Commonsense At Last On Climate Change

The Hive has not always been enamoured with the views of National's Nick Smith on climate change. We were therefor delighted to finally get to look at a copy of the Otago Daily Times today and read a totally sensible think piece by Nick Smith on the subject.

As usual the ODT is trying to make a buck by requiring people to subscribe online to its most unique content so we can't provide a link.

But we can type our favourite quote:

Internationally, we need to stop kidding ourselves we are world leaders. We need to be frank that there is no solution without the involvement of the United States, China and India. The Bali road map is no more than an agreement to keep talking to try and find a successor to Kyoto. We also need to work closely with Australia in the development of our emissions trading system.
