Wear it with pride, New Zealand

Carbon News ($) reports New Zealand is not using climate change policies to manage public health.

Public health is desirable. So it is very much a good thing that we have public health specialists who know what they are doing when it comes to public health how to deliver public health.

Making climate scientists and climate policy makers responsible for public health seems like a good way to get neither public health or lower emissions. The present lot are having enough trouble just with emissions.

I like living in a country that scores zero on bad policy ideas, in this case conflating the technical problem of reducing of greenhouse gas emissions with public health outcomes.

The government deserves kudos for scoring badly on a ludicrous yardstick for climate policy.
