Brown: taxation not the answer to tackling global warming
Chancellor says education and incentives best ways to change behaviour
Despite being heavily criticised for increasing the air passenger duty,
chancellor Gordon Brown has said that taxation is not the best way to tackle
Rather, he said, the best way to change people’s behaviour was through
education and incentives.
Brown set out his thinking in a major speech on the environment just months
before he is expected to take over from Tony Blair and a little over a week
before his annual budget.
