Poll finds low public support for Labour’s emissions trading scheme

by Health Unionist 11 July 2008 A poll published this week has found very low public support for Labour's emissions trading scheme. Some caveats need to be borne in mind. The poll was commissioned by NZIER, who are lobbying against the scheme. And the main finding was that most people know very little about it. However, it highlights that people don't like emissions trading – quite justifiably –because it will raise prices and erode living standards. It will also fail to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by anything like the required amount. We must clearly side with people and planet and reject emissions trading. NZIER media release here:
