The so called science of this Global Warming of 2 degrees is lies.In Taranaki 98% of our streams on dairy farms are fenced and the water clean .The court case of Michael Mann against Dr Tim Ball,Mann lost because he couldn`t sustain evidence for his hockey stick graph.
Trees according to the IPCC report are not TO INTERFERE WITH FOOD PRODUCTION .New Zealand has the lowest carbon foot print of any country in the world for livestock farming. Trees ruin streams as they make them too acidic when pines are grown and the native fish disappear.
I reject this legislation.

Planting more trees wont make a difference to our carbon footprint. It's the ocean which produces 71% of our oxygen and is the biggest carbon sink we have. Yet we do very little to keep it healthy.
More trees. Climbing global temperatures. Make the link people. They will burn..just like Australia and where will your carbon footprint be then? You are being manipulated to drive an income. Tell me. Where does all this carbon credit money go? Its filling greedy pockets and doing nothing for the environment. Greed. It's pure greed driven by those countries not even part of this. Until ALL COUNTRIES get on board what NZ is doing is nothing but a waste of time, money, and resources

Pine forests ruin the land for anything else. Good farmland should not be ruined beyond repair.

Trees should not be planted on good productive food producing land . And FOREIGNERS should NOT be allowed to buy nor given an incentive to buy NZ farm land for trees .
