Meet the Planet Party. Their policies include:
- All coal mines to be closed down and all coal imports/exports to be banned
- All oil and natural gas extraction to be shut down in New Zealand
This would mean power shortages on a regular basis.
- Total ban of any further imports of Petrol or Diesel fuelled vehicles
So poor people have to buy a Tesla.
To encourage other countries to make a similar effort as we are to implement their own targets (as determined by the IPCC), New Zealand will impose Tariffs on all imports from non-complying countries:
- 2022 – 10%
- 2023 – 20%
- 2024 – 30%
So NZ prices will massively increase while the other countries won’t care as we’re a minnow.
