• The people's bid - no more oil and gas drilling in Taranaki
    To defend our climate, we need to stop handing out oil and gas permits. The government has opened up 2,188 km² of Taranaki land to oil companies. We are saying: NO WAY! Handing out permits for more fossil fuel exploration while the planet is melting can only be described as ecocide and crime against humanity. Fossil fuel companies have known of their impacts on climate and ocean chemistry for many decades, and have acted to increase their biosphere-destroying activities, not transition to clean renewables. We are reading reports about the collapse of the glaciers in Greenland and the collapse of the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The melting of the ice will lead to sea-level rise of several meters. Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere keep rising due to increasing emissions despite politicians saying that climate change is a priority. If we are to take climate change seriously – and we owe it to our children – then we need to stop drilling for more oil and gas or digging up more coal now. Handing out permits to oil companies now is like handing out death certificates to our children. Find out more on the Climate Justice Taranaki website: www.climatejusticetaranaki.info

  • Protect Aotea from marine dumping
    In February 2019, the Environment Protection Authority gave Coastal Resources Ltd (CRL) permission to increase the amount of sediment it dumps from 50,000 cubic metres to 250,000 cubic metres annually for 35 years, just 25 km of the east coast of Great Barrier Island. Kelly Klink, of iwi Ngāti Rehua-Ngātiwai ki Aotea and the Society for the Protection of Aotea Community & Ecology have lodged appeals against the resource consent in the High Court. Ngati Rehua Ngatiwai ki Aotea have a significant and an undeniable interest within the area - holding mana whenua and mana moana. Kelly states that ‘the proposed activity will have an irreversible impact on our moana’ and further ‘the harm will be irreparable to the wairua and mauri of Moana nui o Toi, adversely affecting the marine environment upon which our iwi have relied on mai rano’. The approved consent is a 500 % increase from the current consent! This will have significant negative impacts to the marine environment (for example, substrate smothering, heavy metal contamination, water quality degradation, effect of sounds on marine life such as whales, changes in marine life behavioural patterns, increased bio-security risks). The community of Aotea, need your help to support the expensive legal costs involved in a High Court appeal. If you can, make a donation. We face a long game with lots of legal costs and are really relying on the financial support of New Zealanders who love Aotea and want to see a better future for our stunning oceans and our unique island. If you can please make a donation through direct debit to Protect Aotea bank account, 03-0296-0454684-000 Or donate through www.givealittle.co.nz and search Protect Aotea For more information on the consent application please refer: https://www.epa.govt.nz/public-consultations/decided/coastal-resources-limited/

  • Ban Synthetic Nitrogen Fertiliser: Gisborne District Council
    Synthetic Nitrogen fertiliser props up industrial dairying. It is used to grow too much grass for too many cows, polluting our rivers and warming the climate. But we don’t need it. There is a better way to farm and New Zealand can lead the world in practising it. Together, we can move towards regenerative farming. A way of farming that works with nature, not against it. But to do that, we need to get rid of the enablers of the old, destructive system. We need to ban synthetic nitrogen fertiliser.
