Wildlife Watch has written about Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, before. She came to office in October 2017 in a big celebration with her cat. Apparently she is sticking to her campaign pledges of protecting the environment. According to The Guardian, “…her coalition government made tackling climate change one of the cornerstones of its policies, committing to transition to 100% of electricity generation from renewable sources by 2035 and making the economy carbon neutral by 2050.
Greenpeace New Zealand said the government’s announcement was a ‘historic moment’ for the country and ‘a huge win for our climate and people power’”.
The PM said: “We have been a world leader on critical issues to humanity by being nuclear free…and now we could be world leading in becoming carbon neutral.”
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our president would follow her lead?
