Newsom Signs Agreement With New Zealand Prime Minister To Combat Climate Change

May 28, 2022 16:00 pm · 32 comments

Gov. Gavin Newsom and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a new partnership Friday to combat climate change and reduce pollution.

The two executives met at the New Zealand Garden in Golden Gate Park’s Botanical Garden to sign a memorandum of cooperation, outlining the state and country’s goals of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050 and expanding the use of zero-emission transportation methods.

“No country is immune from the impacts of climate changes, so it’s just common sense to collaborate with likeminded partners to meet our mutual goals,” Ardern said in a statement.

“This agreement means we’ll work together to share expertise and experience and collaborate on projects that help meet each other’s targets,” she said.

Newsom has previously signed similar memorandums with leaders in Japan and China in an effort to strengthen their relations with the state and accelerate initiatives to reduce carbon emissions.

In 2020, he issued an executive order that will require vehicle manufacturers to fully phase out the sale of new gas-powered passenger vehicles by 2035.

“Later is too late to address climate change, and California is taking aggressive steps to bolster the clean economy while reducing pollution in our communities – but we can’t do it alone,” Newsom said. “This partnership with New Zealand, another global climate leader, will strengthen ties between our two governments to deploy critical solutions that are essential to addressing this existential crisis.”

Birds of a feather.
ALL of Jacinda’s citizens HATE “her”.
All a bunch World Economic Forum puppets…..put into office Not by the People.

The climate has been changing for MILLIONS OF YEARS and will continue
to do so no matter how much they tax and control us.

@Old Otis
So true! I think there has been 5 recorded ice ages. Long before we were using fossil fuels.

Reading this has motivated me to prepare a memorandum of cooperation with God. I’ve requested if there is a choice to die in 2050 or when California becomes carbon neutral, please arrange for the latter. As there is no way in heaven or hell California will be carbon neutral by 2050. That’s the chimpanzee part of your brain talkin’ to ya Gav.

The two most woke leaders in the world promise to do something about climate change while ignoring China, the largest polluter in the world, by far.

This is beyond Newsom’s pay grade.

Man, that’s for sure.

There is no climate change. The weather changes day to day.

They are perfect for each other. Now see who your leaders are in bed with. Newsom would have handled Covid just like NZ if they’d let him.

Can’t wait to see how many people will be able to afford all electric cars.

America May 28, 2022 at 5:47 PM

This is all BS. He thinks he is more important than he is.He is pure evil. He is currently being sued by the Orange County board of education to end the state of emergency. His response to questions of what policy or science he using to refuse to end the state of emergency were” Defendant declines to respond to this Interrogatory.”
He has signed so many new laws ( and not related to the virus) because of “the state of emergency” he can bypass the legislature and “We The People” . He will never end it, he will never give up the “emergency “ power. Vote the dictator out!!!

Much ‘thanks’ for your forward thinking mandates to eliminate all gas powered automobiles by 2035. Such a ‘visionary’ to have aggressive goals to be carbon neutral by 2050, as much of the CA populace will appreciate fully with the current fuel prices. The people of CA must endure financial sacrifice and procure an electric vehicle, perhaps recommend no less than a Tesla Model S, with a starting price of $100K, which likely all CA citizens can easily afford.

I read you have tested positive for COVID, despite the shots and boosters. The science(tm) has recommended a Remdesivir regime, followed by a ventilator, the desired protocol. Godspeed to you on a successful recovery. The citizens of CA are wishing you the best of health, perhaps a future bid for president, continuing the current Brandon administration and applying such successful policies in CA and apply them at the federal level.

Isn’t this a Treaty?

Why isn’t this a violation of Article 1, Section 10, clause 1 of the US Constitution?

“No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.”

They do treason right out in the open now and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. This fool calls California a nation state. Does anyone even understand what that is? This is so much treason. These globalists are stealing whole states now acting like California is it’s own country separate from the United States. Clear violations of the US constitution. I do not understand how this keeps happening unless it’s following a script and everyone is in on it. There should be charges, arrests, and hangings. Next he will be running for president..

Sick of it May 29, 2022 at 7:08 PM

Sam you are right there is a script for it. The whole Democratic Party is in on it too from all levels of government. Need to vote all of them out and start to try and save this state, if it’s still salvageable at all for the damage and corruption that they have done

Captain Bebops May 28, 2022 at 6:17 PM

Sounds like a couple of 5 year olds thinking they’ve solved the world’s problem before their parents tell then the world doesn’t work that way. How did these people get into office? They are pretentious as hell!

Original G May 28, 2022 at 7:05 PM

Plot their ‘global warming’ temperature, using same time scale plot planet’s population and compare the two. An what do ya see ?

There are an estimated 40 million sheep in New Zealand compared to an estimated 10 million registered Democrats in California.

Dr Jellyfinger May 29, 2022 at 8:52 AM

Carbon filtered sheep diapers are the answer to sheep flatulence destroying the environment.
The daily changings may prove expensive and time consuming tho,
and the price of lamb will go up Biden style.
A small price to pay for this incredible transition designed to drive us all into becoming Vegan Socialist Zombicrats.

Concerned Citizen May 28, 2022 at 10:23 PM

More socialist plots by socialist leaders.

It seems like Biden is following all of Gavin Newsom’s plans and ideas for the whole country as well.

Sick of it May 29, 2022 at 7:35 AM

What a idiot. New Zealand with a population of not even 5 million is really going to make a difference at all. Lol. CA homeless population probably has a bigger impact on the climate than New Zealand. Remember to vote this fool out and all other democrats, let’s T try to save CA from the damage they have done

Randy May 29, 2022 at 8:07 AM

Climate change started a 100 yrs ago or more… it’s part of earths cycle… the wildfires contribute more pollution than today’s cars… and some new scientific studies are saying the building and charging of today’s electric vehicles contribute as much or more to pollution than clean gasoline cars of today

Deb Shay May 29, 2022 at 8:16 AM

So I assume this New Zealand PM swam to CA since taking a plane…correction, private plane…would (gasp) further pollute the environment and accelerate climate change.

How very noble of her.

How can a single state of the United States of America sign an agreement with a foreign country? Yeah, didn’t think that was legal or binding.

But I am sure that they are Newscum Loving people in this state (some of those fools elected him to office) that think Newscum is God Reincarnate for his forward (HAHAAHAAAA) thinking …

Wonder if the feds could get involved and arrest this piece of degenerative trash that is ‘representing’ California and throw him in a federal jail and lose the key for violation of a law …. that would be so so nice …

HappyPappy May 29, 2022 at 2:18 PM

So now……gov Nusance has granted him international powers? Another example of the blind leading the blind. That “agreement” isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.
Prove me wrong.

Whoe Jim May 29, 2022 at 7:03 PM

Newsom is theoretically trying to save the world, all the while destroying ours in California….

What about signing an agreement with the DA to allow PD to finally clean up crime in this community? Instead of letting them all go to commit more and worse crimes!!!
