Fitzsimons: If Barack Obama comes to Copenhagen saying ‘yes we can do much more’ will the Prime Minister say ‘no we can’t, but can I still have a photo-op?’

    “saying ‘yes we can do much more”

    He is very good at ‘saying’ but not so good on ‘delivering’.
    The gloss is disappearing from obama’s turd fast

    considering our targets are higher than Americas, that would be fine.

    Who actually listens to the “green” Party anyway? They seem to get a disproportionally large amount of press for their party size.

      “Who actually listens to the “green’ Party anyway? They seem to get a disproportionally large amount of press for their party size.”

      Unlike Act, eh? At least The Greens are getting press coverage for their policies, not for their hypocrisy.

      Considering everyone needs to pull their weight no it is not. Also Key wants to lower those proposed targets and they come conditional with things like not having to pay back Carbon credits if we cut down forests. He wants to create a target whereby we get to actually increase emissions and cancel it out with intensive forestry…if he gets everything he wanted we might as well not have a target.

      I am hoping Obama will now increase his targets considering he now doesn’t have to go through the senate which is typically what holds back US leaders. I have serious questions about his character now though given the increase in Afghanistan troops, he may prove to be just as bad as the last one.

    Did I here this in reply to JF ?
    The honorable Nick Smith
    Mr speaker on behalf of the PM .NZ position on having a climate change minister with only a 10% of a functioning brain makes it a challenge for us to reduce our emissions Of those countries many in th OECD and the developing world have ministers with brains with much higher functioning capacities
