What is the Climate Score?
The Climate Score collates voting records on climate-related Bills of election candidates who have served as TDs between 2005 and 2019 and voted at least three times. Six “Climate Bills” were identified, with 21 individual Dáil votes across the Bills. The Climate Score of each election candidate was determined by how many times they attended and voted for climate action on each of the Climate Bills. See here for details on the methodology and limitations of the Climate Score. We also record above if the candidate has signed the Fossil Free Election Pledge. Not Here Not Anywhere is a non-partisan group and does not endorse any candidate or party.
