Climate Change is the issue

It's interesting to see some National MP's talking openly about their true beliefs on climate change again. Back in November 2006, John Key was adamantly saying the government should do nothing, even proclaiming that climate change was a complete hoax. It wasn't until closer to the 2008 election, probably after some polling, that he changed his tune.

Despite the scientific evidence being settled, the National party is still doing nothing practical to mitigate climate change or acknowledge the danger it poses. While the President of the US of A is busy announcing a raft of initiatives to combat the effects of climate change and bolster their economy in the face of a clear and present danger, our very own Minister of Finance, Bill English, had this to say:
