  • Climate Change is real, it is happening now and it is serious.
  • Water is precious; the oil and gas industry consume and pollute huge amounts, daily.
  • Land, water, and air pollution is an inevitable consequence of fossil fuel industry activities.
  • Undetonated explosives from seismic surveys, looking for oil and gas, have been left in the ground in Taranaki.
  • Hundreds of dangerous onshore and offshore incidents have been reported to the High Hazard Unit by the oil and gas industry since 2013.
