More ETS meetings

Here are some final ETS meetings for the coming week.

My campaign to destroy the ETS started on 1 June and finished on 3 June. I wrote four letters and sent 2 emails. I got a response from Nick Smith that suggested the ETS wasn't a tax and it was the best thing since sliced bread.

Actually, sliced bread isn't that great, and the emission tax is worse. My $82 p/w tax cut due in October is reduced to about $20 p/w once GST, ETS and rates increases are taken into account. I guess $1,000 per annum isn't bad, but it could have been more than twice that if it wasn't for Nick's tax.

Anyhow, here are the meetings. The ETS is a fait accompli and Nick's review in 2011 will be nothing more than a self-congratulatory, backslapping exercise in self flagellation on how we're leading the world, but making average Kiwis poorer.

Learn about the back downs that have already resulted from the anti-ETS campaign and ACT's strategy going forward should it go ahead.

1 July might be a fait accompli but phase 2 and 3 aren't necessarily.

Keep fighting!! It's important.

but it hasn't got past the moderator yet.

Nick Smith's bizarre comment that the argument about the science of climate change was over.

I despair that we are being rail-roaded into a real stuff-up

You can either take a stand (no matter how modest) for what you think is right, or you can be a snarky little bitch.
