UNEP in on ‘Clean Green’ New Zealand Scam

UNEP dishonestly promoting New Zealand as “clean and green” despite common knowledge

You can expect tourism pimps like  Condé Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet and Virgin Holidays promoting New Zealand as a top holiday destination, despite the road kills, extreme violence and pollution, and in the face of the environmental devastation caused by the onslaught of hundreds of thousands of foreigners on our shores, but the rubber stamping by UNEP is nothing short of scandalous.

Here’s what Fred Pearce of The Guardian wrote in New Zealand was a friend to Middle Earth, but it’s no friend of the earth earlier:

But my prize for the most shameless two fingers to the global community goes to New Zealand, a country that sells itself round the world as ‘clean and green.’” —Fred Pearce, The Guardian.

“New Zealand secured a generous Kyoto target, which simply required it not to increase its emissions between 1990 and 2010. But the latest UN statistics show its emissions of greenhouse gases up by 22%, or a whopping 39% if you look at emissions from fuel burning alone.”

In response to which NZ Green Party co-leader Russel Norman hastily walked out of his cocoon momentarily and said:

“It looks like the rest of the world is catching on to New Zealand’s dirty little secret.”

FEWW has posted Small Country, Big ‘Dirty Little Secret’ on their blog which makes interesting reading.
