    Bring on the GREEN NEW DEAL!

    Go Jill

    • weka 1.1

      Synopsis?

      • adam 1.1.1

        Green jobs, wind, sun and soil.

        Quantitative easing on student loans.

        Reduction on Military spending by 50%, because economy not dependant on oil etc. So don’t need the 1000 odd bases. I wonder if they will close all 3 here. They will keep the one outside Christchurch.

        full employment.

        More, will look at again tomorrow.

        • weka 1.1.1.1

          thanks adam.

          I think they have 95% GHG emission reduction by 2050 too (haven’t seen the detail to know what that means exactly).

    • Bill 1.2

      Here’s a link to a piece about the presentation to the insurance industry where Margaret Davidson, “NOAA’s senior advisor for coastal inundation and resilience science and services” reported – as claimed by Dr Jill Stein in that interview – that the latest data coming from Antarctica was pointing to sea level rise of about 9 feet or 3 metres by as early as 2050 – 60.

      • adam 1.2.1

        Thanks for the link Bill.

      • Colonial Viper 1.2.2

        For the West Antarctic ice sheet to cause 3m of sea level rise by 2060 roughly 50% of it has to disappear in the next 44 years.

        That’s 68mm of sea level rise per year, on average. Which is 20x faster than the 3mm to 4mm sea level rise per year that we have been seeing recently.

        • adam 1.2.2.1

          You thought I was joking the other day when I said build above 10 metres. At that point, and still – I can not mentioned what I had been told, it still has not been published. Hence I really did not want to argue when it was not public knowledge.

          New Zealand needs a massive future proof and we need it now. 10 meters minimum. That is so we can have redundancy in the face of all the models being too conservative.

        • mauī 1.2.2.2

          Shit. It’ll be interesting to see what the media does with potentially society dislocating news like this. Most likely, send to the recycle bin.

  2. Muttonbird 2

    Europe believes NZ is a tax haven and is investigating. Further evidence of New Zealand’s corruption free reputation being damaged by the John Key government.

    • Anne 2.1

      Which reminds me…

      When is the Auditor General going to produce his/her finding over the dodgy granting of a Niue Island construction deal with ‘Mr Hagaman’ and the Hagaman donations to the National Party?

      • BM 2.1.1

        Anne, Andrew Little is getting sued for uttering the same thing.

        lprent could probably do without the legal hassle.

        • Sabine 2.1.1.1

          and? Mr. Little and Lprent have nothing in common. the one is the leader of the Labour Party and the other runs a political wep page that is not affiliated to Labour as per the information provided.

          so why not ask when the Auditor General is going to produce his/her findings about the odd happenstance of a generous donor receiving an equally generous business contract to upgrade a holiday resort under the guise of ‘foreign aid’.

          Me too I am really curious about that .

          • Anne 2.1.1.1.1

            It was a toss up whether Puckish Rogue or BM would be in first. BM won. 🙄

          • ScottGN 2.1.1.1.2

            I think BM was suggest that The Standard might be on the receiving end of the Hagerman’s rather self-regarding thirst for justice as result of Anne’s comment.
            As for the AG – she’s a ‘her’ as far as I know and thanks to Key and his government’s pretty lax standards the work is piling up.

            • Anne 2.1.1.1.2.1

              Umm… I haven’t cast aspersions on the Hagaman donations to the National Party. Rather, the “dodgy” granting of a Niue Island contract to the Hagaman consortium (whose name escapes me) by the Key government.

              Which is precisely the reason why Andrew Little has sought an inquiry with the A.G. And he would not have been doing his job if he hadn’t. It’s the govt. that’s in the gun here.

              If Hagaman wants to waste money on suing Andrew Little for something he hasn’t done…well, it won’t only be his money he loses but also his credibility.

              • ScottGN

                I agree with you entirely. I was responding to what I thought was Sabine’s misreading of BM’s comment (which wasn’t surprising since it was a rubbish comment anyway).

            • Sabine 2.1.1.1.2.2

              ohh some veiled threats that if a commentator here says something that may upsets a generous donor and business partner of teh national party could get the standard in trouble? is that what you are trying to tell me? 🙂

              really, one would think that the generous donor and business partner of the National Party is to busy for such things…but then i am not a generous donor and business partner of the National Party NZ and would not know what these guys do for fun.

              ahh, hopefully soon the Auditor General tells us how not shady that business transaction was and if quid pro quo was the result. 🙂

        • Daveosaurus 2.1.1.2

          lprent could probably do without the legal hassle.

          Are you threatening lprent?

          I’ll just go and get some popcorn.

    • ianmac 2.2

      Muttonbird. Saw part of the same item in passing on Newshub. Sounds pretty ominous. NZ must obey the requirements of EU in regard to Tax Havens including end to 0% taxing etc. What has been done by Key is not enough. This could/should become big. Another side step by Key? (Where is Key by the way? Out of the country again somewhere?)

      • Muttonbird 2.2.1

        Key only answers questions put to him by More FM so can’t see him getting involved with this one any time soon.

        Woodhouse’s defence is that the OECD are ok with it so there’s nothing to see but hints that if any trading partner sanctioned NZ then they’d change quicker than you can say “tax haven”.

        This sort of reactionary politics defines this government. Do nothing until you have to do something to put the fire out.

      • adam 2.2.2

        Ironically Key is more and more like Sid Holland. I remember reading about him in History, and asking my lecturer about him – he said the thing to remember about Sid, was he was popular, and never in the country.

    • dv 3.1

      The one news item said that of 900 property transfers in a month (I didn’t) 475 were to chines nationals.

      Did I get that right?

      That not 4%.

    • mauī 3.2

      These guys talk about the hot money coming out of China in the trillions. The money is invested into realestate as the Chinese yuan is being devalued to save the Chinese economy. Makes perfect sense to invest in rocketing Auckland house prices instead of facing a 25% reduction in the savings you have. Poor litle old NZ. Watch the bit at 16:00 – 19:00 mins.

    “Agriculture altered the dynamic. Farmers see themselves as apart from nature, not as an integral component within the natural world. Their view of humans against nature was unprecedented in the prior experience of living creatures on earth. This profound shift in orientation was a key factor underlying the demise of religion as nature worship and its replacement by religion as fertility worship.”

  4. “It seems the climatic and biophysical systems that sustain human life may now be entering into a period of rapid change that is likely to surprise us with its velocity. Recent reports of sudden spikes in average surface temperatures have stunned climate scientists, and only a couple of weeks ago the temperature in parts of Greenland was over 35 degrees higher than it should have been for early spring. Last year great fires spread across Indonesia and the boreal forest biome, turning the air grey with ash and smoke for hundreds of miles and even attracting the attention of mainstream media organisations. Closer to home sperm whales have been washing up dead on the beaches of England, their stomachs filled with plastic, and our government is rushing to allow fracking to take place at any cost, and damn the consequences. Did I mention ocean acidification, the nuclear pollution and mass die-offs in the Pacific, or the melting Himalayan glaciers?
    One could go on and on in the same vein – perhaps mentioning that around half of all wildlife has been wiped out in the last four decades – but what good would it do? Facing up to the awfulness of our predicament is simply too painful for most people to contemplate, and so is it any wonder they choose instead to zone out and numb themselves with alcohol and TV box sets? Such a strategy ensures a kind of personal mental safe space, even if it dooms the biosphere in the process. But it’s certainly preferable to looking the beast in the eye, which can lead to depression or feelings of nihilism and hopelessness. Yet what’s a sensitive person to do as everything they hold dear about life on this precious blue marble spinning in space is senselessly destroyed around them?

    http://dark-mountain.net/blog/the-path-to-odins-lake/

    “To even get a feel for the answer to such questions it seems inevitable that we’ll have to plumb the depths of our own darkness. Fear of doing so is an unavoidable element on such a journey, and yet moving forwards is impossible if all we ever do is focus on the light. The process of setting out on that path can have a profound effect on the way one relates to the world, I discovered. It now seems clear to me that as individuals and as a culture we need to advance our level of consciousness and break free of the rotting corpse of industrial civilisation. There can be no techno fixes while we are still governed by a mindset that exploits and dominates and kills. The sad truth is that we have poisoned and disrupted the biosphere to the extent that its life-supporting capabilities are becoming threatened, and maybe – just maybe – we’ve already had the last roll of the dice. If this is true then our final job might simply be to bear witness with good grace to whatever calamites await. Yet to focus on this possibility would be to miss the point and might even make its passing all the more inevitable.
    No, our great task now is surely the work of connection and repair. The good news is that in it there is great fulfilment to be had in remediating the damage our industries have done and healing the hurt we have inflicted on ourselves and other life forms. The collective human consciousness may appear to have hit a stumbling block, but at the same time there are many people in many cultures and nations who have already moved on from the old paradigm of individuality and egocentric thinking, and are instead working quietly and using a multitude of different tools and techniques to create a new type of human culture. This reborn culture is deeply ecocentric and recognises implicitly that when we brutalise Nature we brutalise ourselves. It will be impossible for this new paradigm to flourish without the death of the old unfit-for-purpose paradigm, meaning there is much work to be done in making this happen. And yet flourish it will, and every day more and more people hear the call to adventure and take up the challenge in whatever way they feel drawn to. Building a new life-affirming reality is the best way to address the blues caused by the old death-affirming one.”

  5. SmallFurryAnimal 7

    Interesting documentary on how poverty becomes big business (not terribly unlike where NZ finds itself today – a different type of poverty but still profitable)

  6. mosa 8

    After mistakenly watching One News tonight its official according too Corin Dann the economy is booming, he should know John Key told him over a cup of tea.
    Just another National party propaganda half hour.

    HALLE-FUCKING-LUEYA!!!!!

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/82704149/christchurch-city-council-dumps-plan-to-sell-city-care

    Some good news for once, as Christchurch City Council tells the neo-liberals to get fucked.

  8. Muttonbird 10

    Stats NZ say what we all know. That crime, both violent and non violent, is increasing under this government’s watch. There is a significant violent crime incident making the media every day it seems. Today a guy gets shot in a Christchurch social housing area and the suspect is still on the loose.

    However, the trout says no it’s all a figment of our, and Stats NZ’s, imagination and crime is actually decreasing. Neatly following the party line in attributing the tough work an poor results to the civil service, she says Mike Bush has got this an he is the one who is responsible for the increase in crime.

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11685415

    Silly trout.
