Where has all the eco-friendly tax income gone?

As the G8 summit in Italy continues to grab the headlines for all of the wrong reasons it seems that the billions upon billions of pounds of eco-friendly taxes collected by the likes of the UK government have apparently disappeared with no visible impact on the environment.

Amid more and more hot air rising from the G8 summit, where the likes of Barack Obama and Gordon Brown are present, we seem to be going over the same ground over and over again while the ice caps melt, the temperature of the ocean rises and an ecological disaster appears to be heading our way. Despite the fact that governments around the world promised so much and delivered so little there is no recourse to find out exactly how eco-taxes have been spent and whether they are in fact being spent in the correct areas.

The environment has been used as an excuse for many governments around the world, with the UK government in the top league, to raise significant taxes from taxpayers time and time again. There is a feeling of, do as I say not as I do, with regards to government eco-policies with taxpayers as ever footing the bill. Surely now is the time to demand to know exactly where the eco-taxes are being directed and how they are being squandered?
