If I could go off-message for just a moment, I commend him for the support that he and the Taoiseach are giving to a hugely important project in my area of north Kerry, namely, the Shannon LNG project, which now has the backing of a new developer, New Fortress Energy.

Bríd Smith: The planning permission for an LNG terminal at Ballylongford has been extended by An Bord Pleanála for five years. It was due to expire in 2018. Compared with when that planning permission was first given, we now know more about the dangers of LNG, the way that fracking is conducted in North America and the damage the latter does to the environment and the planet. As such, it is...

...is a small amount but the gas only needs to travel 200 miles. Proportionately more would have to be burned if the gas was travelling a far longer distance and far more so in the case of liquified natural gas, LNG.

...need its own production? It is not completely obvious, at least in respect of gas, that there is a movement towards a more liquid and competitive gas market in the absence of the ability to import LNG.

Eamon Ryan: ...fact that we are building new gas networks in the midlands is one of the examples of how this Government does not get climate change. The fact that the Government is even considering a liquified natural gas, LNG, terminal in Shannon and in Cork is an indication that it does not get it. I am sorry about that. The Government is not part of the new clean energy revolution. It is doing...

Joan Collins: ...that will exceed the capacity of those for oil and gas today. I see fleets of water tankers (single-hulled!) and storage facilities that will dwarf those we currently have for oil, natural gas and LNG. He continued to outline the thinking behind financial institutions:Water as an asset class will, in my view, become eventually the single most important physical-commodity based asset...

Eamon Ryan: ...be facing a future where our gas supply is restricted to a renewable supply by 75% for climate change reasons, how is it that Ervia is expanding its gas network now? Why are we looking at two new LNG terminals in Shannon and Cork, which I can only presume is to import American fracked gas, which is a threat to climate? Why is Ervia talking about new gas-fired power stations? How can...
