Abstract: The topic I have chosen for this Last word is the latest chapter in the ‘Iliad of woe’ that is the Emissions Trading Scheme. Ironic because I doubt anyone thinks the He Waka Eka Noa (HWEN) is the last ever ‘consultation’ on climate-related regulation or the 50% of emissions attributable to ruminate agriculture. How many more iterations, additions and back-flips will be promulgated before the reality is faced that the true cost of New Zealand’s climate commitment is greater than an annual subscription to Greenpeace and take-out coffee in a ‘keep cup’?
