Greenpeace is again engaging in its favourite pastime….highlighting the state of NZ rivers and how fertiliser used on dairy farms are turning the rivers into hell holes.
Greenpeace is labelling it “Government’s surprise backdown” on its commitment to put farming into the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)
It accuses the Government of buckling to lobbying pressure from the dairy industry and big agribusiness.
An ETS won’t work for NZ agriculture. Only collaboration between all stakeholders will take us forward, so last week’s announcement is a step in the right direction.
Grow up Greenpeace.
