The award winning documentary Hot Air, on the politics of climate change in New Zealand, by Alister Barry & Abi King-Jones, is now free to view on Youtube. See also the site www.hotairfilm.co.nz. Fascinating stuff, do watch…
The politics of climate change in New Zealand. In precise, documented detail we see how, over twenty years, National and Labour government ministers, supported by advisers and scientists, presented their Cabinet colleagues with proposals for nation-wide action. With similar clarity, we see how big business recruited climate change deniers and spin doctors to manipulate public opinion, frighten politicians and remove climate change from voters’ attention and governments’ agendas. As the film takes us behind the scenes we begin to see exactly why and how we are allowing corporations and their executives to subvert democracy.
It did tend to make some of the politicians look good.
But they still voted for the growth based savings scam Kiwi Saver.
