EU to exempt private jets from climate change tax?


In its battle to stop man-made global warming, the European Union is planning a significant increase in aviation gas taxes that will undoubtedly increase prices for the average person flying on passenger jets.

There are a couple of exemptions, of course. Cargo planes will be exempt, because of the impact it will have on prices. But passenger planes carrying cargo will still have to pay.

But the proposed exemption that has caught everyone’s attention is the one exempting private jets from paying the man-made global warming gas tax.

You know the ones used by the world’s celebrities, millionaire and billionaires to fly one person to different locations around the world, arguably the most wasteful type of CO2 emissions.

If you really believed that CO2 was causing catastrophic global warming, why would you exempt the world’s elite from paying the tax?

Zero Hedge commented on one study that noted, “private-jet CO2 emissions in Europe rose by 31% between 2005 and 2019, with flights to popular destinations up markedly during summer holiday seasons.

Of course, the bigger question is if you really believed CO2 emissions are going to end civilization as we know it in less than ten years, why would you exempt the world’s largest CO2 emitter, Communist China, under the Paris greenhouse gas accord?

It’s obvious that the battle to lower CO2 emissions has never been about stopping climate change.

There seems to be another agenda afoot.
