Emeritus Professor Sir Alan Mark of The University of Otago

University of Otago Emeritus Professor Sir Alan Mark has launched an appeal, urging Parliament to launch an investigation into climate change and the current state of New Zealand’s environment.

Launched in Dunedin last Friday, Sir Alan says there should be risk assessments of New Zealand’s economic security, energy and climate security, business continuity, ecological security, and genuine well-being.

His concerns have already got the support of celebrated New Zealanders, businessman, athletes, and celebrities as well as academic staff from The University of Auckland, including Distinguished Professor Dame Anne Salmond.

Sir Alan will be speaking at the University on Thursday 20 June, to help raise awareness of his appeal.
