I’m really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, loving watching Green MPs trying to tell everyone that this bullshit meaningless nothing of a climate crisis announcement is worthwhile.
If you believe as I do that the climate crisis is an existential threat to our species, being carbon neutral by 2050, after the polar ice caps have melted, isn not a solution.
By 2030, over 50% of the oceans will be collapsing as bio-habitats.
By 2030, East Coast cities in the U.S. can expect to see two to three-times as many flooding incidents.
By 2030, 122million will be driven into extreme poverty as direct result of climate change.
By 2030, 100million will die as a direct consequence of climate change.
By 2030, even if the Paris Agreement is actually implemented, we will see a planet warm to 3.4 degrees by the end of this century meaning there will effectively be no future civilisation capable of surviving on a planet that warm.
2030, the number of extremely hot days — classified as maximum temperatures of more than 35C — are tipped to climb in all capital cities.
If you think being carbon neutral by 2050 is an answer, you are part of the problem.
This isn’t Green, it’s a pale lime.
Hilariously, Christian Lex Luthor blunders once again under the high ball and manages to take all the news focus off how disappointing the self defeating Greens have been with this blancmange of nothing by brainfarting some stupid thing his boofheadness thinks without really thinking…
National Party leader Christopher Luxon has defended calling for corporations to slash their emissions while saying he would allow oil and gas exploration.
…on top of this, he hilariously demands no corporate welfare to fund transition, EXCEPT for the Cow Industry, they can have as much corporate welfare as they can gulp down.
So he’s calling for companies to slash their emissions with no help from the Government (except the Dairy Industry that National are slavishly submissive to) while opening up more gas and oil exploration?
There are 10million cows in NZ, each cow generates the faecal load of 14 people, that’s 140 million people passing and shitting all over our waterways, and that’s no issue for Christopher, but giving them a break is fine?
Christopher believes in an evangelical prosperity theory where his 7 properties are evidence Jesus loves him and he’s special.
That’s what National are selling a frightened and uneasy electorate, Christopher’s sense of self certainty.
Christopher is certain God loves him, and he imbues that certainty effortlessly in his 45 second CEO soundbite routine, but beyond that, he has zero intellectual curiosity in anything other than God loving him and allowing him to live his best blessed life.
Christopher cares about the first class passengers and when he wants to be ghetto and working class he talks to the pilots and first class cabin staff.
Christopher considers those who can’t afford to fly as bottom feeders.
Thankfully for National strategists, Christopher’s contempt for the little people doesn’t detract from his certainty, it probably boosts it.
NZers love being bossed around by rich men in suits. It fulfils a lot of suburban fantasies for both bored wives and repressed husbands.
Christopher’s ability to become David Shearer after 45 seconds won’t blunt Christopher’s appeal to frightened and angry voters who hate Jacinda, because Christopher’s certainty is what those voters desperately want and need.
Meanwhile the world burns and planet melts in what is rapidly becoming a run away event of cascading environmental crises.
The mega drought which has been caused by extreme weather events has interrupted the global agricultural calendar and is an exacerbating factor alongside the Ukrainian war that will spark a famine and mass uprising throughout the Middle East that will quickly spread.
The climate crisis is upon us and the Greens have no real solutions while National will only make it worse.
