Better New Zealand proposes to remove all regulation and Acts of Parliament dealing with Anthropogenic Global Warming, Climate Change and Carbon Dioxide emissions
The reason why
World 148,429,000 sq Kms
N Z 268,021 sq Kms
NZ = .18%
N Z 4,370,000
NZ = .06%
CO2 Emissions World
N Z 54,000,000
NZ = .15%
"If every nation fulfills every promise by 2030, and continues to fulfill these promises faithfully until the end of the century, and there is no 'CO2 leakage' to non-committed nations, the entirety of the Paris promises will reduce temperature rises by just 0.17°C (0.306°F) by 2100.”
Bjorn Lomberg Peer reviewed Article in Global Policy Journal
If New Zealand emits .15% of world emissions and total compliance over 70 years by all signatories of the Paris Climate Accord will achieve .17 of one degree centigrade it follows that if New Zealand achieves zero carbon Dioxide by 2035 and continues that effort until 2100 then New Zealand's contribution to the reduction of Anthropogenic Global Warming will be .000255 of one degree
That is .2 millionth of one degree.
Better New Zealand believes for New Zealand to cripple its oil industry, its dairy industry impact horticulture, impair the supply of energy and lower the living standards of all New Zealanders to reduce world temperatures in 2100 by .2 hundred thousanth of one degree is futile.
Therefore all efforts should cease.
If a New Zealand Government in 2040 finds that changing the world's temperature by .2 hundred thousanths of one degree is vital to the nations interests then time will have provided proof of the original theory by that time and policy can be framed accordingly.
