We're back to farming subsidies again ...

"The Government never foresaw the land-use forces they were unleashing with the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)....
    "The bottom line is that [so-called] carbon forestry is now far more profitable than sheep and beef farming on nearly all classes of land. We are indeed on the cusp of the greatest rural land-use changes that New Zealand has seen in the last 100 years."
           ~ Keith Woodford, who says 'The ETS is both a gold mine and a minefield'

Thanks to a few abusers I am regularly moderate comments.
I welcome thoughtful disagreement. I will delete comments with insulting or abusive language, unless they're entertaining. I will also delete totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. I am much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
