Reasoning
With the world’s finite resources of oil rapidly being depleted, solutions are being sought to extend the lifetime of available oil. One idea being proposed is the use of carbon credits. The Environmental Audit Committee considers such a scheme to be more effective than imposing taxes for excessive carbon emission. Taxes, such as a petrol tax, would relatively affect poor people more since everybody (both rich and poor) would pay the same amount. The carbon credit system, on the other hand, is fairer and would engage the population in the fight against climate change. Under the scheme, companies would be given an annual limit for the amount of fuel and energy they use. If they exceeded that limit, then they could purchase credits from other companies who have used less than their quota. This scheme, also called ‘carbon trading’ is likely to be unpopular with the public and the government has decided not to go ahead with it for the moment.
