Angry as usual

Written by  Milking It

The usual culprits are angry at hearing last week that the Government and the agri sector will work together to deal with greenhouse gas emissions.

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.

What ethics?

Your old mate just about choked on his bone when he read a media release from the multinational, tax dodging, perennially anti farming organisation Greenpeace calling on Feds to stop “kicking farmers”.

A fair shake?

OPINION: Media bias against farming isn’t new in this country, but the level of ignorance among journalists is off the charts these days.
