Climate Change Minister James Shaw has today released the Government’s Climate Action Plan in response to the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into the low emissions economy.

“Our Government is committed to a just and rapid transition to a low emissions economy, because it’s vital that we play our part looking after our planet. We’re already taking action on many of the Productivity Commission’s recommendations. Climate change is an urgent issue requiring an urgent response, to ensure a stable climate for future generations of New Zealanders,” James Shaw said.

I greet you in New Zealand’s first language: kia ora, nga mihi nui kia koutou, kia ora 

I think one of the most interesting part of the speeches here, is people's stories of how they were elected. 

I was a young father and six years ago at the age of 28 I was elected to the New Zealand Parliament, and held the role of the youngest MP. Now we have an even younger 25-year-old in our Parliament, but I joke I still hold the title of the youngest-looking member of Parliament.
