First tax people by selling Carbon Credits and taxes for Carbon output, then sue their pants off.
From the Telegraph:
Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.
The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.
But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the “right to a healthy environment”.
The innovative idea is being presented to an audience of politicians, scientists and public figures for the first time at a symposium at the British Library.
Innovative is right. And with all the doubt recently in the whole Global Warming thing, they had better act fast before the rug-of-permanent-laws-and-tax-passage is pulled out from under them as the religion falters.
