Isaac Davidson at NZ Herald reports:
The final reading of a bill which amended the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) drew impassioned speeches from MPs, in particular Green Party climate change spokesman Kennedy Graham.
Dr Graham levelled mock criminal charges at the Prime Minister and Minister for Climate Change.
“I charge the leaders of this Government with the moral crime of ecocide. I trust that in due course that they stand accountable before the children of this world, the children of John Key, the grandchildren of Tim Groser and mine.”
He went further: “The leaders of this government … are committing us to purgatory and thence to hell. Purgatory is the next decade, and hell the decade after.”
What insane hysteria. Purgatory and hell?
China’s daily growth in greenhouse gas emissions is greater than the total emissions put out by New Zealand.
I actually think agriculture should start to come into the ETS, but Kennedy Graham does his cause no help at all with such hysterical blather.Tags: Climate Change, Greens, Kennedy Graham
