European Airport Carbon Tax Exemptions - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

US planes
landing in Europe
must be exempt
from carbon taxes

policy is world's
number one economy
global warming disharmony
melts ice politically

US may have caused
Green house gases most of it
but solution pay out should
help taxes paid fix none of it

China is of exemption
same tax free accord
Russia votes exemption
agrees is right on board

    There are various factors that have to be considered before implementing carbon tax and we are going to be billed every month according to the number of appliances and gadgets that we are using at home.

    Coming back to the political issues that is written in this poem, US must take the lead by paying not only the carbon tax, but also the back dated debt that she owed to the UN..

    A country typically raises a trade barrier to protect its own
    So that they can compete more, not against foreigners, but those at home.
    While an airport carbon tax serves nothing like this
    For it is simply a tax, no more or less.

    Now landing fees seem justified if you think about it
    Cause they're about use of the airport as managers see fit.
    But a carbon tax gives neither relief nor pain
    As it is there for one purpose only, revenue to gain.

    Will the air be cleaner with the imposition of tax?
    Hardly, for the objective has nothing about it in fact.
    So with travel to Europe lagging behind
    Because, the economy's in a bind,
    Exemptions and exceptions are what all have in mind.

    As airplanes spew forth pollution in greater amounts
    The Tax Mongers see only the balance sheet, as what counts.
    Would not the better solution for all -
    Reduce travel is the call?

    And knowing it or not, that is exactly what they are doing!
