Climate Change Minister James Shaw joins Kathryn to discuss the government's plan to combat climate change.

Under the proposal, methane will be treated differently to other greenhouse gases, in response to push back from the agricultural industry.

It has also set a new emissions reduction target for all greenhouse gases, except methane, to net zero by 2050, in line with New Zealand's commitments under the Paris Agreement.
