Marsden B will contribute to Kyoto deficit

In response to yesterday's initial resource consent for Mighty River Power to recommission Marsden B, the moth-balled coal-fire power station in Whangarei, the Greens have made a press release warning that Marsden B will make it even harder for New Zealand to maintain a positive balance under the Kyoto protocol. They point out that the environmental cost of Marsden B was not considered in the resource consent process and that other greener alternatives exist. Why on Earth do the commissioners think refurbishing a dirty out-dated coal-fired power station is a good idea?
