The Herald reports:
Parliament will next week debate if a climate emergency in New Zealand should be declared, leader of the House Chris Hipkins has told MPs.
Speaking in the House after the Speech from the Throne, Hipkins said that the motion will be debated next Tuesday.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will personally introduce the motion next week, according to a spokesman.
Rather than implement policies that will actually reduce emissions, they are instead distracting people by saying “Oh we care so much about this we will call it an emergency”.
They promised the Government vehicle fleet would be emissions free within eight years. After three years they are yet to reach 1%!!!
Yet they have the temerity to next week sit in Parliament and declare this is an emergency when they haven’t even been capable in three years of getting 1% of the government fleet electric.
