“I believe people are capable of amazing things and I do believe that climate change can be halted and even reversed. I just hope it happens in my lifetime. I don’t want to become the generation that future children talk of as having destroyed the planet. I’d like to be the generation that fought back (and won) against human induced climate change. The generation that worked out how to live in harmony with the planet – that generation!”

3pm today marks the start of the campaign to stop Solid Energy, the heavily taxpayer subsidised State Coal Miner reopening the mothballed Kopuku 1 open cast mine just south of Auckland.
We are not calling for currently operating coal mines to be closed, which is what the science demands, we are merely demanding that no more be opened.
The demand that No New Coal Mine operations be started, or restarted is a moderate one.
Those who support the opening of New Coal Mines in the age of climate change inhabit the lunatic fringe.
This day marks the start of an epic battle for common sense and even conservativism against extreme ego driven radicals bent on self aggrandisement at all costs to the community the environment and the climate.
Join the campaign for common sense and against climate extremism today. Details HERE
