I thought it must have been April fools over at Homepaddock blog when Ele posted the ‘you can’t eat money’ saying. But no, it was on March 31. The funny thing is, she got it wrong, thought it was ‘you can’t eat dinner’ and she prefers it her way! You have to laugh because otherwise you’ll cry when realise this is how the Nats think.

Latest innovation on Team New ZEaland’s boat is a cafein point to give the guys an extra boost on the last run!
While as a nation we have some huge economic, environmental and social crises that past Governments have been determined to pass on to following generations, we do have some extremely capable young people who are more than equal to the challenges ahead. http://localbodies-bsprout.blogspot.co.nz/2013/04/easter-chickens-and-political-youth.html

My link posted above (and now below) explains our massive desertification:
It has been discovered that desertification only exists in areas that have wet and dry seasons, with consistently long stretches of no rain.
It was originally assumed that to help fight desertification you needed to get rid of the animals that eat the plants. It has now been discovered the opposite is true. You need large animal herds to graze the plants, poo on them, and then move on in a natural nomadic fashion from area to area..this cycle keeps the soils ready-to-go for new growth in the following wet season, and major progress has been made to reverse desertification with this “natures way” process.
Now watch the video – it’s good!

A paper on what sort of climate tax level we OUGHT to be seeing
Which if it were used, would make the idea of closing Tiwai comical.
What that added cost would do to the price of Al produced from coal based electricity needs calculation. I may have a go when I get off work.
Contagion Starts Small:
Its a good thing our Prime Minister “understands this stuff”
“In the longer-term powering up many different plants for new industries here with renewable energy makes more sense than being hostage to one company which imports bauxite from Australia to send elsewhere.” http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=10874985
At last Fran Sullivan makes some sense.
For that to happen though, National would need to put the money that they were prepared to use, to subsidise Rio-Tinto, into supporting NZ sustainable industry. Some-thing their irrational followers, devotees of the neo-liberal religion, would not let them do.
Money for wage rises for fat cats, subsidies to offshore corporates and to give away assets, fine. Money to support new NZ industry, no way!
Mr. Farrer has an interesting post on Kiwiblog regarding some marketing materials circulated by the NZ Green Party. Would someoe please go there and put him straight abouth the reality of the situation?
