Labour is being challenged in court on the Emissions Trading Scheme. Mr Barry Walker is trying to prevent the government passing the ETS into law this year, because the evidence about global warming is so heavily disputed.
Good on him! We need an independant study into the science before emptying our wallets on this issue. The problem however is that Mr Walker is only taking Labour to court. Both Labour and National are proposing to put in place Emissions Trading Schemes. Even if Mr Walker is successful it will not prevent National putting one in place after the election like they are promising to do, although the case might make them pay more attention to the science.
The only way to prevent an ETS being put in place after the election is to ensure parties are in parliament that will oppose it and look into the science before spending more money. The only party promising to do this is The Family Party.
