Steve Cranston from Groundswell NZ asking the new National Government to be sensible re Greenhouse emissions.


Well done Bryce and Laurie!


All farmers need to get on board and support this very important initiative. Our future, survival and prosperity is in jeopardy if we don't.

It just doesn't make sense....

NZ farmers are the most emissions efficient in the world and are proud of it. We are already world leaders; it makes no sense to impose a tax.

No other country is taxing ruminant methane. The social and economic consequences of a ruminant methane tax are that rural jobs will go, rural communities and businesses will crumble, rural schools will close and provincial towns will suffer. Why would you want to destroy rural NZ?

The sheep and beef sector is already at net zero, not adding any new warming. We are simply a political football.

We know a huge majority of New Zealanders are very concerned about the impact on our country of a methane tax. It’s vital we stand together to stop this insanity.

Please sign the Accord to help us say NO to the methane tax and its implications for NZ.

Of huge importance to farmers!

A new report released by Business NZ has concluded that emissions pricing will be ‘devastating’ to rural communities with 54,000 jobs set to be lost.

Taxing farm emissions is economic sabotage, it’s serves no real purpose other than to appease UN elites. No other country is planning a tax on agricultural emissions.

The current government proposal called He Waka Eke Noa will cost many kiwi farmers their entire business. The most ridiculous aspect of the scheme is it will actually increase global emissions. All that expense and economic harm for zero benefit.

Nearly every policy party in parliament supports this destructive tax on farming. If our politicians had done their research first they would understand that NZ agriculture is likely already climate neutral.

Farmers are being used by this government to offset rising emissions elsewhere in the economy. That is unacceptable.

DemocracyNZ will veto the farming tax.


How the government bites the hand that feeds them!

Steve Cranston (Democracy NZ) continues to question the censoring of vital historic weather events from the general public

NIWA Fraud Case:
In the late 1800’s, storms the size of Cyclone Gabrielle were a 1 in 4 year event. New Zealand had a colder and low carbon atmosphere, yet large storms were more frequent.

How then can NIWA say extreme weather events are increasing due to climate change? Historical weather records show the exact opposite is true. This is likely why NIWA refuses to allow other researchers full access to their tax payer funded database to cross reference their work.

For our premier atmospheric research institution to make such demonstrably incorrect statements on extreme weather trends, then double down and not publicly acknowledge their error, would suggest something bigger is at play.

The independence of climate change research from the government funding it receives needs much closer scrutiny. We have OIA requests to Dr Ayesha Verrall, the Minister for Science, Research and Innovation to try and establish what steps the government has taken to get NIWA to update their incomplete database.

Is the government doing everything in their power to ensure the integrity of climate research or are they complicit in the false narratives?

We do know the government is currently using advice from NIWA for their policy development in the full knowledge that it does not use the best available data.

With the help of Kirsten Murfitt - Democracy NZ Candidate for Tauranga and the rest of the team, DemocracyNZ will restore trust in climate science.

Why it floods wood on NZ's East Coast | John Cambell 07/03/2023

Heartwrenching! The planting of farm forest was initiated and subsidised by government in order to protect the hill country and communities which has backfired on them.

Why it floods wood on NZ's East Coast | John Cambell We drove in the long way - via State Highway 35, through Te Araroa, Ruatoria, Tokomaru Bay and Tolaga Bay. Everywhere we went, there was wood. In rivers. On ...
