National shame

They've pulled out of Kyoto.
That's shameful.
Moana Mackey describes National's disgraceful action best:

"“This is a day of shame for New Zealand, our reputation as a good international citizen has taken a massive hit. To pull out of Kyoto the same day that Australia committed is humiliating. Australia’s position used to be essential to Government policy when it suited National. But now that Australia is tackling the critical issue of climate change, National is silent. National doesn’t take climate change seriously. It has gutted the emissions trading scheme and has now withdrawn from Kyoto commitments."

Hoooooooooooooooray!!!!!! Now we can focus our efforts on logical progress rather than taxing the public without benefit. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. You have made my day if not my weekend!

At last a government has seen sense on the global fraud that is climate change.

I aim to please, Anonymous. I have to say though, that you can't be a close-follower of environmental politics if you hadn't heard this news before I posted on it. Judging by your reaction, I see that's indeed true.

Once we realize that imperfect understanding is the human condition there is no shame in being wrong, only in failing to correct our mistakes. See the link below for more info.
