Lessons for New Zealand

The shock invasion of the Ukraine serves as a grim reminder of the fragility of freedom and democracy in the face of powerful totalitarian aggressors. But it should also be a wake-up call - the invasion of the Ukraine is being financed by Western nations that have sacrificed energy security for the United Nations’ zero-carbon economic suicide pact.

The Green Dream Goes Lethal

Through their unhinged obsession with “climate change,” America, Britain and Europe have handed Putin his greatest weapon against them. In their determination to reduce carbon emissions by turning against fossil fuels, and having put so many of their eggs in the basket of unreliable renewables, they have made themselves dependent on Russian gas.

The Great Climate Reset

Regrettably, New Zealand could be about to enter a phase of radical economic reform, justified by the Prime Minister’s desire to penalise our country through harsh new emission reduction targets, while the world's largest emitters carry on as usual with no imperatives to structurally change their economies.

They are Laughing in Our Faces

There are literally tens of thousands of professional climate activists working on a full-time basis and drawing wages funded by these “philanthropists”. They make up the bulk of the non-delegates at the Glasgow convention. What hope does common sense or moderation have in the face of such an army of propagandists?

The Wrong Path

Jacinda Ardern understands only too well that panic and fear are powerful instruments of political control. By creating widespread alarm that climate change is an emergency or a life or death crisis, she is clearing the way to transform New Zealand into a socialist state - with her firmly in control.

Climate Commission's Radical Plan

According to the IPCC, once a country has an ETS in place, no other policy interventions are necessary: “if a cap and trade system has a sufficiently stringent cap to affect emission‐related decisions, then other policies have no further impact on reducing emissions”.

Commissioning Transformation

The Climate Commission’s first report is a huge disappointment. It is little more than a well-polished propaganda vehicle. With its woke-word-smithed style, it could just as easily have been published by Greenpeace...

Governing for Every New Zealander

I wonder if Jacinda Ardern understands that governing for every New Zealander means setting aside policies that are driven by extremism in favour of those that represent the public interest?

United Nations Agenda 2030

Let's make no mistake that behind the smiles, sits the most radical socialist government in our history, with a Prime Minister intent on embedding the objectives of the world’s most socialist organisation into our policy and legislative framework.
