NZ Greens lose interest in global warming – ‘no hellfire, no brimstone’
watts Up With That? ^ | June 16, 2013 | by Anthony Watts

Joe Romm must be upset  that NZ greens are ignoring his trademark “hell and high water”.

From the New Zealand Business Review (h/t to Bishop Hill):

NZ_GW_ends_Whimper

When Jeanette Fitzsimons was co-leader global warming was the greatest-ever threat to the planet. It dwarfed all other environmental worries. It was the granddaddy of them all.

But the shift on global warming with the Greens is significant. We are safe in concluding that they no longer regard global warming as the greatest threat to the planet. It would, I think, merit a mention in a leader’s annual speech to the Greens if it were. A fast-approaching environmental armageddon would be top of mind, not the constitutionality of parliamentary legislation, and not Peter Dunne’s emails.

This will be sad news to the ministry of commerce down there. With the prospect of rising temperatures they were planning an international ad campaign based on: New Zeland—Gateway to Antarctica, the New Frontier.

And why is it the environmental movement is overwhelmingly LILY WHITE? Other than in Africa, and even there a very small percentage of the natives in Kenya, South Africa, etc. seem concerned about endangered species and other enviro problems it’s only White folk that worry about such things. And mostly well-to-do women and men in pony tails at that. Seriously, when was the last time a “Brother” saved a whale? Or a “Sista” expressed concerns about overpopulation? The 0bama’s? Only because they owe the eco’s big time. You would think the eco groups were White’s only clubs. I’ve seen more diversity at a NASCAR race.

I think it's part of the shame and guilt over not just being white, but coming from rich and upper middle class families.

Not only do you never see a brother at one of these environmental meetings, you don't see many Mexican "day laborers" either. These pathetic people never worked a real job in their lives, and they look for meaning in their useless existence.

Joining left-wing causes assuages SOME, but not all of the guilt.

Global warming was simply a propaganda tool to gain foothold for global socialist control.

They're pretty covered by now.

Good point. Amazing how these people, instead of thanking G-D Almighty for their good fortune and doing something truly constructive are so miserable. This could also, to an extent explain substance abuse problems.
