It sounds boring and unnecessary for many who might be reading. At first glance, it seems as if it is just another tax to allow politicians to take your money just as it normally is. I do not know about you, but like many, I would like to keep the money I have the right to, for as long as possible. Just hear me out here.
Judging from the response I got for my last environmental blog post I know that you all care about the world your kids are to live in, you care about any kind and want it to survive for as long as possible. We all think with our pockets, whether we want to admit it or not. As the people we are, we will push for keeping the money that belongs in our pockets where it belongs.
If we really want to make a change we have to push for the fossil fuels to be taxed, making them, in turn, more expensive then they originally were thus leading to lower use of the old sources of energy because no one wants to put down additional money when it is not needed. Instead, people might actually turn towards energy that does not cause as much damage as fossil foils do.
Politicians should take a stand and forget the fact that people might be angry at first if the tax is set because whether they like it or not people are going to dislike them. Think about the future.
