The Top Ten Things Environmentalists Need to Learn

The top ten list is here

I am greatly sympathetic to this one:

"5. Taxation, price increases and caps on energy are inherently regressive and cause great damage."

When multi-millionaires like John Kerry suggest increasing gasoline taxes by 50 cents per gallon so that poor people will be forced to use less gasoline (while he continues to fly in private jets and be driven in large cars), I get angry.rant0000rant0000rant0000

What do you think of these 10 points? Are there any with which you disagree? Are there any you think are especially important?

In many ways, increasing the taxation on fuel is penalising the wealthy as they tend to use much more fuel than the poor. That said, a GST does have some advantages in that the wealthy cannot easily avoid it. No GST on basic commodities like bread and milk would assist all.
