Ireland's countryside is fairly nice. But once you're not near the coast it does feel a bit too much like a giant sprawling farm. There's so many cows on grass.
Wouldn't it be nice to return some of that land to forests and bushes and wildlife and that?
Could the government set up a fund to buy land off farmers that don't want to use it anymore. We're going to have to spend about 150 million on carbon credits as a nation soon. So the money shouldn't be an issue. The choice is buy carbon credits or buy land to plant real forests.
