Hot of the press is this report released today by the New Zealand Institute looking at climate change and specifically New Zealand’s response to it.
The title, “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”, is very apt, the report is saying much that sensible New Zealand has been for quite some time that is;
- We need to develop our economy to be less impactful
- We need to develop a world leading national environmental brand to offset international concerns around environmental footprint
- We need to ease the gas on the rhetoric but apply more to the action
Good thoughts from the NZI, time will tell if the politicians have the will and the clout to action them (and in defence of the politicos, these issues take unified actions – govermental, commercial and societal).
