Climate change: extended II

So what was behind the government's decision to extend the deadline for submissions to its climate change review at the last minute? According to CarbonNews, it was because several of New Zealand's biggest carbon polluters were in danger of not meeting the deadline and so grovelled for special treatment. In the interests of fairness, it was then extended for everybody.

Meanwhile, people who struggled to make the deadline have begun posting about their submissions. Morgue discusses his here, while Hot Topic's Gareth Renowden has posted his entire submission online [PDF]. You can read the highlights here.
