telegraph: The Irish Academy of Engineers has issued a stark warning to the Government about the impact of climate change on Ireland. In a report out today, the organisation says Ireland's infrastructure and planning system will be unable to cope with imminent changes in the weather.

It is calling for a major overhaul of the Irish water supply, the establishment of a flood-warning system and a long-term plan to improve infrastructure. The academy also says a body should be set up to oversee climate change strategy on an all-island basis.
