… surely the Chinese block travelling thousands of kilometres to market whilst remaining frozen also increases its total emissions
Yes, of course. But as David keeps re-iterating in his comments, the details of the ice-block are irrelevant. The ice-block is merely an example, to show how taxing carbon for goods manufactured in NZ will send the wrong price signal to the market, so it would favour the worse outcome for the world.
Edit: I'd just like to re-assure you, David, that at least one person out here understands what you did, and is pleased to have been educated on why taxing carbon is a tricky problem.
How can a so-called newspaper get its “facts” so blatantly wrong :
BP and Caltex continue to offer supermarket docket discounts through Progressive Enterprises,…
It’s Z and Gull at the moment, but Z only until the end of the month, which, bizarrely, is what the rest of the article is about.

Pfft, spell-checkers, who needs 'em when you can stuff up grammar so easily.
The pinged drivers should start suing Uber. Uber promised to "stand by them 100%" but have not. That's a breach of contract right there.
To get an idea of the Norwegian sense of humour I recommend watching the "Made in Mosjøen" web series.
With the Saudi disdain for Human Rights, and Uber's disdain for law, it looks like there is some synergy there for creating Evil MegaCorp Inc.
Does this mean that the unlicensed Christchurch Uber drivers will avoid new Uber app users (in case they are police tar-babies) ?
I see you have the support of your family...
Great to hear from you again David. Looking forward to your having more time available to bless us with some more of your writing.
Wrt Uber's low pricing, I was wondering, with them being an American Co, do they expect the drivers to be picking up tips with each trip ?
