One response to “We’re Saved! New Zealand just Declared a Climate Emergency

  1. The New Zealand prime minister is driven by ideology. Blindly so. That in itself does not matter and it does not matter if she is wrong, but, when she imposes those barmy beliefs that is a matter of real concern.
    AGW, human induced global warming is minuscule. We need more CO2 not less. We have just entered into a mini iceage. The future does not look good for the NZ PM beliefs.
    If the NZ schools and hospitals are going off coal for their boilers just what will the replacement fuel/energy be?
    Wind turbines ha ha ha ha
    PV solar more ha ha ha ha
    A new hydro built by an industrial economy. The dam will have to be approved by the nutty Greens.
    Reminds me of The Beatles, Help I need somebody help not just anybody help no left wing loony heeelp.
