Emissions Trading on Baybuzz

Recently, Baybuzz blog featured a short piece I wrote explaining why the Green Party supports the Emissions Trading Scheme. Here’s an excerpt:

Climate change will not just impact on others; it will impact on us locally. MAF forecasts that agriculture in Hawkes Bay will suffer more drought, for example. A key messages to come out of the public meeting [with Sue Bradford in Hastings in August] was that the community itself must take the initiative and prepare itself, rather than just relying on an ETS or Government funding. It was pleasing to hear of many initiatives in Hawkes Bay doing just this: from Flaxmere’s community garden to the new commuter bus service.
