SkyCity to put climate change guides in each of its Auckland hotel rooms

SkyCity has decided to put a copy of a globally celebrated guide to reversing climate change in each of its hotel rooms.

Copies of Drawdown, a New York Times bestselling book by US science journalist, Paul Hawken, will begin appearing in SkyCity’s Auckland hotel rooms within the next few months. 

“The decision is in line with our commitment to go carbon neutral in New Zealand in September”, a SkyCity spokesperson told Newshub.

The book discusses 100 things humans can do to help stop and reverse the effects of climate change.

SkyCity chief executive Graeme Stephens discussed the move at Wednesday’s first anniversary of the Climate Leader’s Coalition. 

Although referring to the book as the “new Gideons’ Bible” at the event, Stephens noted that the implementation of the book does not mean Gideons’ Bibles will be removed from SkyCity’s Auckland accommodation.

The presence of the book is SkyCity’s attempt to raise awareness among its clients of the importance of contributing to the reversal of climate change.

“We were looking for an option that explained how we can collectively make a positive change,” says the spokesperson.

Drawdown focuses on the ways we all can halt and reverse climate change, written in a way that everyone understands, that doesn’t have to be read from cover to cover.”

At the anniversary event Stephens confirmed he had read the book and wanted others to know there is hope for climate change reversal if everyone does their bit.

“We want to show our customers that there is hope and offer practical solutions to overcoming climate change,” says the spokesperson.

In early June, SkyCity showcased their dedication to climate change action by announcing their first low carbon menu. Developed in partnership with Enviro-Mark Solutions, the menu is offered at the fine-dining establishment, The Sugar Club.

The guide will be replaced with updated versions as they become available.

Why do these big corporates buy into this climate change bullshit. Is it that their customers have asked for it? I doubt it. Just virtue signalling and pissing off a growing proportion of the population.

Can I presume their low carbon menu doesn’t have char grilled stuff?

  1. Well, of course, Sky city is founded on gambling which in itself is a deceit so this would be in line with their morals and philosophy. Won’t ever go there.

  2. 21st century flat-earthers.
    No concept of the vastness of the universe and human insignificance in it.

  3. That’s true. The Flat Earth Society’s position is on human induced climate catastrophe.

    It was another one of Obama’s lies to misrepresent their views. And the fake news outlets let him get away with it.

    Thank goodness for that, shall we look forward to the Koran being added too, the Holy Trinity?

    • Climate change is the new religion.
      Is a hotel is for enjoyment and a break from life’s realities not a place you want to be held accountable.

  6. As for carbon neutral for dining; not only would it exclude anything char grilled it would exclude most things. Mmm lots of water a variety of salts. Appetising!

  7. Or maybe we should all rent a room, have a week long YSB camp-out and write “BULLSHIT” across all of the pages of their climate change religious text.

  8. I heard the CE of SkyCity on Magic Talk. What a muppet!

    He was skiting about having gone “Carbon Neutral”. Which means he does exactly the same as the Green MP hypocrites – he just pays money to a tree planting company and can then preen full of virtue-signalling sanctimony.

    I’m just waiting for the first audit of one of these carbon sink companies to show how seriously dodgy the practice is – it’ll end up like recycling when it first happened (before we found out that all the recycling was either lying in ginormous big waste piles because there was no technology to do the recycling – or that the recycling created massive carbon footprints because it all had to shopped off to China to be processed).

    It’s just like a religion. Those church going pricks who spent 6 days a week being absolute wankers and then they turn up to church leave a tenner in the collection tray and wank on about being a Christian as if they’ve bought off their shitty behaviour during the week.

    Fly all over the world, polluting like a rabid mother-fucker? But it’s OK I paid my penance therefore I can patronise you with my false religion of Climate Change.
