Gareth MorganEnvironment

With the Paris conference coming up, Gareth is doing a series of Whiteboard Fridays on climate change. We’ve looked at the latest evidence on sea level rise, and how New Zealand’s targets fall short of what is needed to avoid “dangerous” warming, and how little we are doing to meet those targets.
