Creating Public Policy on an Absence of Facts

New Zealand farmers feed 40 million people and the IPCC was crystal clear in the Paris Agreement – do not take any climate mitigation action that “threatens food production”. Our farmers produce food more efficiently, both environmentally and economically than any other country. It makes a mockery to penalise them.

Taxing Methane

What is new is that the Coalition Government has decided to tax the Methane on its way around this natural, been-there-forever, cycle. It sounds more like a blatant tax grab than an honest attempt to deal with climate change.
