Tax Exile Calls For Green Taxes

Cancun climate change talks: Richard Branson calls for global carbon taxes | Environment | The Guardian
Branson, in Cancun to launch a web-based initiative to reduce shipping emissions by as much as 25% over the next 20 years, said taxes could be useful. "

That presumably is the same Richard Branson who started his record business with a tax scam and is famous for his entirely legal and above board offshore trusts which reduce his tax liability.
But he is a cuddly entrepreneur who cares for the environment so no protests at his shops.


We can all agree with Richard Branson's basic concept can't we?? That is: tax someone else and benefit me! I like it! But somehow I suspect I'M the someone else who is going to pay the tax...
