Changes in climate will impact NZ

A senior climate scientist says New Zealand may be relatively insulated from the extremes of future weather changes, but is urging the government to look at its implications, including the possibility of huge immigration.

Victoria University senior climate scientist, Professor James Renwick, told RNZ Afternoons New Zealand’s temperate climate meant the country would not be affected as intensely by global warming and associated chaotic weather patterns as other nations, including Australia.

However, the author of new book Under the Weather: A Future Forecast for New Zealand warned Aotearoa still faced climate chaos caused by out-of-control carbon emissions.
