Salisbury Greens support the introduction of a Carbon Tax

A Carbon Tax is a powerful tool to reduce the amount of fossil fuels that we are using. The oil, gas and coal industries will have to pay it, when they sell their products. As this will make fossil fuels for heating and electricity more expensive, the income from the Carbon Tax will be paid out to the general public and invested into climate friendly technologies and services. Experience from other countries shows that when the fossil fuel business becomes less profitable, individuals and companies start making different choices. As a consequence we produce less emissions and clean alternatives, such as renewable energies and climate friendly services, thrive.
