Misguided interpretation of villain by Neil Henderson
I have read what he says, and watched Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”. I had a look at Aotearoa 350, read the IPCC Fourth Summary Report . . . and balanced it with reading the other side.
To see the other side yourselves, look at the links on www.climaterealists.org.nz and then make your decision on what to believe. Have the courage to admit you judged hastily on only half the evidence — I was also a global warming believer once.
I agree with Mr Hughes and Keisha Castle-Hughes that we need to protect and preserve our one and only planet Earth, but I believe they have a misguided interpretation of the ‘villain’.
We need to clean up the smog over our industrial cities, but this is not CO2. We need to ensure we use finite resources such as oil wisely and we need to find alternatives, but a vibrant, growing economy is far more fertile ground to grow these new technologies than one stagnating or even dying under the weight of an ETS.
The reason the Climate Realists Network launched their petition is to stop the Government signing our country away in Copenhagen.

We are a couple of sheep and beef farmers farming off the East Coast of the North Island of NZ. We believe in the neccessity of farming sustainably and making wise use of finite resources. We believe in protecting the environment. But we believe all decisions should be based on scientific fact, not mere conjecture. When the Kyoto agreement was signed we believed what we heard, and were global warming believers. But with the announcement of the ‘fart tax’ our suspicions were roused. Since then we have done extensive reading of both sides of the argument. We have to conclude that if global warming is being caused by man, the net effect is very small, and will not have any harmful effect on the planet.
