40 percent by 2020

by frog

Here’s a compelling video from the great people at 350.org.nz urging all of us to get off our bums and have our say at the Government’s emissions target meetings around the country over the next couple of weeks.

It is vitally important that we turn out in numbers and let the Government know that the future is not negotiable!

Contrary to rumours spreading fast, I have it right from the folks at MfE that you do not have to register in order to have your say. They would like you to register so they have a sense of the numbers, but it is not mandatory.

I’ll be coming back here soon with more information on what you can talk about, some facts and figures, and some other advice. The important thing is that you turn up and be heard, whatever your opinion. In the meantime, enjoy the video!
