What could New Zealand do to cut Greenhouse gas emissions.
Being realistic we are not going to cut our dairy herd, the drop in milk prices may make this self adjusting but I can’t see New Zealand farmers having a big future in broadacre arable farming.
Putting a heavier import tax on inefficient.vehicles would not be difficult and electric cars could be given some help. In the UK there is no tax or GST on electric cars which, considering the small numbers, is not an expensive exercise. The government could buy electric cars for its vehicle fleet which would send a strong message to the market and save money at the same time..
