NZ green econ­omy boom

The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

RE: “On NZ Clean En­ergy” (texts, 14/4).

New Zealand has had an Emis­sions Trad­ing Scheme op­er­at­ing for at least 10 years.

This has been sup­ported by both sides of pol­i­tics. Dur­ing this time their econ­omy has been boom­ing.

There are no in­di­ca­tions that point to any fu­ture changes in this re­spect, other than the nor­mal fluc­tu­a­tions.

As far as tree plant­ing goes, even one bil­lion trees wouldn’t solve our emis­sion prob­lems. Cov­er­ing the con­ti­nent with them might help. Alex Blair, Cairns
