The latest data from the MFE shows that greenhouse gas emissions once again increased under Labour despite the rhetoric from the PM. It’s almost as if just talking about it doesn’t reduce emissions. A good Emissions Trading Scheme will.
So gross emissions rose 8,237 kt under Bolger and Shipley. Under Helen Clark they rose 7,239 kt. Under Key and English they dropped 323 kt. And so far under Ardern they are up 2,036 kt in just two years.
