Rodney Hide on National and ACT’s select committee into the ETS:
“I am especially pleased to see that the issue of the scientific and trade implications will be considered alongside the impacts on the economy.
“There is definitely not a monolithic view on the fact of human induced climate change and I welcome this government’s willingness to hear from scientists and others who are sceptics. I have to say I am one and it is appalling that the previous government accepted human induced climate change as a new religion with former US vice- president Al Gore as its prophet.”
Hear that? It’s the sound of our international credibility going down the gurgler.
