Good News! Green Taxes on Autos and Half Empty Planes

Fantasy island story. Some day this will be a story in an American paper, but right now the only people concerned about global burning and doing something significant about it are British politicians. By significant, I mean taxing people who drive luxury cars that suck a lot of fuel.

We ought to raise most of our revenues with green taxes on transport and energy to force conservation, and stop taxing labor and income. Where is a progressive Democratic party in US to say Yo! se puede!

Meanwhile, in land far away, on an island that has seen what melting icecaps and vanishing Greenland ice shelf will do to the London landscape, we have people who are already doing better.

BBC has the story
