Border taxes may be needed for 'hidden' CO2 emissions that sneak across state lines-BBC (state owned media)

(The UK government profits if people believe in CO2 endangerment)

4/25/11, "Carbon emissions 'hidden' in imported goods revealed," BBC, Roger Harrabin (employee of the state)

"The extent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions "hidden" in imported goods is growing, according to two studies.

Official data do not include emissions from making imported goods but both sets of researchers say they should.

The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports 26% of global emissions come from

  • producing goods for trade.

The Carbon Trust found such "embedded" CO2 could negate domestic carbon cuts planned in the UK up to 2025....

"It raises questions about consumption patterns, and whether countries should consider border taxes on imports from countries with no controls on CO2 emissions… though this is controversial and will be some way down the line."

A UK think tank, the Public Interest Research Centre (Pirc), has been discovering how uncomfortable this issue is proving

  • for rich nations.

A succession of Freedom of Information requests reveals a degree of frustration among some British civil servants that the UK insists on basing its emissions calculations solely on domestic emissions."...


The article notes Communist China as a likely source of goods with 'hidden' CO2, but says the UK can't wait around for China to be up front about emissions, that UK citizens must be the 'greenest.'


In 2007 UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said the carbon market was key


10/24/10, "'It is wholly inappropriate that the Palace should have such a direct interest in a subject like windfarms, given Prince Charles's obsession with renewable energy. It raises the question as to whether he is seeking to increase his own

each time he makes a favourable reference to wind power.'"

The financial survival of the UK monarchy is dependent on the success of the global warming industry. The monarchy as reported has a new income arrangement which relies in part on wind turbine income. Prince Charles isn't technically with the government but he acts in a governmental role in pushing the global warming agenda part of which reportedly includes starving children.
