Jean-Francois Cope, parliamentary leader of the governing UMP party, was quoted as saying the tax “would be Europe-wide or not (exist) at all”.
Prime Minister Francois Fillon told parliament that the government should focus on policies that increased France’s economic competitiveness.
It’s good to see a bit of sanity in the world of crazy government. Not that the current US administration would mind carbon taxing itself into obsolescence. Take it from our European friends, CO2 limitation is a horrible idea, unilateral CO2 limitation is just dumb.
