Sum total of @jamespeshaw’s knowledge of the cost of #globalwarming after one year in office! @EricCrampton

I drew a blank when I asked a year ago whether the minister for climate change knew the cost of global warming to the New Zealand economy as a percentage of GDP. After one year, the sum total of his knowledge of the cost of global warming as a percentage of GDP is a passing reference in the Zero-Carbon Bill consultation documents.

From page 34 https://www.mfe.govt.nz/sites/default/files/media/Climate%20Change/Zero-Carbon-Bill-Economic-Analysis-Report-FINAL.pdf

The only information he has on the cost of global warming as a percentage of the GDP of New Zealand is information I supplied to him.
