I vote Conservative because they're fiscally conservative but, at heart, I'm a libertarian so I have little use for the socialists & communists of the other mainstream parties.
I see no benefit in sending tax dollars to another country for "carbon credits" as per the Kyoto Protocol. While the concept of reducing pollution is laudable, the lack of action on the part of the previous governments means we cannot possibly meet the specified goals.
I'm sure the socialists love Kyoto since the idea of sending other people's money overseas for no tangible gain meets one of their goals- to wit: redistribution of wealth (especially other people's wealth) but I would prefer to keep my earnings and governments have no business taking it from me for such dubious purposes.
So I would like to see a Green Plan which acknowledges we're not able to meet the timelines of Kyoto but presents realistic goals for pollution reduction. I would like to see further investment in research and development of alternative energy sources, specifically fuel cells and/or engines designed to use ethynol.
