More on climate change opportunities

Brian Fallow in the Herald today.
This:
In the face of this it is easy to say that while New Zealand's per capita emissions might be high and growing, we are still only four-tenths of 1 per cent of the problem and the inertia of the big boys lets us off the hook.
is never an excuse. Your actions should be guided by what you think should be done. It's a decidedly craven attitude to let someone else's base instincts guide your behaviour. It might be the nuggest of truth you need to decide whether you're 'leading' or following.

"If everyone else was jumping off a bridge, would you?" is a parent cliche precisely 'cause it's true!

Oh, and by the way - 0.4% of the emmissions from 0.06% of the world's population is about a 7-fold more than our fair share...
