A smart economy is a green economy. There is a huge opportunity for Ireland and TCD to develop a lucrative green technology sector.

For the last five years there has been no Green voice in the Oireachtas. The election of two T.D.s in the General Election was a huge step forward. In addition to the urgency of climate change, I will set the agenda for economic development that is sustainable and profitable in the Seanad.

I will campaign to:
- Lobby to establish a TCD Institute of Green Technologies
- Efficient economic development of forestry, fisheries & organic industries
- Establish Ireland as the home of ‘Green’ cloud computer
