you dont like the name carbon tax, then call it traveller tax. Can or cannot?

China USA jealous b ...

You can call it "happy fairy tax" or "flowers and roses tax" and it's still going to be a burden and a obstacle to the healthy growth of a fundamental industry. Europe doesn't have much to lose..they like going down the mountain. I think they're masochists, lolololol. We should combat what we perceive as climate change in our specific way, on our own terms. That's something U.S.A, Russia, China and Japan can all agree on. Outgrowing the problem through sheer innovation and healthy business practices. Say no to taxes, say yes to innovation. That's the simple way of putting it. Just like China's already dominating the solar industry. There's no rush. Just hysteria. I think you need to take Business 101. I'm a economics major. I know what I'm talking about.....

China and U.S.A fervently agreeing on something. That tells you all you need to know about this tax.



It's negatives far outweigh it's positives. It's not that serious but these misguided efforts should be shut down and opposed as soon as they touch paper.

Too early to know. The potential for international retaliation and the start of a trade war isolating the EU is now a step further to reality and the EU needs to drop its local playground bully tactics and its arrogance in assuming it can apply a tax unilaterally on airlines based in sovereign states which operate in a global industry.

Carbon tax = money making scam. The EU bastards should find a better solution.

The EU should just impose the tax on passengers entering and leaving the EU an leave the airlines out of it; the passengers tickets show where they are coming from or going to so calculating mileage is simple and in the end it is the the passengers who pay anyway. It is ridiculous to be charging airlines for landing to pick up or drop off a few travelers; many inter continental flights land only to refuel.
What's on your mind...
