Greenpeace last night took a UN climate change report as a mandate to call for the halving of the New Zealand dairy herd — a move that would cost the country approximately $8.3 billion in lost exports.
No limits to their ambitions for destroying our economy.
Also if NZ did halve our dairy herd, it would increase global greenhouse gas emissions. You see demand for dairy is global, and will not reduce if NZ produces less. Other countries would merely produce more, and as we are more efficient it would in fact lead to greater emissions.
