STANZ Wired Newsletter #6 Spring 2021

Despite the lack of newsletters so far this year the STANZ Committee has been busy behind the scenes laying the foundations for the future success of the Society and these activities can be seen in the attached newsletter.

STANZ Wired Newsletter #5 – Summer 2020-2021

It goes without saying that this has been a rollercoaster of a year that has tested us all. Here at STANZ we have endeavoured to keep things ticking over as best we can to fight the good fight for greater safe use of technology. While it appears that there is not much happening to the general public in reality there is much work here behind the scenes and around the world
that is laying the foundations to help us achieve our goals and this is reflected in this extralong summer edition of our newsletter with plenty of info for (wired) holiday reading.

STANZ Submission on Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Strategy

STANZ Submission on Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Strategy

STANZ has identified that the CCC needs to take into account the fact that the mobile wireless digital economy is resource intensive and a high greenhouse emitting sector of the economy that is unsustainable for the climate.

STANZ Submission to Christchurch City Council Climate Change Plan – April 2021

STANZ in general agrees with the goals outlined in the Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Strategy 2021 for Christchurch. However, STANZ wants to make the central point that under Goal 3 and Programme 6 that the move away from resource intensive and high greenhouse emission industries needs to include digital and wireless technology which includes Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Cloud computing and wireless communications through the 4G and increasingly 5G systems cell phone transmitter technology, mobile smart phone use and the infrastructure and data centers required to run them (both locally and globally). Just when we need to be moving as a society to reduce greenhouse gas emissions this sector of the economy is massively increasing its requirements for energy outstripping the growth in renewable energy sources with it being reliant on increasing numbers of coal fired power stations in other countries e.g., China.

STANZ Submission to the NZ Climate Change Commission – March 2021

STANZ in general agrees with the Climate Change Commissions (CCC) overall goal that Aotearoa must focus on decarbonising and reducing emissions at the source (both locally and globally). Unfortunately, the CCC reports do not currently adequately consider the massive (and growing) increase in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by the digital economy through Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Cloud computing and wireless communications through the 4G and increasingly 5G systems, mobile smart phones and the infrastructure and data centers required to run them (both locally and globally).
