No surprise

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: Whatever the Labour Government decides on climate change, it never pleases the mob at Greenpeace.

Last month, when the Government announcement that it will spen $339 million researching technological advancements, including methane inhibitors for the ag sector, Greenpece was furious.

It's unhappy that the Government, rather than cut herd sizes, is spending hundreds of millions of dollars in the hope of reducing emissions in the sector.

So why has the Ardern Government done this?

Because New Zealand's farming sector continues to perform for the nation's economy while maintaining our world-leading, efficient dairy carbon footprint.
