OPINION: This old mutt is getting somewhat tired of multi-national, tax-dodging, fund-raising group Greenpeace always given front and centre mainstream media space to coment (i.e. bag) NZ agriculture.
Yes, that's what Greenpeace is claiming. The environment lobby, with a serial habit of blaming dairying for all the world's problems, wants the Government to put an end to intensive industrial dairying.
If you're wondering how your cows were responsible for the recent Gisborne floods, Greenpeace has this explanation: "New Zealand's dependence on synthetic nitrogen fertiliser and too many cows is cooking the climate, and that is leading to climate floods like the one now impacting the people of Gisborne."
