Sticking your head in the sand

As expected, NZPundit responds to the "fart tax" by denying that global warming exists.

Meanwhile, Gary Taylor has an excellent opinion piece in the Herald: Belch tax lets farmers off far too lightly.

Update: Sorry, I'm obviously not up with fashion in the global-warming-denier camp. Rather than denying that it exists, they now deny that humans are responsible, or that we can do anything about it if we were. Piffle. They're still sticking their head in the sand, and the government should not allow itself to be disuaded from taxing emissions by a bunch of people who fail to accept reality.
