The European Union is seeking to implement an air carbon tax, which would require any airlines that use European airspace to purchase carbon emission permits. Do you approve of this new tax?

Why I personally do not approve:

It will only raise fares of all flights going into and coming from Europe.

The EU is not doing this for the environment, they are doing this to raise revenue for their monstrous governments.

This is just a money making scheme designed to tax people from other countries.
It has no chance of reducing carbon emissions.
I feel sad for anyone who can't see this for what it is.

My first thought was it is a good idea, but you make a good point.

Only if the tax revenue is put towards cleaner fuel research and implementation.

These types of taxes are nothing but scams!

Interesting...I thought it'd be good, but raising the prices of all flights related to Europe...maybe not such a good idea.

That's really not a way to combat pollution. It's a pretty stupid tax.

You do know we breath out CO2, right? So will they tax every person for breathing, or just the ones they don't agree with?

What would happen with the money? Is that specified in the plan? Reserving judgement until I know that.

Warning. More taxes. Why do we want to be like them? Just say no.

Turnabout is fair play if we do the same thing back to them to be fine with me.
