UNEP in on ‘Clean Green’ New Zealand Scam

Posted by te2ataria on November 14, 2009

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.

Dow Agro Sciences, formerly Ivon Watkins-Dow, the company that manufactured the deadly chemicals, said it “did not know how chemicals got there.”

“Operations leader Andrew Syme said the company would have used municipal landfills along with many other companies in the past.” Report said.

“The company’s long-standing practice was that chemical drums were not disposed in public waste facilities and Dow AgroSciences had not handled tetrachlorobenzene and trichlorophenol for more than 20 years, he said.”

“Former Banks St resident Noel Scouller, 72, said his four children used to play in the dump before it was closed over.”

Mr Scouller and his four kids, have suffered illnesses which he said “came from living next to the dump or near the former Ivon Watkins-Dow plant.”

“I’m just hanging in hoping that one day someone will be answerable and say sorry. I don’t want the money, I just know in my own heart that dioxin is the cause,” Mr Scouller said.

“Mother-of-three Gloria Bristone said she hadn’t thought about letting her kids play on the old dump site before, but it explained why their grazes and cuts took longer to heal.” Report said.

“A couple of days after the kids go there they get a lot of sores, kind of break out in a rash,” she said.

“The sores don’t heal as fast as they should do our oldest has been on medication for three months and it’s only just gone away.

“The doctor didn’t know what it was.”

According to Dioxin campaigner Andrew Gibbs “the levels of dioxin found in Marfell were the highest-ever detected in New Zealand.”

Taranaki Regional Council say their tests  showed concentrations of dioxin in the buried drums was three parts per million.
