CLIMATE CHANGE TAXES ARE COMING, BUT DOES IT MATTER? THE OIL IS RUNNING OUT!
Thousands of British businesses will be liable for significant fines and charges under a new government “green tax” scheme. Those that do participate in the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) initiative by declaring their energy use will face charges for every ton of greenhouse gas they produce. Tim Yeo, says more radical steps are needed to tackle climate change. These payments are expected to average £38,000 a year for medium-sized firms, and could reach £100,000 for larger organisations.
Do they honestly, think that China, India or any other large country in the non-European world is going to bother with climate change. Don't be fucking stupid. I can see the point that we've, or more correctly the US have made all the pollution, well some of it, already. But, two wrongs don't make a right. So why handicap your companies by another tax. Simple, the politicians don't have enough money yet and once more, we, as they laughingly call us the electorate, are conned one more time. It makes fuck all difference, because we'll run out of oil before the climate has had the chance to change. here. That's what the politicians should be addressing, if they can take their hands out of other peoples' pockets long enough. Want a bet that some Government Minister is taken on at credit giant, EXPERIAN in two or three years, when Cameron and the coalition have no further use for them!
