New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme (ETS) is more or less dead, according to a University of Canterbury (UC) forestry professor. New Zealand has allowed unrestricted imports of credits, including many hot air credits from eastern Europe, meaning New Zealand has become a dumping ground for worthless credits from elsewhere, Associate Professor Euan Mason said today.Well, since the whole thing is a fraud, you can't complain about other fraudsters trying to defraud you. (Admittedly it's fun for normal honest humans to watch con-men conning other con-men; but in this case the con is actually killing people.)
Professor Mason said large segments of the New Zealand community were in denial. Many people in the farming sector believe that anthropogenic climate change is not real and some say it is a hoax. The rest of the world is actually trying to solve the problem.Well, dear Professor, MAYBE THAT'S BECAUSE THE "FARMING SECTOR" HAS SOME FUCKING CONTACT WITH FUCKING REALITY. Here, Professor Fuckhead, is a graph of Wellington's temperatures since 1960 from the ever-reliable TuTiempo.net. Excel here. Let me explain this to you, Professor Psychopath. This is a graph of something called "temperature", which is the "warmness" of the air around Wellington, which purports to be in a location called "New Zealand." Top trace is maximum "temperature", bottom is minimum, center is mean. Do you notice something about this graph? Probably not, but I'll call it to your attention anyway. From 1960 to 2012, the overall trend is slightly DOWNWARD, not UPWARD. This means that Wellington, which purports to be in the same country that you unfortunately infest, has been experiencing a small COOLING, not any kind of WARMING. So those benighted "farming interests", who need to know about local climate because it affects things called "plants" that "grow" in the "ground", are observing this minor cooling trend. They are not observing the BURNING BURNING BURNING HUNK OF SATAN that appears in your bizarre little mathematical "models." This is why the farming interests are "denying" your grand glorious Pol Pot Utopia, you hopeless egregious psychopath.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
