You might be wondering why we chose to write about Greenland and New Zealand. Well, first, we brainstormed. We searched up pictures of interesting places. We came across an article that showed us fairytale-like places. The best ones were Greenland and New Zealand, and from that, this amazing article was born.
The capital of New Zealand is Wellington
This is the history of the name “New Zealand”: Abel Tasman and his crew sailed to the islands in 1642. He called it Staten Landt, after the States General of the Netherlands. In 1645, Dutch cartographers changed the name to “Nova Zeelandia” (Latin) from “Nieuw Zeeland”, after the Dutch province of Zeeland. Then, the name was englished (a synonym for “anglicised”) to “New Zealand” by British captain James Cook more than 100 years after Abel Tasman originally traveled there.

Welcome back to the Giannini Politics Update. Today we will be discussing the passage of a renewable energy bill in New Mexico.
Recently the New Mexico House of Representatives passed The Energy Transition Act on March 11th, 2019, forwarding the carbon-free electricity bill to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. The Governor has endorsed the ETA and has supported the share of renewable energy a multitude of times. Once signed, the legislature will ensure the state to attain zero-carbon electricity from public utilities by 2045. The bill also ensures temporary renewable energy targets of 50 percent by 2030 and 80 percent by 2040. California, as well as Washington D.C. and Hawaii have already committed to eradicate carbon emissions from their grids.
