The Greens have decided to back the government’s emissions trading scheme saying in a press release that it’s a start but there’s more to do:
We reported on Thursday that we had achieved virtually nothing in two areas – agriculture, and protection of important biodiversity from pine plantings. We have now made some progress on both, though it is not all we would like.
Meanwhile National’s again trying to have it both ways by claiming that the ETS is a ‘rushed response’ to climate change that carries high economic risks (unlike borrowing to fund tax cuts).
So what’s *your* policy National?
Not telling, it’s a secret.
