No to a news item on climate change everyday

Climate change isn’t something NZ should have a news item on everyday. Tell us why you picked this in the comments.

It would just be propaganda and lies from the UN.

Stop wasting rates on this stuff. The Auckland council is not mandated to meddle in climate change policy. Concentrate on core business. Fix the damn roads! The Takanini motorway is a joke!

Not because it isn't important but its too politicized and public discussions become ineffective. Need to change tack.

There should be news only when it's required.
Otherwise it's not news, it's padding.

I think once a day would be overwhelming and make people switch off. Maybe once a week?

If there are too many stories about the negative impacts of climate change people will be too overwhelmed which leads to becoming disengaged from the topic.

Once a day would risk people switching off the topic and Ben counter-productive. A series of focused articles say once a week or fortnight with a strategic comms plan and message/goals would be more effective.

The climate is changing very very slowly. The temperature is going up by under 0.01 degree each year. The sea level is going up by 1.6mm each year. Look at NIWA data to confirm that.
Nothing much is happening with the climate. There is no emergency.
