“It’s pretty drastic proposal.”
this is the sound of the reaction from the Liberal Alliance president, Alex Vanopslagh, on Klimarådets new recommendations. In return he has even an attention-grabbing announcement, which may come as a surprise to many. We will return to.
It should in fact be more expensive to buy beef, milk and gasoline, if we are to achieve the objective of reducing Danish CO2-emissions by 70 percent by 2030, suggests Klimarådet.
According to the council, the ftt will make the milk two crowns more expensive per litre, half a kilo of beef will be 13 dollars more expensive, and a liter of gasoline will the tax cost four dollars more than in the day.
Alex Vanopslagh fear the consequences, even though he’s not averse to making, for example, klimabelastende food more expensive.
“We can let taxes increase to the point where it is not moving production out of the country. In return, you must lower taxes on work and investment, double as much.”
“You should not screw the charges so high, that the production simply shifted abroad. If Danish agriculture shifted abroad, where they emit more CO2 per. unit, have you done something bad for the climate, and Denmark, are becoming poorer. It’s just stupid.”
the Chairman of the Liberal Alliance believes Klimarådets taxes are too high, but he stresses that Denmark should be a green pioneer.
“But we only become a pioneer, if we are to find solutions to the green transition, which can inspire out in the big world,” he says, and mentions the cooperation between Denmark and China, where, by using Danish technology and expertise hopes to cut 30 million tons of China’s CO2 emissions.
LA-the head comes in addition with a sensational announcement:
“I miss a little in the Danish debate that the man has an eye for that it can actually be a gain for the climate if the CO2-footprint in Denmark, the isolation increases,” says Alex Vanopslagh and explains:
“If we say we have the agriculture in the world, with the lowest change, it will be an advantage that it can win the production from other countries, and not being troubled with taxes and fees. Relatively speaking, would CO2 emissions increase in Damnark, but on the world it will, relatively speaking, rise less than it otherwise would have done if production had continued in for example Poland.”
