Green taxes 'too high'

Green taxes are far higher than is necessary to offset the cost of Britain's carbon emissions, a pressure group has claimed.

Households pay 19.6 billion a year too much in taxes on flights, fuel and their cars, the TaxPayers' Alliance (TPA) said.

The total burden of green taxes and charges was 24.2 billion in 2007/08 - even though the social cost of the UK's entire output of greenhouse gases was 4.6 billion, according to estimates from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The Government estimates the cost of greenhouse gas emissions as 16.3 billion - which would mean green taxes are still 7.9 billion too high, the TPA said.

Well, well, well, now that's something we didn't all know isn't it.....I don't think
Get this ragbag of a Government out now. I am fed up with their lies and threats and extortionate taxes.
