The politics of non-energy

Muriel Newman examines the government's energy and emissions trading strategies at her NZCPR site, concluding with energy professional Bryan Leyland that "instead of a sound energy strategy NZ is being driven by political imperatives." 

The Government’s energy strategy [says Muriel] is a dangerously political document which will not only seriously damage the New Zealand economy, but will cost families dearly.

As you might recall, I've voiced my own views on just how unsound that strategy and those "imperatives" are several times before. Several.

  1. Don't the government have a plan to increase the population (if not why do we have new subdivisions every where?) and if so have they figured our energy requirements?.
    Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing?
