To John Key from Graham C 26 March 2010


Dear John,
I am a Helensville electorate voter and supporter of the National Government.  However I am becoming increasingly alarmed by the ETS legislation soon to come into effect.  Worldwide the ETS is a shambles.  France has backed off; we don’t know what Australia is going to do (originally we were going to align ourselves with Australia); there are huge question-marks around the AGW science; the scheme does not reduce emissions, it just transfers them from one country to another; the effect of the scheme on our economy is at best uncertain and most likely very harmful.  I urge you and your government to repeal the ETS legislation or at least delay its introduction until there is some certainty about what the rest of the world, and in particular Australia, are going to do.
Yours sincerely,
Graham C
