Another economy has introduced a tax on flights - with the French government launching an 'eco tax' for air fares. It's similar to the Air Passenger Duty in the UK and the revenue raised seems to be being hypothecated for investment in cleaner forms of transport.

I am glad to see that big organizations are taking efforts to help the environment. In the era we live in, post industrialization, the environment is suffering and is in desperate need for help. Transportation is a major producer of green house gases that lead to climate change. Placing a tax on this is a way to repair some of the harm the business is creating.

EN personal este publiacion me parece muy interesante, por que como en la publicacion se plantea debmos cuidar el ambiente, siento que el tema mas destacado de este post el el cuidado del ambiente y el pago del impuesto si bien es un aumento es mejor para todos ya que sera atractiva por el cuidado del planeta, el publico a quien va dirigo es todo a que qur viaja y en general a todas las personas para que lo veamos como ejemplo, no tan solo es el aumento dle impuesto es el cuidado dle medio ambiente, y por eso es un tema que vale la pena leerlo e investigar más.
