Climate Change Commission releases first official report

Climate Change Commission

The Climate Change Commission has released its first official report, advising the government on what it needs to do to meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement.

The report recommends a reduction in the number of cows in New Zealand, decarbonisation of the energy sector and making electric vehicles the norm on our roads, among other things.

The aim would be to do all this in the next fourteen years.
