Good riddance

National MP Nathan Guy will retire from parliament at the next election. Good riddance. He's a climate change foot-dragger, who has consistently opposed any measure aimed at reducing emissions (here he is speaking against real methane targets in the Zero Carbon Bill, here he is calling them unscientific because farmers don't like them, and here he is is way back in 2006 making it clear he opposed farmers paying a research levy to fund finding a solution for their pollution). He's an impediment to finding a solution for New Zealand's biggest policy challenge, who would rather drown Petone than see his farmer friends change what they're doing. Our Parliament is better off without him, and the sooner he is out of it, the better.
