New Zealand Climate Science Coalition agri- culture spokesman Doug Edmeades will speak at an Orewa Rotary Club dinner on November 9. Dr Edmeades will explain his anxieties about a dark shrouded hand'' which he says is threatening scientific truths and confusing Kiwis. Dr Smith is mislead- ing the public in an attempt to convince them that the recently introduced Emissions Trading Scheme is good for them,'' he says. Dr Edmeades de- nounces information given by Dr Smith in a promotional pamphlet and a series of talks. One of the key points he contests is the official line that global tempera- tures are being driven up by increasing carbon dioxide. That is grossly mis- leading for a number of very important reasons. For instance, clear evidence from ice-core studies shows that changes in carbon diox- ide concentrations follow changes in temperature by about 600 to 800 years. Carbon dioxide does not drive temperature. It is the other way around. The Earth has been through many periods of warming and cooling long before humans arrived, before agricul- ture was intensified and before fossil fuels were developed. Global temperatures since the last glaciation, about 10,000 years ago, have sometimes been higher than at present,'' Dr Edmeades says. Even the Intergovern- mental Panel on Climate Change accepts that the warming which occurred from the end of the Little Ice Age -- about the mid 1850s -- to about 1940 was not caused by carbon dioxide. The sun could be the cause.'' Members of the public are welcome to the Rotary club dinner on November 9. Tickets cost $23.

Farmers' outcry leads to smaller district plan area West Coast policy area:A shadow of the original proposal sees rezoning for environmental protection in the west. By DELWYN DICKEY A farmers' outcry in March has led to the Rodney District Council changing its West Coast District Plan priorities. Farmers were out- raged about a proposed zoning change that would seek greater pro- tection for western rural areas and out- standing coastal land- scapes. The council originally proposed new rules for a West Coast Policy Area covering the South Head Peninsula and much of Rodney's west coast. But farmers, horticul- turists and foresters raised concerns that restrictions might see them unable to do some farm activities like fenc- ing without a resource consent. The adopted West Coast Policy Area is consistent with Signifi- cant Landscape Sensi- tivity Quality areas identified in the Auck- land Regional Policy Statement. Within the revised area, controls on build- ings have been altered to permit the develop- ment of farm accessory buildings that are 50 square metres or less. The rules relating to fencing, artificial shel- terbelts and stockyards have also been clarified, making it clear these are also permitted.
