    Default Climate Change Minister: more labor double standards

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/covid-...ORUGIP6KNVR74/

    The Climate Change Minister is doing his bit by flying to Glasgow for a junket . Yep , lets reduce warming by pumping more carbon into the air from unnessary overseas junkets. Future ban on petrol cars, but unnecessary air travel is OK .
    Because online conferencing doesnt exist I guess.

    And doing his bit for Covid by not doing unnecessary overseas travel .. oh wait OK
    On return thats one less MIQ spot for someone in desparate need to get back to NZ .
    "1 in 75 people in the community population in Scotland had the coronavirus" .
    "An NHS specialist at Scotland's biggest hospital has shared his frustrations as the health service navigates the highest Covid case numbers in Europe"
    So yeah, Glasgow, a good choice .


    Double standards , again .
    Hypocrisy by Labor Govt Minister , again .
    So NZ politicians can say its too dangerous to travel to Wellington to attend parliament , but its OK to Travel to Scotland .

    It is OK when they do it! That minister is Co leader of the Green Party so that makes it even more hypocritical
    I watched a video this morning showing that pink haired expert lady stitting on the beach chatting with some other female at Mission Bay which is more than 5 Km from her home neither of them wearing a mask. She states on TV that masks should be used at all times. Guess level 4 does not apply to her or her friend.

    It's sort of like Animal Farm with these people.

    Yep, Squealer goes to Glasgow.
    Global Warming is Mann made.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    When at that climate conference...
    How will the "Climate Change Minister" explain NZ's importing of dirty coal , as a result of the govt not wanting NZ to produce its own cleaner burning coal or gas .

    You already know the answer to that. He will emphasise that we have stopped mining and forget to mention that we now import the stuff.
