An Aer Lingus flight from London City Airport to Dublin was grounded by a climate change protester earlier today.

A number of passengers reported that a man stood up holding a mobile phone as the plane was about to take off and began talking about climate change issues.

Cabin crew asked the man to return to his seat but he refused.

As a result, the pilot taxied back to the gate where police officers came on board and took the man off the plane.

How to win hearts and minds.

Extinction Rebellion activists have glued themselves to one government department and to the underside of a lorry outside another on a second day of protests in central London.

Police have made more than 400 arrests, and those camped out in Westminster have been ordered to move on.

The [UK] prime minister has described the activists as “unco-operative crusties”.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and cabinet colleagues launch the Government’s ‘Climate Action Plan to Tackle Climate Breakdown’.

To wit:

The Government aims to bring 950,000 electric vehicles into circulation as part of the Climate Action Plan, which has been published this afternoon.

It also plans to introduce legislation to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2030, and to roll out a nationwide charging system for electric vehicles.

Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton described the plan as “ambitious but realistic”.

He said it identified how Ireland would achieve its 2030 targets for carbon emissions, and put the country “on a trajectory to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050”.
