    Has this really been our Nuclear-free moment? We must demand better of our state:

    A major new international report shows last year again broke climate records, with the highest ever recorded greenhouse gases, ocean heat and global sea level rises.

    Read highlights of the report here, and the full report here

    A separate OECD study released on 29 August showed member countries had a huge increase in fossil fuel subsides last year as energy prices rose.

    In July, the New Zealand Government announced it was extending its reduction of petrol excise duties and road user charges until the end of January 2023 in response to the ongoing volatility of fuel prices and the cost of living crisis.

    One of the few truly effective ways of drastically reducing emissions is to stop burning fossil fuels.
