At his party’s conference over the weekend Shaw said a National-Act alliance would be the most “reactionary, race-baiting, right-wing” government in decades and made the expected noises about the alleged ‘climate emergency’ etc..

from Brook van Velden, ACT Party

“If there’s one thing the Greens have succeeded at over the past five years it is proving how ineffective they are, even with real responsibility they’ve been unable to achieve anything,” says ACT Deputy Leader Brooke van Velden.

“Green Party co-leader James Shaw is expected to deliver a speech today, which he hopes makes their supporters forget how useless the party has been in Government.

“New Zealand’s carbon emissions have flatlined under James Shaw as Climate Change Minister. Shaw should be focussed on actually achieving results rather than political bickering.

“Most people don’t even know co-leader Marama Davidson is Minister for Prevention of Family and Sexual Violence and Housing Minister responsible for homelessness. When ACT MP Karen Chhour asked her in Parliament about tragic reports of sexual assaults within emergency housing she said she hadn’t even asked for a briefing and that it should be the Minister for Social Development’s remit.  

“One of Shaw’s flagship policies is the ban on oil and gas, a policy created without analysis, without a Cabinet decision, and without public consultation. It was subsequently revealed that there was no cost-benefit analysis and the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment found it would actually increase global emissions by forcing activity offshore.

“Global coal exporters have been the biggest benefactor of the Green Party’s climate policies. According to figures from MBIE, coal use for electricity generation was up 29.5 per cent in 2022. There is no environmental benefit to this policy if Indonesian coal is imported instead.

“If New Zealand wants to avoid burning millions of tonnes of foreign coal in future, the Government needs to re-evaluate its oil and gas ban.

“ACT proposes a realistic, no-nonsense climate change policy that matches our efforts with our trading partners’ with minimal bureaucracy. We should set a cap on total emissions in line with the actual reductions of our trading partners, then allow New Zealanders to import high quality foreign carbon credits so we pay the world price, not an artificial price.

“The Greens are more concerned about the appearance of environmental progress than actual progress and voters are waking up to that. ACT stands for real change in our climate policy, ensuring it is practical, effective, and not going to make life harder for New Zealanders.”‍

from Chris Walker of Kapiti

Noble words, James. One would have to say that you also are a fanatic.

Your recent comment about not wanting to talk to anyone who doesn’t believe in science is rather revealing. Science is never set in concrete as any real science person would know. It is ever changing and being reborn. Well it is unless you have found a group of like minded scientists who are corrupt enough to tell the public that they have a final absolute answer and no more work needs to be done. You seem so sure and honestly care that maybe these people have fooled you.

Your whole working career is based on climate warming so maybe you do not realize that this has become a political weapon for the very powerful who have wished for a one world government for decades and have finally found the way to their endgame. Either you believe in what you’re being told and so therefore do not know what is really going on or you are part of the climate cabal.

The much talked about CO2 is a mere 0.04% of the atmosphere. Even a very thick human could work out that at those sort of minute concentrations, maybe the Sun, water vapours from oceans and other variables have more effect.

As part of your research I give you a link to the 2017 film ‘Climate Hustle 1‘. There is a second part below it if you wish to watch it. There is no or little shame in saying you are wrong but much if you continue denying facts and pushing an agenda you know to be a tool to subjugate our species on behalf of the powerful. Think on that as it my belief that you are essentially a good person but will have to prove it by watching something that goes against your creed.
