Leftist NZ Prime Minister makes moves to destroy Kiwi economy

Ahhh, the virtue-signalling champagne socialists. Can’t help themselves, especially when it comes to “Saving The Planet”!

Looks like the NZ people had it too good under conservatism.

Strange how people become tired of boring – growth, freedom and prosperity delivered to their front doors by conservative governments.

UPDATE:

Is the new Leftist NZ PM so isolated as not to read of the disastrous consequences of going down the unreliable-energy, wind/solar path. Energiewende has destroyed Germany’s industrial heartland and is near implosion. And South Australia – blackout capital of the world with officially THE highest power prices in the world thanks to their mad obsession with renewables.

Early this month, New Zealand’s Labour Party took power thanks to a power-sharing agreement Labour and Green parties with the nationalist, populist New Zealand First party. Aside from being the country’s youngest Prime Minister in almost 200 years, Jacinda Arden is already outlining plans to commit civilizational suicide by joining with countries such as France, Great Britain, Germany and India in their quest to end use fossil fuels.

Newshub reports that Jacinda Arden has announced that this year might be the last that block offers will be made for petroleum exploration. A block offer is a permit issued annually by New Zealand’s government that allows petroleum companies to explore for and extract petroleum and natural gas in certain onshore and offshore areas around the island. Arden is quoted as saying:

It is a process for New Zealand to acknowledge that our future is not in fossil fuels – but we…

Rodney Hide: NZ PM’s Scientific Adviser Talks Non-Science

  • “Consensus is the cachet of politics, not science.”
  • “It’s not what people think or say that matters in science but what objective reality does.”

  • “The theory of man-induced catastrophic global warming rules out next-to-nothing and tells us next-to-nothing.”
  • “The global warming scare is more akin to a modern-day religion than science. “
  • “Science doesn’t argue from authority, elected position, or status. It’s the objective world that decides science; not governments.”

science-v-politics-cartoonFrom New Zealand’s National Business Review:

The Prime Minister’s Chief Science Adviser, Sir Peter Gluckman, has done us all a favour and provided a textbook illustration of the difference between science and non-science.

His recent report, New Zealand’s Changing Climate and Oceans, boldly predicts an average temperature increase of 2.1 degrees Celsius by 2090. That prediction is the key give-away. It’s not science; it’s prophecy.

Science makes bold and surprising predictions but about the here and now, not a hundred years hence. The difference is that scientific predictions are testable whereas prophecies aren’t.
We won’t know for a hundred years whether Sir Peter’s prediction stacks up and the historical experience with prophecies is that there are always excuses when their time is up.

But that’s not all. The Gluckman Report tiresomely declares there’s scientific consensus for the theory of human-induced catastrophic global warming. But so what? Consensus is the…
