Tax air fuel to fund cheap rail travel
Encourage people not to fly by providing cheap rail fare incentives. We pay more than most European countries for train fares at present.
We could also tax frequent fliers and have a maximum annual air mileage allowance for each individual. There could be a detailed application system for special exemptions.
Why the contribution is important
If we are serious about reducing plane emissions this would be a simple and essential solution.
