First we owe a Billion, then 1/2 a Billion now someone owes us 1/4 Billion
Who "calculates" this stuff, it all seems pretty vague.

It's a load of bollocks because you don't understand it? You're not really a thinker are you...

There ya go. Bit more global warming=more drought=less farting agriculture=less food=more people dying from starvation=less people=reduction in carbon emissions.

Beauty.

The larger change between the reports was new data on harvesting expectations of immature forests. This data is just one output of a five year study into the carbon stored in NZ's forests ("LUCAS").

Facts before rhetoric please.

How much real money does all that cost to compile..
I understand the principle, but there are too many variances/variables, my prediction is that most countries will just fudge it to show a credit

Yeah. Too complex to bother with eh? If something's hard, just give up.

:lol: :lol:

I recall the ramblings of a geography student back in the my days at uni, carbon this carbon that blah blah blah, some VERY questionable science coming out of his mouth. Hopefully not representative the people working in this area... he had a pretty weak understanding of anything and made up for it with sheer volume

I suggest you read further if you're actually interested in the topic, and not just happy to rely on 'the ramblings of a geography student" at uni.

Just like you to smudge the context. This thread didn't start as a vehicle for you to show your apathy, ignorance and arguments based on nutty preconceptions.

No need to get so defensive buddy. I haven't formed my opinion of the subject from the 'ramblings of a geography student', as thats what they were. Most of my opinion on this is formed by the typical gravy train approach to the science here, people are pulled into whatever the hot topic is at the moment, and where the money is. There must be some good science in the area, however sorting the chaff from what is useful is difficult.

Maybe if I can find the time to read up on it, I might be able to become more enlightened on the subject. However from what I have read in the past, there were far to many sweeping simplifications at work for me to be comfortable with it.

Infact I would rather see some of the funding for this work directed towards areas of research that can be of benefit to NZ, we have far to many other problems in this country that are struggling for money, and can make a REAL difference to the lives of everyday kiwis. Lets face it, the impact of reducing emissions in this tiny little country will have diddly squat effect on the situation.
