The problem with taxing water – Newsroom

As an academic and international consultant who has spent his life on water management and irrigation, and a proud New Zealander, I am horrified at the fundamental lack of understanding about water issues in our country.

I see emotion pitted against the science and I hold my aged head in my hands. I see mistruths spread by the environmental lobby, the media getting things factually wrong time and again, and it’s no wonder the public are so confused and the issue has become a political football.

This has to change if we are to protect our water for future generations.
