Yawn. It’s just so underwhelming…
The Climate Change Commission unveiled its long-awaited final report on Wednesday, laying out a road map for New Zealand to reach net zero emissions of long-lived greenhouse gases by 2050 and reducing biogenic methane emissions between 24-47 per cent by 2050.
Included are a range of recommendations from phasing out internal combustion engine cars by 2035, banning LPG connections and policies that would lead to livestock reducing by 15 per cent.
…this report is so weak that even Industry, National and ACT are genuinely surprised at its meekness.
Jesus said the Meek would inherit the earth, he said nothing about them writing important social policy!
This is worse than doing nothing – Electric cars by 2035? A small reduction in herd sizes? Some extra umms and ahs tagged in – it’s such an underwhelming response to climate change and if the Greens don’t revolt over this meaningless tripe then what’s the fucking point?
There is no ambition in this.
