SnippETS for 14 June 2018

June 14, 2018




Welcome to our latest SnippETS new letter. This week we take a look at a NZ’s move to zero carbon. What we need to do and other countries that are already working towards the Paris goals. Electrification of just about everything will assist in the move towards zero carbon. EV vehicles will play a part in the move towards zero carbon but there are issues along the way. Shipping companies are now looking to lower carbon emissions, from simply travelling at a slower rate of knots through to new ship designs. Finally as Trump ratchets up the threat of a global trade war, why not look at alternatives to business as usual that could encourage a move to reducing carbon!



The age of carbon is upon us and we finally have a government that wishes to address climate change. Last week James Shaw, the Minister for Climate Change, kicked off the consultation phase for the Zero Carbon Act. The government would like people to submit their views for consideration, but do so soon because consultation ends on July 17th. 



So the government has announced that NZ is aiming to be carbon free by 2050, but what does that mean and how do we get there? This article looks at some of the hurdles that we need to overcome, and some of the methods we may employ in getting there. It is by no means exhaustive, but gives a decent overview. 





 Since the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015, it now appears the world is finally ready to face climate change. This is evidenced in the fact that more and more nations are announcing bold plans to tackle the behemoth. New Zealand recently joined other nations with banning oil exploration; while several countries have banned coal, protected forests and put timelines on the phase out of conventionally powered vehicles
