Labour leader Jacinda Ardern has declared climate change the "nuclear free moment" of this generation. Launching the party's campaign in front of about 2000 party faithful, Ardern started by paying tribute to rugby great Sir Colin Meads, who died on Sunday, as a great New Zealander.

"New Zealand already has a plan for this. My question to Australia - how is the Australian government planning to help the people of the Pacific in this situation?" said Peni Hausia Havea.

"New Zealand, you see, has announced plans for a special humanitarian visa to help people displaced by climate change, which on current projections is going to upend our own backyard first," McMahon said in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Australia's Minister for International Development and the Pacific was not bothered by the suggestion New Zealand is doing better than Australia.

"If New Zealand is thinking ahead and way into the future, that's a matter for them," he told Q&A.

"Obviously in the future that would be a matter for future Australian governments to look at," he continued.

"I'd anticipate Australia would be part of something well into the future of that nature. But we would deal with it as it arose."

Jacinda Ardern was also credited with creating envious Aussies.

"[Her] disarming political charm and boldness has left many Australians gazing forlornly across the ditch and wondering 'what happened to us?'" wrote McMahon.

"Didn't we use to be good neighbours too?"
