Carbon passports

As everyone knows human caused climate change is a major problem and a scientific fact. With this in mind will you support carbon passports as over tourism is contributing to human caused climate change? It is seems certain countries have access to unlimited tourism. Carbon passports are a way to limit travel and make tourism more equitable and sustainable.

Unfortunately I don't think the markets can appropriately react to human caused climate change caused by over tourism and inequities in travel and flight. We will need science and governemnt intervention to help create policy to help mitigate the impacts of travel climate change. A carbon passport would be a great solution to help mitigate the impacts of travel.

"Everyone knows..." must be the left wing equivalent to "many people are saying..."

Oh yeah, lots and lots of government intervention please. That's just what we need. Government intervention will fix that problem right up.

There are far too many skeptics in The Nile for this plan to ever work.

How much would unused carbon credits on an individual basis be worth?

I'm sure the idea of a carbon passport with limits to how much you can fly would go over unbelievably well on a frequent flyer forum.

I believe this is the key question for any of these initiatives to work, and how governments can have a positive influence. There is a very small number of people that would do this based only on principle.

And the people that drive more than normal? Car carbon passports? Or the people who eat meat? Meta passports? Love the idea.

Will those with excessive flatulence need tooting passports?
