Predictable results of socialist policy

Guess what the results of Labour’s new carbon-neutral policies to fight climate change have been to date? An extra 800 000 tonnes of carbon in our atmosphere.

New figures have come out showing that three millon trees have been cut down in the last 12 months which will not be replanted. This has had the effect of putting an extra 800 000 tonnes of carbon into our atmosphere.

What is so tragic about this is it was so predictable. Idiot/Savant at No Right Turn blames this on the market. Waht he ignores is that this year one third of trees felled in New Zealand were not to be replanted, compared with 2.5% traditionally. Although the market may play a role in this, probably a much bigger factor is the new $13 000 per hectre tax the tax-hungry Labour government has imposed on anyone who converts forrested land into agricultural land, with no carrots involved. The results were completely predictable: people owning forrests would deforset them as quickly as possible before the new tax came into effect. What should have been done was too give carrots for planting new trees and not cutting trees down.
