The rank hypocrisy of the Green Taliban

As news broke yesterday, fuelled by uninformed idiocy from the SST, and Lucy Craymer and Charles Anderson running a hate campaign against the New Zealand agriculture sector the Green Taliban went on attack issuing statements about ‘chemicals’.

In a 2008 interview with Gordon Campbell – check out Russel Norman’s last answer:

Campbell: So from what you’re saying, if the Greens are in government after the next election, it will be asking farmers to pay the full costs of its emissions much sooner ?

Norman: Yeah
and its actually in a good position to reduce its emissions. The technology already exists. Its just nuts. They’re half of our emissions, and we’re saying the sector doesn’t have to do anything.

Campbell:Excuse me, but the technology to reduce methane emissions doesn’t exist at the moment.

Norman: The technology to reduce nitrous oxide emissions exists at the moment, with nitrification inhibitors.

More on Slowly Sinking Tabloid and their crap reporting

The tip line has been running hot since the post earlier about Lucy Craymer and Charles Anderson running a hate campaign against the New Zealand agriculture sector.

Food Industry Asia has now sent a broadcast email with a link to my post slamming the irresponsible reporting by Lucy Craymer and the repeating by Fairfax’s Charles Anderson,

According to the latest media reports in China “the New Zealand ‘poisoning threat’ is threatening to jeopardize the Chinese New Year celebrations across Asia because of the potential contamination of thousands of tons of bakery products may be at risk”.

MPI issued a media release yesterday assuring all consumers that all New Zealand dairy products are safe even providing a Chinese translation.

Talk about rank hyprocisy.

The Green Taliban’s Steffan Browning couldn’t help but put the boot into Fonterra while seeking some grand agrarian socialism for the farming sector. By his measure, only then will New Zealand clean green marketing be achievable.  Read more »

Calling the Slowly Sinking Tabloid out for crap reporting

The alarming lead headline and story in today’s SST is nothing but a media beat-up. And who has started this beat-up and “froth”… one Lucy Craymer and Charles Anderson.

Let’s take a real look at the issue.

Thanks to Lucy Craymer’s scaremongering of the worst kind, she has placed New Zealand’s global reputation at risk. Lucy is the stringer for the Dow Jones Newswires and the Wall Street Journal in Wellington.

Here’s a picture of her for the thousands of farmers who now have their livelihoods at risk and for the hundreds of thousands of Kiwis that have employment thanks to New Zealand’s agriculture sector.
