The article reports on the decline of the agriculture greenhouse gas emissions in Ireland. According to the Ireland Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), such decline has continued at about 1.8% lower than in 2004 despite showing an increase from transport energy. However, the country's emissions in 2005 were said to be 25.4% above the base line estimate. But the decline is said to reflect the country's difficulty of reducing such emissions.
