This is actually embarrassing…
Oil industry hunting for documents behind NZ Govt’s halt to oil exploration permits
The oil industry is going hunting for documents behind the government’s decision to halt tendering new offshore oil exploration permits.
The Petroleum Exploration and Production Association of New Zealand (PEPANZ) says it has lodged a series of Official Information Act requests with government agencies on Monday seeking the analysis behind the ban.
“We remain deeply concerned about this decision and the manner in which it appears to have been made,” says chief executive Cameron Madgwick.
Govt to ban further oil and gas exploration, but industry warns thousands of jobs at risk
…that’s right folks! There must be some nefarious reason the new Government are shutting down oil that isn’t the overwhelming science that climate change demands immediate action!
Damn those communists with their facts and reason and more facts!
Where’s Matthew Hooton when you need spin?
He’s got a pretty standard rate for right wing scumbaggery…
…and the Oil Industry are going to need to be more slimy and manipulative than their privileged bubble world will allow for. The New Government aren’t going to back down so the Oil Industry can dig around as much as they like.
