We are witnessing a remarkable turnaround in New Zealand politics. The Coalition agreement entered into by National, ACT and New Zealand First reflects the first three-party coalition deal in our country’s history. Democracy can be seen to have prevailed, with MMP delivering what a majority of New Zealanders want.
80,000 delegates and 5,000 journalists are winging their way to Dubai from all corners of the world (including thousands in their personal jets) for COP28 of the UN’s FCCC. Their earnestly stated objective is to stop the world from warming by as much as 1.5° C above the levels of 1850. Yet they know this is a lie. They know it is unethical.
Labour’s decimation in the polls represents a rejection of woke. New Zealanders do not want to be divided by race, nor by any other categorisation, and nor do they want to be threatened by exaggerated climate predictions to justify authoritarian control.
Since He Puapua transfers democratic rights and public resources to the tribal elite, it represents major constitutional change. But with Labour securing no public mandate for He Puapua, all policy enactments are illegitimate and should be scrapped. That includes the Maori Health Authority, Three Waters, and all commitments to co-governance.
New Zealand farmers feed 40 million people and the IPCC was crystal clear in the Paris Agreement – do not take any climate mitigation action that “threatens food production”. Our farmers produce food more efficiently, both environmentally and economically than any other country. It makes a mockery to penalise them.
If our climate models used realistic scenarios instead of those discredited by the UN - and the correct value for methane - we would not need an emissions trading scheme, a carbon tax, or any of the myriad of climate regulations that have been imposed onto the country.
Abandon net zero, abandon the emissions trading scheme, forget about agricultural greenhouse gases and rejoice that the increasing levels of carbon dioxide are making our plants grow better and making us all more prosperous.
If the mainstream media had been acting as our democracy’s Fourth Estate, instead of promoting climate alarmism, it’s likely that the public would be outraged about the extortionate costs that Labour and the Greens are attempting to force onto the country through their Zero Carbon agenda.
It beggars belief that our legislators are prepared to commit to multi-billion-dollar policies to achieve supposedly science-based objectives, at a time when the scientists themselves say they don’t yet have a clear handle on this very new area of their discipline.
