Not rocket science. Public is being duped into thinking this is about environment when it is really about raising money and finding an excuse to hang it on. If environment, then just tax the fuel (makes collection and enforcement easy). It's just nice and convenient to have a nasty issue like pollution to blame the tax on. Oh yes, I forget, fuel is already heavily taxed so we can't use that excuse. We tried that once when it was "road" tax but someone forgot to spend the money on roads. (Grumpy because daughter no 2 just wrecked two wheels and tyres on a pothole and council is pretending that it was her fault).

Get the peasants all worked up about some invisible omnipotent enemy and you can get away with just about anything.
We have a lady here taking VW to court for stress and nightmares now that finds out she she is number one enemy of the planet.
I've no doubt her symptoms are genuine.
