Disadvantages: bad weather and bad taxes
I think cars are a luxury. Before cars hit the roads people used to take weeks to travel from one end of the country to the other.
Obviously everyone wants best in life and for most people cars are the most convenient thing to get from A to B.
Raising price of petrol will hurt the poor most as intended. There are more poor people than rich people so raise in petrol prices and taxing people for number of miles travelled will hurt the poor, rich will be able to pay.
Green house effect, global rise in temperatures has happened in the past and it will happen in the future. At certain points in history there was no ice in Arctic or Antarctica.
The temperatures will go up and eventually ice age will begin (due anyway) and Earth will regulate the temperature.
Asking people to pay more money for driving cars, for using heating and lighting and finally for generating rubbish is just not on.
Raising taxes on things is one way street. Once the government starts it always raises more taxes in the future. Long time ago there was no income tax, once it started it never stopped.
Britain's contribution in bad gases is extremely small. Yet the think tanks conveniently want to raise taxes on everything because the world is getting hot. What about countries in other continents and mainland Europe.
While the green house syndrome is here, raising taxes and changing peoples habits doesn't do a thing for the environment.
