"the Government and Petrobras were aware of environmental concerns - particularly soon after the Gulf of Mexico industrial accident and oil spill - but he was comfortable with the company's "sensitive" approach to its work and legislation was being worked on in terms of environmental requirements needed to be put in place in New Zealand's exclusive economic zone."what he really meant is the opposite because there was no work on safety or the environment - they weren't even considered and that fact, along with the non-discussions with maori, show the make up of the man brownlee. He is crudegerry.
"Documents obtained by Radio New Zealand under the official information show the decision to award the permit was made on technical and economic grounds and did not consider safety or environmental factors.
Petrobras was required to show it would use good oil field practices.
Energy and Resources Minister Gerry Brownlee said specific environmental requirements did not need to be considered until drilling began.Lets get real - brownlee pimp's our country and its resources to anyone and everyone. He doesn't care about the environment or maori concerns - they didn't even enter his head. He cares about money - for himself and his mates - and the country can just be exploited and desecrated willy nilly. No one is going to forget your role in selling our futures - brownlee, don't worry about that crudegerry.
