Forest & Bird is urging people to support the Zero Carbon Act.
Right now, we’ve got floods affecting not only people, but also our precious wildlife, and at the rate we’re going, this is going to be the new normal.
Cutting emissions is one of the most effective things we can do to reduce the impact of climate change, but we need to work together to do it.
Adelia Hallett – Forest & Bird
Setting a long-term goal and establishing a climate commission could be the key to unlocking climate action beyond short-term electoral cycles. It brings transparency to government's climate change commitments.
It would give businesses, councils and ordinary Kiwis a predictable pathway for our national shift to a clean energy future. Businesses and investors especially need that information to make sensible, future-proof budgeting decisions.
David Tong – WWF-New Zealand
Carbon pollution is threatening the air that you, me and our children breathe, the seas we swim and fish in, and even the land which gives us our food. And our neighbours in the Pacific, who have caused some of the very least pollution, are those who are facing the worst effects right now.
All the political parties who care about New Zealanders, who care about our way of life, who care about our Pacific neighbours, should be backing this important proposed piece of legislation right now.
