Opponents of Ratification Wrong Again
The opponents of New Zealand
ratifying the Kyoto climate change protocol fear Australian
reluctance to sign might mean they face less cost and
thereby out perform us economically.
Not so says Environmental Defence Society climate spokesperson Garry Law.
"The Labor opposition there has said it will ratify. They could yet win before 2008.
"The Coalition, that did win, is committed to a policy of meeting the greenhouse gas emission target Australia agreed to at Kyoto, whether or not the Kyoto Protocol comes into force internationally.
"If they meet the target where is this cost they are saving? Delaying our ratification because of Australia has no credibility.
