When Chai Jing's unborn daughter was diagnosed with a tumor she took up a 'grudge with air pollution'. Her documentary 'Under the Dome' was released over the weekend and it's putting huge pressure on China's government and polluting coal industry to clean up.

Air pollution is an energy problem, and new data shows that China is starting to take action on coal, with use reducing by 2.9% in 2014. We need to stop investing in the coal industry and instead invest in a clean low-carbon future.

This year marks 100 years of surfing in New Zealand! Between now and the end of March events are being organised so you can celebrate both our beautiful surfbreaks and the historic 1915 tour of NZ by Duke Kahanamoku, the father of modern surfing.

The first event kicks off this Saturday at New Brighton Pier in Christchurch. See http://bit.ly/1BdOODR for more details.

385 million years in the making and trees are still our best carbon capture and storage technology. Yet new figures show we're woefully behind on our targets for forestry plantings.

2015 is a critical year for action on ‪#‎climate‬, we need a plan that works. ‪#‎COP21‬

Today and tomorrow is your chance to be part of the world's first global divestment day, a growing movement making fossil fuels history.
Today, we've asked the NZ Super Fund to stop investing in climate catastrophe, and to ‪#‎divest‬ its at least $676m away from fossil fuel companies. https://www.greens.org.nz/news/press-releases/greens-call-super-fund-divest-fossil-fuels

Many countries have already banned the testing of cosmetics on animals, and soon, Parliament will be voting on a change to the Animal Welfare Amendment Bill put forward by Green MP Mojo Mathers to ensure that these cruel tests don’t happen here.
It's time for NZ to ‪#‎BeCrueltyFree‬, please take action today. http://bit.ly/1Cm95TG
