The Government’s decision to ban gas and petroleum exploration is economic vandalism that makes no environmental sense.
It will ensure the demise of an industry that provides over 8000 high paying jobs and $2.5 billion for the economy.
It also has nothing to do with climate change, simply shifting production elsewhere in the world and will result in more coal being burnt and higher carbon emissions.
It's another blow to regional New Zealand, and Taranaki in particular.
