New Zealand's DIY Climate Change Fix
According to Stuff, New Zealand's United Future party has released its policy on climate change, which focuses on what individuals should do. They are encouraging homeowners to insulate their homes, taking out loans of around $5K if necessary. It also encourages people to purchase more fuel-efficient cars. United Future leader Peter Dunne said that"we are at a point in the life of our planet where significant change needs to be made if we are to survive". That change could not be made cheaply or easily, he said.
