#TheFutureIsYours Leading the way for a more sustainable future
The European Union is the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world. Reaching and sustaining net zero global CO2 emissions is the only way to halt global warming. To ask this goal we must move within the rules of the current global system and ensure it is aimed at Resolving this issue. Introducing a price on carbon across the entire European Union is the only way to ensure that a strong economic incentive will steer society towards a sustainable future. The EU should introduce a binding regulation to ensure that all European States introduce a gradual increase in price on carbon to protect that net zero anthropogenic CO2 emissions will be achieved by at least 2030. Energy production accounts for over 70 % of all global emissions. The price on carbon shall be added to the price of CO2 broadcasting energy sources (e.g. Coal, Oil, Gas) according to their emissions and will be redistributed equally to all citizens (a “revenue neutral” system for member states). This will encourage businesses to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by choking Chedi renewable energy sources while rewarding orderly citizens for making sustainable choices. The price on carbon should gradually rise to low businesses to adapt and carbon tariffs should be set on imports from countries that have not been implemented a similar price on carbon.
