If you're in Auckland tomrrow you might want to check out Oxfam's climate change action stall in QEII square (opposite Britomart), Downtown Auckland.
Watch, as a world renowned ice sculptor creates a life size ice sculpture of John Key. As the ice sculpture melts John Key will really feel the heat!
Like Greenpeace this year, Oxfam is working to put pressure on the NZ Government to support a fair and equitable deal on climate change at the UN conference in Copenhagen, December 2009.
Much like our Sign On campaign Oxfam is asking the Government to work together with other developed countries to:
- Work within the United Nations to ensure that the needs of the world’s poorest people are at the heart of a new global climate change deal.
- Cut our emissions first, fastest and furthest so that global emissions peak by 2015 and fall at least 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.
- Provide the money and technology needed, independent of existing aid commitments, to help vulnerable people in poor countries adapt to changing climates.
- Reduce emissions to at least 40% below 1990 levels by 2020.
