She says if the Government is fair, it would tax the massive corporations.

People before Profit's Bríd Smith says Finance Minister Pascal Donoghue is "Worse than Nero fiddling, while Rome burned".

The TD for Dublin South Central has criticised the Minister for "eulogising the Government's policy of raising carbon taxes on ordinary people as their best response to the Climate Crisis" in light of the IPCC report on Climate change.

The Government is expected to publish a plan to address global warming next month.

Brid Smith says Minister Donoghue is going to make poor people pay for climate change while rich corporations get off scott free.
