NZ's climate change target condemned

A international group of scientists based in Europe says New Zealand is not doing its fair share to combat climate change. The comments follow the Government’s pledge last week to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 30 percent below the level of 2005 by the year 2030. The Government says this is a significant increase on current targets but it is still only 11 percent below 1990 levels, which is a more commonly used date for calibration.
