Bulletin 25/3/2017


National announces an Auckland light rail project in 30 years time – Labour and Greens say that’s far too slow.  James Shaw gets to talk economics, following yesterday’s joint budget announcement with Labour.

(!) Judith Collins (@JudithCollinsMP) makes a misleading tweet about greenhouse gas emissions, and the linked press release also has the same misleading headline – neglects to mention that the decline in greenhouse gas emissions is from the energy sector only, and reflects only year-to-year variability, not long-term trends.


Echo Chamber National:

On Auckland transport:


(!) Misleading omission of information.  This refers to greenhouse gas emissions from energy generation and use only, does not include agriculture, construction, and other industries.  Also, year-to-year variability may not reflect long term trends:
