But if you looked into the soul of NZers, esp of our beloved leader, you would struggle to get up to 1%! Greed and corruption rule.

People, if you compare NZ to almost any other country - it is pure - trust me! Yes, not perfect - but there is nothing perfect on earth :) Enjoy it!

100% pure was run as an add campaign not as a statement of fact. It's about time the greenies and NZ media stopped using this add as a reason to beat up on us as a nation. why don't you ask those travelers planning on visiting NZ if they really believe that NZ is 100% pure. No person with 1/2 a brain would every say their country is 100% clean green or pure.

Thanks Campbell live for highlighting our false advertising to the world.
We may have some lovelly places to visit in godsown, but even the tourist industry is certainly not clean. Study the chemiclas DOC uses at their huts on the tracks- for starters...Thats just one example..
I have lived in the rural sector on a lifestyle block surrounded by larger scaled farming for over 30 yrs now. We have been chemical free- growing as much as we can, around us it is like a warfare at times--with the toxic cocktails used for so many reasons for the land or animal, they call it conventional farming. This is common place in rural NZ. The rural towns don't fair any better with ignornat people who still think they can use drains to wash down a list of chemicals called cleaning agents, paints & spray freely their gardens for insects & weeds not to mention fertilizers -without blicking an eyelid, all the runoff after heavy rain flows staight into our lakes & rivers.
I wait with interest your next instalement & hope some people may learn. But after all these yrs people still call me a greeny- tree hugger & laugh just for doing a natural thing!

No mention of soil erosion in the soil section. Pathetic.

Fantastic that you have the courage to report and broadcast this issue. Most media have paid mere lip-service and then sheid away Thank you, awesome job.

There are just two ways to be a clean country. Educated and responsible people or no people at all. If you would increase the NZ population by another 10 Million, this country would be a sinkhole.

Kyoto Prootcol was a polluters convention to help protect polluters right to pollute at the expense of the less polluting.NZ has emissions we are to held to tougher than Germany. Why? Because NZ cleaner and greener in carbon emissions than Germany, so we get penalised for being cleaner. When it comes to clean and green we need a quantive measure of parts per million etc, or tonnes of C02 per sq km. NZ has a low carbon footprint in emissions per sq km. Even with the biased emissions used, vs net emissions, NZ carbon emissions per sq km over 18x better/cleaner than Germanys.Even the emissions figures are incorrect. We should have net emissions, not just emissions. Why is our pre 1990 forrestry excluded, while out pre 1990 farming dairy etc included? Both are man made farming so neither should be excluded.We should use NZ growth rates not EU growth rates. NZ has growth rates almost 4x the EU growth rates due to NZ better climate, ie our trees grow faster and soak up more carbon than EU trees, yet we use EU growth rates.If we used net emissions, and NZ growth rates, NZ as a country, even with our Dairy is a net carbon soak. This fits with our clean/green image. Only those backers and supporters of pollution who hijacked Kyoto Protocol think otherwise.

Find an expert, ask them to pick a number between 1 and 10, call it science. Top quality reporting their John.

New Zealand being 100% pure is a lie and a fake claim. Perhaps it used to be purer but it's now maybe 50% pure in my view.
There is so much litter on our streets and most of that litter ends up in our oceans through the storm drains. It's pretty shameful really.
People need to stop lying to themselves and to the world about NZ being pure and clean and we all need to start cleaning up the mess.
