Whatever the agreement or disagreement on global warming or 'green' issues a serious review is required on the costs and impacts of these hastily applied levies and taxes on using energy and getting on with day to day business. The costs and impact on business in the UK and on private use of energy and almost everything we do is enormous and should be reviewed in a different light. The basic principles should be that the UK is small and bears little relation to the rest of the world, current taxpayers should not have to pay now for the next 1000 years. Every business and project is affected by this, especially the building industry which is already under too much pressure from legislation.
You should urgently review the unnecessary levies and taxes on so called carbon producers
