Climate Change And The Shipping Industry

Michael Richardson, was formerly the Asian Editor of the International Herald Tribune. He is now researching at a Singapore think tank, with a real focus on climate change and energy security. He visited New Zealand late last year and spoke at a seminar organised by the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs. In today's NZ Herald he is looking at the impact that inclusion of international shipping in the Kyoto process will have for that industry. This is a key issue for New Zealand and all policy makers should read this article. If we get this wrong, it could impact very negatively on our international competitiveness.
