Flashback: Green Party MP Claims More Droughts In NZ if no progress at UN Meeting At Cancun

Wednesday, 01 Dec 2010,  By  Kennedy Graham MP

We can expect more erosion and dry spells like the one affecting growers around the country if no progress is made at Cancun, said the Green Party today.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) warned yesterday that Northland could be in official drought by Christmas. The same day, a Landcare Research report confirmed major erosion was taking place all over Mt Taranaki and blamed increased frequency and severity of storms due to climate change.

“If we are to avoid dangerous planetary warming, we need a fair and binding international commitment to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions,” said Green Party spokesperson on international climate change negotiations, Dr Kennedy Graham.

“While no single flood or drought can be linked with perfect certainty to human-induced climate change, we know that there will be more extreme weather events.

    So, back then, we could have asked, “Are you threatening us?”.
    Now, we look at it and say, “Why yes, yes you were, and have carried out that threat”.

    Many questions and not enough answers – only political posturing. Northland also floods every year. We going to blame that on global warming too? Wouldn’t droughts cancel out floods? Are all droughts caused by global warming? So how do we sort those caused by GW and those caused naturally?

      Drought, caused by man-made chem-trails. Global warming does exist, but not because of CO2 emissions. Geo-Engineering has a HUGE part in this. Also,once drought sets in, Monsanto offers “drought resistant” products. They also have the chemicals needed to nourish them. It’s all a vicious circle.
      Governments that don’t do as they’re told, have “natural” disasters forced upon them due to weather modification techniques. It’s all plain as day, but the majority of the populace are not awake to these facts.

    Honesty is never a factor in just political processes.
    That is why we end up with so many people who arn’t actually faking it, they have ended up totally cutting themselves off from it. That’s the nature of the ‘conspiracy’.

    It’s why societies initially turned to nobility systems when starting to pick up the pieces and branch out, it was a matter of fairly imminent life and death otherwise.
