    I’ll drink some champage to contribute to CO2 emissions. Have fun you wowsers and doomsayers.

    Santi – That’s just a stupid thing to say. Oh and I doubt you can afford champagne (note the correct spelling) given you’re probably unemployable. You should be honest and admit you’ll be drinking a bottle of chardon with a disprin in it. We won’t hold it against you bro.

    Probably through a straw too…

    That’s the funniest thing I’ve read all week. Santi, you just got owned.

    Robinsod, Chardon and Passion Pop are the Champagne of the masses, how elitist of you 😉

    Government Greenwash.

    So what else is new?

    Here’s a related question – should Teh Party call in and fast track the various wind-power project consents, given their intention to ban coal and gas-fired generation?

    TDS whether you’re a climate change denier or just blindly and rabidly anti-Labour how can sustainability be a bad thing?

    Maybe take 5 and have a think about it.

    Helen is going to take reusable shopping bags to the supermarket…I’m in awe. Is there no sacrifice that she won;t make for our country?

    Double Standard

    Don’t be at all surprised if they do just as they did with the thermal ban. That effectively said that the ETS is not going to be effective, so as soon as they see a danger to the thermal ban, they will introduce yet another regulation to remedy the “market failure”.

    insider are you denying climate change is market failure?

    Are you thick or what? Of course is good, BUT if it’s a voluntary act or approach to living, not because it’s imposed by the state.

    Live and let live.

    I’m just interested in whether Teh Party are prepared to play both sides of the game, instead of just waving a big stick around.

    Do you think they should fast track the new transmission up the waitako so that all the sustainable power from the windy spots can make it up to Auckland?

    Market failure may result from climate change, market failure is not what caused climate change. Climate is continually changing, it was always going to happen and the worst case is we have influenced it, best case is we have just applied our oh so powerful brains to something we know absolutely nothing concrete about and imagined ourselves as being soooo significant it must have been caused by us. Eitherway, it was always going to happen. The market is all but irrelevant in the context of climate change, the dinosaurs had a pretty hard time of it all as well but I don’t think industrialisation or stock market failures where to blame.

    Nice launch from the PM. Her coding skills are wicked awesome.
