Warning to NZ: Slow down on climate change

Warning to NZ: Slow down on climate change
New Zealand should be a "fast follower" and not a leader in the race to reduce greenhouse gases, says a report issued yesterday. The New Zealand Institute report recommends the country delay meeting its emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol to 2020, instead of 2012. This ‘Think Tank’ warns us that we will become uncompetitive, that we are too small to make a difference and that we will lose businesses overseas. Really David Skilling from the NZ Institute, and where exactly will these businesses escape global warming David? Australia where they are running out of water? How about Southern California where they have a fire front that can be seen from space? Perhaps the moon David, perhaps businesses will run screaming from NZ to the moon. It’s time business had a good hard kick in the arse when it comes to the realities of global warming, it is happening, we have breached tipping points in terms of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere and we have breached the tipping point so badly our environment can no longer suck up the amount of greenhouse gas we produce. As for being too small, we gave women the vote before any other country, NZ has blazed the trail for social justice in the past, this is no difference, let David and his NZ Institute mates leave for Australia, my bet is they will be back when the water runs out.
