Kyoto, Bali, etc. are international agreements that have in common the fact that the world is boycotted by a small number of countries.
The EU is the only supranational structure in the world able to show the way with environmental taxation, therefore the EU should implement taxation on fields like kerosene for planes traveling from, to or through Europe.
Same as happened with the REACH legislation, if the EU starts a trend the other countries will have to adapt which will bring a global change.
If the EU is serious about climate change we have to be the first to use instruments like supranational taxation.Author : EMI
