Bernard Merwood, from the NZ Values Political Party

Do we in NZ take the environmental crises that is rapidly unfolding seriously?

The answer has to be NO. And do the major governing political parties in this country see it as a grave situation, and the answer has to be a definite NO! Particularly when elected members refuse to want to educate themselves and learn from scientists as to what is actually happening.

There is a difference between pale green and dark green political consciousness. Pale green methods mean to just slow things down, and Dark Green systems mean, take a different course and strategy.

What is needed is the will of the people to Tick the Box” every three years on our voting paper, to tell the Government that we want a nationwide stand, an in-depth dialogue, that continuous economic growth is without doubt going to take our future away, and that our children are going to be left with the legacy of our refusal to face reality.

"This has now become a moral issue!"

Listen to a 40 year Values campaigner, who asks the hard questions and requests us to self reflect today, and also look at the option of Dark Green Options and also what the ancient Chinese Taoists offer. Being a way we can look at nature and follow a philosophical system that brings us to a more open and honest way of working with natural systems and each other.
