Why can’t we take an holistic approach and tax all Natural Resources based on the ecodamage they cause by their very use and consumption.
If this tax replaced all existing taxes to provide the carrot, I am sure we would get a fast response to the desperate need to reduce not only global warming but also all other environmental damage being caused by overuse and over consumption.
This along with Universal Basic Income and a Death tax would address an awful lot of issues simultaneously.
