Yet another tax to save the planet from global warming has been agreed. Anyone who travels by air will pay it according to this report. In practice all these taxes will achieve nothing other than to push up the cost of living for all of us and prevent the poorest from doing things at all. Air travel will emit just the same amount of CO2 as it did before (probably more, globally as those in Chine and India start to get richer) and global temperatures will warm or cool depending on various factors that man has absolutely no control over.
