Was Luxon’s climate policy sourced from WEF?

Yesterday Mr Luxon launched National’s “electrification” climate change policy. The media presented a 24 minute video wherein he described his plans to legislate to make resource consents for renewable energy projects easier to get.

He also signaled his intention to go full tilt if elected encouraging wind and solar generators and the electrification of New Zealand. Saying it was necessary to meet Zero Carbon targets by 2050. He said private corporations were ready to invest $30 billion in wind & solar farms.

The venue where Mr Luxon spoke was the Chapter Zero NZ Directors Climate Forum. On its about page this organisation says Chapter Zero New Zealand is a member of the Climate Governance Initiative (CGI) with active chapters in 22 countries/regions around the globe.

The Climate Governance Initiative is a direct subsidiary of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.

The Climate Governance Initiative is driven by a community of non-executive directors focused on making climate a boardroom priority, building on the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Effective Climate Governance.

The World Economic Forum has developed a set of Climate Governance Principles for boards of directors, with a view to enabling directors to gain climate awareness and skills, embed climate considerations into board decision-making, and understand and act upon the risks and opportunities that the climate emergency poses to the long-term resilience and business success of their companies, while taking into account all stakeholders.

To support this work, a collective called the Climate Governance Initiative (CGI) has been formed. The CGI Community is composed of directors and subject matter experts, organised into national or regional chapters. The network commits to share knowledge and promote the adoption of the CGI Principles at both a local and global level. Each Chapter has signed up to the CGI Charter.

Most of the chapters have adopted the Chapter Zero brand, signaling their commitment to support the global goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

In spite of Christopher Luxon’s frequent claim to know nothing of the WEF, here he is launching a key part of his Climate Change policy during a formal address to one of its key subsidiaries.

If one reads the subject policy, its hard to avoid the conclusion that National have been captured by the WEF and are intent on implementing policies that favour the business models of its corporate members.

It is extremely doubtful that the electrification of NZ, even if it can be accomplished, will bring much overall benefit to the man in the street. It will though make WEF aligned corporates and their directors extremely wealthy.

The real issue though is Luxon’s slippery subterfuge in forming a political and perhaps commercial alliance with a subsidiary of the WEF when he has adamantly denied ever having any such connection.

He has clearly misled us, and he needs to resign.


  • Thanks Red. Once again you’re on the money. How can anyone in this day and age not be aware of the WEF and its sinister plans?
    The National front bench is full of Schwab and Soros acolytes. We need to expose them.
    I call for a national day of protest against these dangerous ideologies.

    Cheers Red.

    @excalibur890 – yes, I follow you everywhere 😂😂


  • Until Luxon guarantees to repeal Ardern’s oil exploration ban, remove maori names from government departments, stop giving preferential treatment in employment to ethnics, queers, weirdos, etc, especially in government departments; Winston and Act will roll National.


  • He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He wouldn’t have a clue about climate change and its causes.


  • Did anyone else see Chris Bishop on Q and A this morning? The lies exaggerations and distortions he produced to a swathe of soft ball questions from Tame were so outrageous and so numerous I lost count.

    The chance I would ever get to reform Sid Holland’s grand old National Party is as remote as pigs flying spaceships around the sun, but if I ever did get that opportunity, Chris Bishop would be the first one down the road.


  • There is a sensible electrification programme for NZ, and that is hydro electricity and an electrified rail network. Maybe paid for from royalties from oil/gas exploration and extraction instead of frittering the money away in the general fund. The electrified rail network being insurance against high cost oil.

    I would love to know where all the wind/solar is supposed to go for the reason that for obvious reasons you develop your best sites first. So if each site is more and more marginal, when are we tapped out for viable sites?
