The whole climate change hypothesis is a mad, nightmarish cult in which an infantile view of the world, peddling ludicrous theories of imminent apocalypse which owe more to medieval millenarian sects than modern science, is being treated as unchallengeable wisdom by a lazy and credulous adult world that has stopped asking rational questions.
At the point the complainants went public, it would be an absolute no brainer. You have a choice of a scandal that affects your core brand involving the Labour leader, President, Finance Minister and NZ Council. Of course you get rid of the staffer.
There can be no doubt that British Royal Navy captain William Hobson is the founding father both of New Zealand as an independent sovereign nation and of Auckland as its greatest city. No other person has so singularly influenced the course of modern New Zealand history.
New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions are around 0.17 percent of global emissions. Even if carbon dioxide and methane emissions reduced to zero the effect on climate change would be negligible. For all practical purposes, actions by New Zealand have no effect on climate.
The Reserve Bank's action says things are now more dire than they were during the Global Financial Crisis. This is in contrast to the buzz from the Beehive which is: 'Don't worry, be happy'!
The warmers should be careful what they wish for. Already there is evidence that in adopting the idea of man-made global warming lives are being put at risk. Teenagers are being told that they have no future.
The extraordinary Māori land protest at Ihumātao in Auckland is symbolic of our time. It is unlikely to have occurred, say, five years ago.
The Silicon Valley environment is stimulating and rewarding, both financially and professionally. This attracts more smart, motivated young people. There is a whole ecosystem of skills and resources for new technology companies, especially computer hardware and software. And, rapidly growing companies mean more jobs.
