One Response to Tax pollution, not people

  1. I have just read the book “The Last Oil Shock”, and was particularly interested in the idea of tradeable energy quotas as a form of “carbon currency” in order to make people work in an economic reality that requires people (and companies) to reduce energy use, and when they are able to live below their energy ration, they can trade their surplus, and when they live beyond their ration, they have to buy new quotas. Do the LibDems have any view on this, and could this be a viable policy, in your view? For more information, please see
