The Ardern Government has two months to prove to New Zealanders and the world that it’s serious about climate change, writes Rod Oram on Newsroom. “With 44-days to the October 31 start of COP26, the UN negotiations in Glasgow, New Zealand is backsliding fast… Climate systems are global. So is the climate crisis. Only a global response will work. The longer our Government delays its response, the greater the damage, the higher the cost, and the lower our chances of mitigating disaster here at home.”
