    Government; – if you are not convinced yet, at the gravity of this issue please; – watch the graphic images of large waves washing over a HB residential area homes in this video below.

    We need rail to reduce the combing rate of truck freight emissions as freight transport is a large use of fuel and emitter of carbon emissions.

    Government our East coast Councils nor residents cannot cope with the weather changes occurring now with increasing climate change emissions occurring under Labour Government watch the link depicted below.
    We stand in support Greenpeace on this issue.

    Climate change risks to be assessed as New Zealand’s emissions labelled ‘disturbing’
    The Ministry for the Environment has appointed an expert panel to assess climate change amid claims that New Zealand’s emission levels are “disturbing”.
    A poll last year found most New Zealanders take climate change seriously but few believe enough will be done to help prevent it.

    The inventory showed New Zealand’s gross emissions increased 2.2 percent between 2016 and 2017, and increased by 23 percent between 1990 and 2017. It prompted Greenpeace executive director Russel Norman to criticise the Zero Carbon Act.

    “The world now has just a decade to cut carbon emissions in half to avoid climate catastrophe. We’re already feeling the effects here in New Zealand, with extreme weather events like the Nelson fires, the recent storms, floods and droughts.”

    Quote; James Shaw said; “The world now has just a decade to cut carbon emissions in half to avoid climate catastrophe. We’re already feeling the effects here in New Zealand, with extreme weather events like the Nelson fires, the recent storms, floods and droughts.”

    “From what we hear [the Government] will be setting emission reduction targets thirty years away, overseen by a climate commission with no powers to enforce the targets. This is not an approach that is consistent with the urgency of the climate emergency,” he said.

    “The world now has just a decade to cut carbon emissions in half to avoid climate catastrophe. We’re already feeling the effects here in New Zealand, with extreme weather events like the Nelson fires, the recent storms, floods and droughts.”
