Is The Pressure Beginning to Tell?

Nick Main, Chairman of Deloitte and Chair of the Labour Party friendly Business Council for Sustainable Development might be beginning to distance himself from his CEO, Peter Neilson. Queen Bee understands that Main admitted at yesterday's meeting of the NZ-US Council in Auckland that the treatment of agriculture in the Kyoto Protocol was a complete mess, and that there was a misfit caused by agriculture being caught by rules designed to capture heavy industry. As the New Zealand Government is proposing to include agriculture in its emissions trading regime from 2013 (the only country to include agriculture in such as scheme) is Main implicitly criticising this policy? If he is, is Main not risking a bashing from his CEO for being a climate change denier?
