Turns out that the earth’s climate is more sensitive to warming than we thought, and: Climate change may be escalating so fast it could be ‘game over’, scientists warn. In this “game” New Zealand will be on record as among the most useless of players:
NZ takes home ‘Fossil of the Day’ awards at Marrakech climate conference
New Zealand has been labelled a hypocrite, yet again, for its lack of action on climate change.
At the 22nd annual UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech (COP22), the Climate Action Network awarded New Zealand two Fossil of the Day awards for blocking action on climate change.
The first is for “talking a big game on fossil fuel subsidies at COP22 but failing to live up to its own (good) advice on the home front”.
New Zealand’s second Fossil of the Day was awarded over its continued use of “dodgy” carbon credits. …
Bravo New Zealand, bravo!
