New Zealand will be amongst first to levy carbon tax

This is the best thing that New Zealand politicians have done since declaring the Nuclear-free zone. Kiwis are leading the way to a sustainable future. We will be one of the first countries in the world to levy a carbon tax. Carbon taxes are the most natural way to build sustainability directly into the economy by taxing a "bad" (pollution) rather than a "good" (income). Yet again New Zealand is showing huge vision in the global arena. Lets hope that the dinosaurs will follow.
