I understand that the Labour Govt is still wedded to the Carbon Trading system that we presently have. The carbon tax replacement was a Greens policy which has not been adopted.
To me the carbon tax is the fairest way to go. That way there are funds to help the low income deal with the impact. There is less opportunity for the sharks to game the system and treat it as a commodity market.

Returning to New Zealand issues Who and What is a Climate Change refugee?

To me a climate change refugee is a person or animal whose range (can no longer supply the necessities for life) has become uninhabitable.
This is worth a read, however we need to slow down the emissions more rapidly than we are now:

Is the emissions trading scheme still alive?
We should be pushing for a carbon tax that remits it’s revenue to the low income groups in our society.

I never realised the extent of our carbon footprint. But I read of Counties Manakau District Health Board being congratulated by Associate Health Minister Julie Ann Genter in their efforts to reduce their carbon emissions. by 21% since 2012 through a number of measures including the use of reusable cups,commuter ride share programmes,reduce anaesthetic gases, and better recycling.This has saved $500,000 in direct costs for CMDHB. It is estimated that New Zealands healthcare sector contributes between 3% and 8% of greenhouse gas emissions Hospitals eg use twice as much total energy per sq foot as traditional office space.

That Idiot Kim Jon Un is continually threatening to nuke the planet and destroy our climate for all time and yet there is no sign of any protesters to be seen anywhere.
The people/population of our planet have been brainwashed into believing that it is only the United States that is a threat.#1666965drlivingstone February 9, 2018 at 9:00 pm

What happened in the past is history and can not be changed
It is tomorrow and the future that is important so the despots should be challenged before all is destroyed.
Just look at what has happened in Syria because that weakling Obama could not make a decision. So Mr Putin stepped in and took control and now Assad has been restored to power
The west must stand up to evil.
There are nutters in the west known as Christians who believe in the end of time for planet earth and are prepared to facilitate any form of destruction,even by nuclear annihilation.
