Backlash on carbon allowances

I thought the carbon allowances scheme was a positive idea from the Government. It probably originated from somewhere more in touch with the problem than the Prime Minister’s office. However others have commented that it could be as far off as so many other ideas. It could be several years before such a scheme was viable. In the meantime heavy users could be punished by taxation, but that doesn’t offer the balancing incentive that allowances would.
