2015 is the year for leadership on climate change and inequality.

The Green Party has set its two key political priorities for the next term as tackling climate change and inequality and has issued a challenge to the Government to make 2015 the year it wages war on both.

In his speech in reply at Parliament today, Green Party Co-leader Dr Russel Norman will say the Green Party would focus on the twin crises facing our nation and the world – climate change and inequality.

A brief history of climate change


What a summer! It’s been hot, even here in Wellington. All over the country, green fields have turned a golden brown, rivers have dried up or slowed to a trickle, and, unfortunately for our farmers and for our native plants and animals, the threat of drought now hangs heavy over the land.

Will 2015 be another record year for the climate?
