The logo represents the
most fundamental idea behind Climate First; that New Zealand, to do its fair
share for world emissions reductions, must prescribe an exact year-by-year
emissions reduction pathway, which is the diagonal line in the logo.. The green rhomboid represents
the period from 2035 to 2050 when NZ must have negative net emissions in order
to make up for our budget overshoot from 2024 to 2035, which is the red triangle. This
means that between 2035 and 2050, NZ's trees will remove more greenhouse gases from
the atmosphere than our human activities release.
Climate First in 78 Words
Climate First is an unregistered political party in Aotearoa/New Zealand, running a candidate in the Auckland Central electorate. As our name suggests, our reason for being is to develop policies in New Zealand, which if applied worldwide would prevent climate change worldwide. The most important of these is to exactly define a year-by-year emissions reduction pathway for NZ through to 2050. This will enable people to fully face the magnitude of the emissions reduction task ahead of us.
