Petition Action

Impose new taxes on private jets to increase investment in renewables

Petition Details

The aviation industry emits 12% of all transport carbon dioxide emissions. We want the Government to impose new taxes on the use of private jets, to try and reduce CO2 emissions and raise funds to invest in renewable energy, green transportation, and electric vehicle infrastructure.

Additional Information

I believe I can speak on behalf of the planet when I say, we have had enough. We desperately need to reduce the level of carbon emissions entering our atmosphere before we are responsible for the mass extinction of almost 90% of marine species, and the millions of individuals at risk from rising sea levels.
