Thank you for the invitation to speak. The Environmental Defence Society is a true leader in New Zealand’s environmental discussion and so it is very special to be able to talk here today.
Can I begin by acknowledging my colleague, Megan Woods, who is our Environment and Climate Change spokesperson and who has been doing excellent work this year.
I’d also like to acknowledge Gary Taylor. I know first-hand that Gary is a forceful advocate for the environment. His voice counts.
