Sacrificing industry to ignorance
Both major NZ parties plan to throttle New Zealand industry with an anti-industrialist's wet dream: retention of the Resource Management Act, which makes it all but impossible to build anew for industry, and imposition of an Emissions Trading Scam, which will all but throttle existing industry.
At back of the flat-out insane Emissions Trading Scam is the flat-out wrong global warming scam.
With parts of the northern hemisphere now under several inches of unseasonable global warming (in other words, snow), Christopher Monckton's timely open letter to John McCain is just as much an open letter to every western politician who wishes to sacrifice industry to ignorance:
Sir, every one of the reasons that you have advanced for alarm and consequent panic action has been demonstrated to be hollow and without any scientific foundation or merit. Yet, if your proposal to close down three-fifths of the economy of the United States is to be justifiable, then not only the false scientific propositions but also the false policy propositions that you have advanced must be shown to be true. Here, then, are ten propositions, with each of which you appear to agree, each of which is actually false. All of these propositions must be proven true before any action is taken to tamper with the climate, still less the fatal, self-inflicted wounds that you would invite your nation to make to her economy...
