Rod Oram on Carbon Prices


Most of it seems a little confused and I can't say i'm a huge fan of the 'think global, act local', the biggest gains arise from small decisions higher up in the food chain i.e. ban incandescent light bulbs, mandate insulation and solar water heating in new homes etc
However, i can wholeheartedly endorse his last statement;
But all the kudos from putting the money into Landcare's regeneration projects would be lost when tourists get stuck in Auckland traffic behind a belching, badly tuned diesel vehicle.

When they learn we're the only OECD country without vehicle emission and fuel efficiency standards, they'd realise we're living a sham.
