not sure how to react to reports like this. Of course this fascist
government is fiddling while the planet burns. New Zealand is
punching above its weight when it comes to destroying the planet.
of course things have gone far beyond whether the government is
cheating of the emissions trading scheme. The die is set, the horse
has bolted and no ETS, or even carbon tax is going to help now.It is
beyond too late.
am far from being against positive action and perhaps the most
positive action is to tell the TRUTH and prepare an ignorant
population for climate catastrophe.
government lies,lies and...lies.
Bradbury of the Daily Blog is one of the very few in this country who
plays his role in telling truth to power.
Radio NZ is an important part of the problem and has NEVER had anything but bullshit to bring to the table.

Blistering temperatures and rainfall over Greenland have jump-started the summer melt season weeks early. On Monday, a stunning 12 percent of Greenland’s massive ice sheet was melting — “smashing by a month the previous records of more than 10 percent of the ice sheet melting,” according to the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
DMI scientists were “at first incredulous.” One DMI climate scientist said, “We had to check that our models were still working properly.” But in fact, temperatures over parts of Greenland this month have been measured as high as 17.8°C — a scorching 64°F.
“Even weather stations quite high up on the ice sheet observed very high temperatures on Monday,” explained Robert Fausto of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). At one “site at 1840 meters [1.1 miles] above sea level, we observed a maximum temperature of 3.1°C [37.6°F]. This would be a warm day in July, never mind April.”
