Worth it?

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: Climate Change Minister James Shaw and his 14-strong entourage to the COP26 summit in Glasgow are back home.

After spending nine days in the Scottish capital talking climate change, the delegation spent 10 days isolating upon returning to New Zealand.

Critics point out that Shaw spent more time in isolation than he spent in Glasgow where he announced the Government’s pre-existing policies and NZ joining the Global Methane Pledge.

Critics question why Shaw even bothered to go, burning jet fuel heading to Glasgow to announce things New Zealand had already announced.

It could have been worse though. At least he didn’t take a private jet like 118 of the attending state leaders did, to attend a summit that produced more hot air than progress.
