The Detail – a podcast from RNZ/ Newsroom: The climate and changes – what they mean for you


This is an explainer of the draft CCC report from February, but it still peddled the pro line, note how it spun the nonsense that the CCC was de-politicising the process. That is a gross miss-statement right there. This podcast is helpful, but embodies the bias so prevalent about this issue.

A Podcast from RNZ and Newsroom

This Episode –  03 February 2021

The RNZ website notes:

Fewer internal combustion engine cars. More expensive petrol. No gas connections in new home builds. Millions fewer sheep and cows. More native forest plantations. More wind turbines.

That’s a peek of the dramatic changes in society, should the government embrace the recommendations of the Climate Change Commission, which unveiled its long-awaited report over the weekend.

The government is under no obligation to act on the advice. But given the group was set up with support across the political spectrum – and a fundamental point is de-politicising climate action – it would take a brave politician to ignore the advice.

So what would these changes mean for everyday people?

Today on The Detail, Emile Donovan sits down with climate change editor Eloise Gibson to look past the academic discussion of megatons and CO2 levels, and dig into how these policies will affect people’s lives. MORE AT LINK

According to Newsroom,

Newsroom has been commissioned by the RNZ/NZ On Air Innovation Fund to produce a new daily news podcast designed to explain the stories behind the headlines. 

Called ‘The Detail’, it aims to help listeners dive deeper into the big stories to help give an understanding of what’s really going on. We will pick out the news that matters and explain it in detail and in context.

The Detail will be fronted by journalists Sharon Brettkelly and Alex Ashton, and produced by Alexia Russell. We will be drawing on not only Newsroom’s award-winning journalists, but the best reporters from throughout the country; along with experts in their fields.
