New Zealand’s government is dumping a range of high-profile reforms and emission reduction measures as a part of its promise to refocus on simpler issues such as welfare payments to relieve the pressures that are coming with the cost of living. On Monday Chris Hipkins announced that the government would begin to invest the savings from the dumping of the reforms into increases for retirees, students, unemployed people and parents. These reforms scrapped were massively focused on the reducing of emissions in the face of the impending and evergrowing climate crisis. One of these reallocations includes a 500 million dollar clean car upgrade scheme taht would see old cars scrapped in return for a grant on a lower emissions vehicle.
