But they are partly right: the hardest truth about climate change is that it can\’t be stopped unless the consequences are shared more fairly. The only way to do that is to give everyone the same quota of carbon to spend, whether on petrol, flying or heating. Are we ready for that kind of fairness?
No, we\’re not ready for that kind of "fairness". Because it\’s insane.
We know what we need to do to "battle climate change". We need to impose a Pigou Tax on emissions. And that\’s it, that\’s all we need to do. And as I\’ve said repeatedly, we already pay, even if not in quite the right places, the appropriate level of taxes.
We in the UK have already "battled" and beaten climate change.
