Public input into ‘net zero emissions by 2050’

James Shaw and the Green Party are encouraging public input into what can be done to address climate change:

Consultation is underway

We’re already seeing the impacts of climate change and it’s not just an environmental issue – there are social and economic implications too.

You have a part to play in deciding how New Zealand responds to climate change. The Zero Carbon Bill will set the long term commitment to transition us to a low-emission, climate resilient economy.

For information about our specific proposals for the Zero Carbon Bill read the discussion document Our Climate Your Say. Consultation on the Bill runs until 5pm 19 July.

    I’d like to make a submission on Net Zero Greens by 2050.

    Pretty sure I’d get 95% support. 96% would be better.

      I was tempted to say 2020 would be better but I won’t.

        Will you be putting in a subsmission Al?
        Or leaving it up to school kids doing projects?

          Projecting 30 years ahead is just fatuous, G. I’ll leave it to school kids who don’t know any better.

            What they are proposing is destruction of our standard of living on the way to 2050.

            With zero effect on the climate.
