non-whites, no matter how polluting they may
Mandi of Africa asks:
on earth has pollution got to do with race?
point exactly. Starting a new coal-fired power station every
week or fortnight will increase pollution for the whole planet, tho'
admittedly worst for the Chinese themselves. Their govt should
not be humoured in this hooligan behaviour, but the West has so lost
confidence in itself that it turns a blind eye, pretending that
'people of color' are more moral than themselves.

as their ageing populations increase
Which award could that headline win? It's true -
but at the price of being rather PinC. And I fear the RSNZ hack

PC worships non-whites, no matter how polluting they may be.
The mercury and many other contaminants emitted by dirty industries in
the Developing world do indeed amount to a global as well as local
cancer risk as suggested by the RSNZ hack. But PC ignores such

What the Ehrlichs have more truly called the
Never-to-be-developed world is consuming & producing more, but not

One of the few remaining virtues in NZ Green party policies is
opposition to 'free trade'. But the main parties, and the
bureaucracy, favour these betrayals of our own livelihoods &
