Gas tax will not to apply to farmers, says Govt

Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News Comment
Gas tax will not to apply to farmers, says Govt
Farmers will avoid having to pay for their greenhouse gas emissions for several years yet under the Government's flagship climate change policies, set to be unveiled today. It is understood that dairy farmers, who contribute a large part of New Zealand's emissions through cow belching, will not be part of the new emissions trading scheme at all during the first Kyoto Protocol commitment period, from 2008 until 2012. Surprise, surprise, the blessed farmers don’t have to pay the full cost of the damage to our environment from their industry which is one of the countries largest greenhouse gas emitters. It’s time to get bloody hard on the farmers, and make them pay the full cost of their farting belching cattle, when will this country start taking global warming seriously?

The NZ enviroment is the worlds best and most enviromentally friendly place to produce dairy products (grass fed and no need for heated barns - mean a smaller carbon foot print than anywhere else). Each litre of milk produced here is a global reduction in carbon emissions compared to production in other places. The application of a NIMBYist tax on local dairy production would be detrimental to the enviroment and the government should be congratulated.

So any comment to make on the actual issue Hated? or do you just feel the need to chime in with an irrelevant and nonsensical statement on random threads from time to time?

You'll note that Bomber isn't replying to any of these comments (particularly unaha closp's), Why would that be?

Perhaps you should just sush and leave it to the people who know what they are talking about.

Lol! Seriously tho, Im sure that any who bought his album 'The Crusader' and heard the original version of 'Not Many' with the lyrics "Next time you come on down to North Cantaburyyyyy" would have known he is from south of the Bombays.

Anyway, weren't we talking about how farmers are polluting scum and how they should all be forced in to ecologically efficient farming collectives or forced off the land and into the cities where they are easier to control?

Hmmm Anon12.11 that idea sounds familiar......where have I heard that before?.........Ohh I know...70's.....somewhere in Asia..........Khymer something?

Well Bo bers good mate Keith Locke thinks that the Kymer Rouge were a lovely bunch of people, just a little confused as they slaughtered 1.5 million of their countrymen so maybe doing it in reverse here might work.

The more I hear from these Greens the happier I am that Labour keeps reaming them after each election.
Seriously not suitable for positions of responsibility.

Incoherent and semi literate...........yup can't be much clearer than that.

One law for all now is it?

Really wish you'd make up your mind Hated by toast. Some days its one law for colonial rugrats and one for everyone else , some days its not.

Bit confused me thinks.

You should lay off that P boy.

Legiox please tell me.

Is it only P issheads who go around pointing the finger and accusing people of being on P.

It seems ironic but I remeber you posting up a communist propeganda sheet and it showed how they ( the communist ) smeared their opposition and used a lot of lies and stuff.

........... it seems you read it over and over and over again .

and then you adopted it.

Calm people, please! As a farmer I was glad about the governments announcement re carbon tax etc. not only for the reason it will add more costs to my business that will be passed on to us all as consumers (yes us farmers have to buy groceries at the supermarket like everyone else!) The main reason I am pleased about it though is because no one really knows how much cows actualy fart so there is no accurate way of calculating our actual emmission liability. Also this extra time might let our 'expert scientists' figure out that nitrogen inhibitors & other such developing technology is just merely like putting a bandaid over the problem. Also for the record most farmers such as myself take great pride in looking after their land & animals in as a sustainable manner as possible. The dirty bastard farmers are generally the big corporate dairy farms like landcorp (owned by us taxpayers) etc. that are money driven rather than lifestyle driven. Also just remember farmers have to pay the extra emission taxes like everyone else just as soon as they are introduced in the form of fuel tax etc.
