Deep sea drilling will threaten the marine life that New Zealand is so renowned for. The government is also gambling with the country's economy and green reputation.


Deep sea drilling will soon commence in the rough waters off the NZ coast. This could mark the beginning of an oil rush in which democratic process, public concern, environmental protection and safety considerations are all swept aside.

The logical future direction for New Zealand is blatantly obvious if it wants to live up to its green reputation
