New Zealand Urged To Do More On Emission Reduction

New Zealand’s emission reduction targets are under global scrutiny, with many climate change lobbies and environmental experts urging for more action.
The analysis by four global NGOs also indicates proclaimed self-set target as inadequate at the global stage. “While most other governments intend cutting emissions, New Zealand is increasing emissions,” according to Climate Analytics chief executive Bill Hare. The analysis by Climate Action Tracker, which is a consortium of four European research organizations, also warns that if most countries are going to emulate New Zealand’s approach in emission reduction, then global warming may exceed 3-4 degree Celsius and will upset the international goal of restraining temperature hike below 2C.
