What struck me in the lead-up to our recent election was that the subject of climate change was not a ‘hot topic’. I wonder if this may have something to do with the fact that the downfall of the recent Labor government in Australia, under the leadership of Julia Gillard, may be connected directly to the introduction of a carbon tax which has since been repealed by the current Liberal government. It appears it was hugely unpopular with voters.
Hot topic? Maybe like a hot potato too hot to handle?
Where is the voice from the people of New Zealand ? Which camp are you in? What are your thoughts and ideas on the subject of climate change ?
Consider this quote:
A small change can make a big difference. You are the only one who can make our world a better place to inhabit. So, don’t be afraid to take a stand.
