NZ law student sues government over climate change inaction

Sarah Thomson, a law student from Hamilton, has filed a case with the NZ High Court in Wellington suing the government for failing to set adequate emission reduction targets to reduce the impact of climate change, according to a report.

Thomson, 24, says she was inspired by the world’s first climate liability suit in June, a landmark decision in which the Dutch courts found the government’s emissions-cutting targets were too inadequate and ordered the state to reduce emissions by 25% by 2020 to protect its citizens from the  impact of climate change.

“[Having studied that case] I realised it wasn’t just about the environment, it was about human rights – the right to safety, the right to security,” Thomson said.

Thomson, who has just completed a law degree, told Fairfax that it was the first time she’s taken a case to court.

“I want to be able to look my [future] children in the eye and say that I didn’t just stand by and watch this happen.”

“The science shows that New Zealand’s emissions targets just aren’t good enough to avoid dangerous climate change.  Scientists agree that the reductions are too small and will take too long,” Thomson said.

The case is filed against the government’s Minister for Climate Change Issues Tim Groser.

This Can Only Happen in the Sheep Farm!

The woman, a 44-year-old mother of three,  was later rushed to a hospital in severe pain and had a cyst four times the weight of an average newborn removed.  The cyst was cancerous and she needed an operation to remove her womb, ovaries and fallopian tubes to save her life.

“The doctor failed to diagnose the patient’s abdominal cyst when she visited him on several occasions,” and prescribed her weight-loss pills.

“I’ve lost my insides, but he’s still practicing,” she said.

The sick High Court in New Zealand decided yesterday to grant the doctor permanent name suppression, “overturning an order from the Human Rights Review Tribunal, which said the doctor’s desire for anonymity did not outweigh the public’s right to decide for themselves whether they wanted him to treat them,” reports said.

“The patient told The Press she felt ill the doctor concerned continued to treat patients who were unaware of the misconduct finding.”

“It sucks,” she said.

“If I go to any other business, I can see the certificate of registration on the wall. I can choose whether I deal with them or not. This doctor caused me pain and suffering, but no one can know.” More …
