New Zealand is scrapping a scheme to price gas emissions from livestock — squelching a so-called burp-and-fart tax initiated under the previous left-wing government led by now departed authoritarian Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, says Climate Change Dispatch.

New legislation will be introduced to parliament this month by the ruling conservative coalition to remove the agriculture sector from a new emissions pricing plan, thus responding to farmer pressure that the plan would make their business unprofitable.

“The government is committed to meeting our climate change obligations without shutting down Kiwi farms,” said Agriculture Minister Todd McClay.

“It doesn’t make sense to send jobs and production overseas, while less carbon-efficient countries produce the food the world needs.”

The New Zealand economy is driven by agriculture with around 10 million cattle and 25 million sheep roaming the nation’s pastures.

That has now been reversed and farmers welcomed the decision.
