You shouldnt be able to fly to Greece from London cheaper than a train to Leeds. Aviation fuel is exempt from tax yet reducing your air miles is the single most effective carbon reduction move many people in the west can make.Why is the obvious one Aviation fuel?
if we tax consumption and we tax equitably then a data tax would be a good way ahead. Carbon emissions from Internet usage accounts for roughly the same as aviation so we could tax data and device consumption as well as fossil fuel use. A tax equivalent to that levied of fuel levied on data so each mobile and broadband connection would be taxed on usage. All the info is available at the network providers all we would need is a billing system
