I do dismiss it as irrelevant, because for the MILLIONTH TIME, anecdotes are NOT EVIDENCE. This is not only a fundamental aspect of science, it's a fundamental aspect of critical debate. And for the...

Well you can't tell me that because, as I've already stated, your anecdotes are pointless and don't mean anything. Not to mention, Singapore is a somewhat oppressive state so I wouldn't expect much...

You keep going on about how China travels more now than it did before, but not only is no-one disputing any of that, I completely reject that it's a valid point. No matter what made up statistic you...

True - that's why I dispute the claim that it makes "no difference", how many doctors can you employ with that amount of money? I meant it's small in comparison to the 810 billion of revenue the UK...

I know they're correct - they're very easy to find. What an absurd argument - you think countries should be free to do whatever they want without consequence then? You think Hitler should have been...

It would be incredibly simple to ring-fence all money generated by that tax to be used for environmental protection only. Though even if it wasn't, if it's set high enough to discourage flying then...

According to who? Because a cursory glance at statistics seems to show that China flies around 3x the number of people per year as the UK whereas it has almost 20x the population. The only stats I...

Perhaps.
