A good example of responsible leadership.

Meanwhile, Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia are lobbying the UN to water down its message the we rapidly need to move away from fossil fuels. Nothing sort of evil given the undeniable harm climate is causing, and will continue to cause.

Apparently giving money to the government will halt climate change. Like to know how. Go spend 1 year in NZ and you will soon the the whole thing is a joke.

Shaw, who will head to Glasgow later this month for crunch climate talks hosted by the United Nations,

.

Why head to Glasgow, when he can reduce his carbon footprint by using Zoom or some other less polluting way to talk with others.

How much (carbon foot print AND money) would be saved by the world governments if they did not fly around but just used communication programs ?

.

Also it would reduce the risk of government members bringing back a different covid strain.

How about requiring governments to report on how much useless feel good legislation adds to the problem by creating a phony sense of accomplishment?

Jacinda is a game player and manipulator She has NZers living in terror of covid and climate change.

She creates scenarios and NZers fall into fear-driven unquestioning compliance. I can hardly recognize NZ now.
