"With a historic majority under MMP, @jacindaardern has the ability to take transformative action. If she doesn't, her overriding legacy will not be her conquest of Covid-19, but rather her surrender to the far larger long-term threat of climate change." https://www.newsroom.co.nz/the-hard-truth-about-climate-changewhat-the-climate-needs-from-jacinda-ardern
Climate change will shape Jacinda Ardern's legacy
In the decades to come, will New Zealanders will look back on Jacinda Ardern as someone who seized the chance to act on climate or frittered away the opportunity before it was too late?https://www.newsroom.co.nz/the-hard-truth-about-climate-changewhat-the-climate-needs-from-jacinda-ardern
What strikes me here is the date that climate change was first mentioned in the House of Representatives. July 15, 1986. Politicians have been talking about climate change literally my entire life. "34 wasted years".
"The Covid-19 alert level system necessitated a televised address to the nation from the Prime Minister's office. Why doesn't climate change?"
Burn. But accurate. " @jacindaardern can shepherd NZ along the path to a low-carbon economy. Or she could choose not to. She could choose, as have politicians over the past 34 years, to be a soft-core climate denier - saying she believes the science but acting as if she doesn't."
