Sci­ence is ques­tioned, blame laid

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

A cou­ple of years ago our gro­cery bill was less than $100 per week. To­day it is well over that fig­ure, and we are no longer buy­ing any ‘‘small lux­ury’’ items. Four years ago our power bill was about $90 per month. To­day it is close to $300 per month and we are economis­ing on heat­ing and other power us­age. Our mod­est gaso­line bill has also in­creased and the full ef­fect of the Emis­sions Trad­ing Scheme has not yet to hit us.

This Emis­sions Tax scam is an un­war­ranted, un­nec­es­sary, bur­den based on very ques­tion­able ‘‘sci­ence’’ and is hurt­ing all New Zealan­ders with more im­pact to come.

Per­haps it is time for our prime min­is­ter and ev­ery politician who voted for the Emis­sions Trad­ing Scheme to look at the re­sults of the lat­est elec­tion in the USA where a dis­il­lu­sioned and an­gry elec­torate rub­bished a once pop­u­lar govern­ment be­cause it failed them. It could and should hap­pen here.
