Abstract: New Zealand’s policy on Climate Change? Doesn’t exist! All may be forgiven by this Journal’s printing date, but so far the Government’s record is pathetic. Given that the Kyoto Protocol is due to kick off on January 1st 2008, the delay has been astonishing. Exporters are now complaining that our tardiness is affecting our international image: how can we pose as “clean and green” without a clear policy on this flagship issue? How can we argue that “food miles” and “wood miles” shouldn’t penalise our exports, because we run an environmentally tidy ship?
