The UK public is willing to make more personal sacrifices to protect the
environment including accepting new taxes on goods and services that damage the
environment, a Guardian/ICM poll has revealed.
Two thirds of those polled said they approved of a green tax to discourage
behaviour that harms the environment, while a third said they would not accept
the extra duties.
Eight percent of those polled said they would be willing to spend more than
£1,000 to make their homes more environmentally friendly, 32% said they would
spend £100, while just 16% said they refused to pay any extra money.
Recently, the prime minister said he believed no country would be willing to
make economic sacrifices to protect the environment.
