As NZ faces its worst heatwave after the hottest year, Big Oil in NZ are using TV adverts to pimp their propaganda claims that NZ must continue issuing exploration of the very energy source that is causing the fucking climate to dramatically warm in the first place.
It’s like being told you need another cigarette after being diagnosed with cancer.
The oil industry KNEW that petrol pollution was causing climate change back in the 1990s and their response was to fund climate denial groups to con people into believing the science wasn’t clear out, just like the tobacco companies did by pretending tobacco doesn’t cause lung cancer.
By ending future exploration, NZ is sending a clear message that the age of oil is over and that we must diversify into new energy development. The climate is screaming to us in agony from global warming and these pricks are trying to trick NZers into feeling sympathy for them!
Fuck big oil and fuck their propaganda!
