Last week the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, Simon Upton, released a climate change report suggesting a major change in the way New Zealand tackles climate change through the Emissions Trading Scheme.
OraTaiao: New Zealand Climate and Health Council says that although the report makes some useful points it fails to hold the agricultural sector accountable for its harm to both the environment and human health. OraTaiao is a group of health professionals calling for urgent and fair climate action with real health benefits for New Zealanders now and in the future. Rhys (Reece) Jones, a Public Health Physician and Senior Lecturer at the University of Auckland, and Co-convenor of OraTaiao, spoke to Jemima about the report.
