BRIDGET WILLIAMS BOOKS PRESS RELEASE
If climate change is the defining issue of our generation, and the emissions trading scheme (ETS) New Zealand’s central response, is it up to the job?
The Carbon Challenge provides a plain English guide to this question that cuts through what is kindly termed the ‘opacity’ of the ETS, while also delivering the detail for those that need to understand why it seems destined for fundamental reform.
That the ETS manages to achieve remarkably little in the way of emission reductions (they keep growing), is an immediate signal that all is not well.
