Closed petition Introduce a carbon tax
The government should introduce a tax on all commodities and activities that emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. For example, there should be a tax on flying by plane etc.
The government should do this to help the fight against climate change. As the price of carbon-emitting activities increase, the consumption of such products should decrease, which should cause more people to shift to renewable energy. This could greatly reduce the carbon footprint of the UK.
