Yes it's time again for the government to drive another few thousand into fuel poverty.

SVDP see rise in fuel poverty cases - Independent.ie

Instead of helping people with the cooling trend we have been expeirencing over past 5 years Inda and de biez are going to make it yet more difficult to heat our homes when the should be helping us deal with the weakest solar cycle in 110 years.

We are currently at the top of cycle 24 which means temps may increase slightly for 2013 and 2014 however the downside of 24 will last from 2015 to 2022 and predictions for cycle 25 are frightening to say the least.



Carbon tax

"In Budget 2013 it was announced that the carbon tax will be extended to solid fuels (for example, peat and coal) on a phased basis. A rate of €10 per tonne will be applied with effect from 1 May 2013 and a rate of €20 per tonne from 1 May 2014."

It really is time for people to wake up to the reality of the situation we are in.

It also time for the members of the CO2 cult to admit you where wrong and stop persecuting your fellow citizens unnecessarily.

Enough is enough.

In the original design, Ireland's carbon tax was tied to the price of CO2 emission permits, as that is the only way to guarantee a level playing field for companies inside and out the EU ETS; it also ensures that the emission reduction targets are met at the lowest possible cost.

The price of permits has fallen steadily since the carbon tax was introduced. The carbon tax should therefore fall, not rise.

There was a lady on the radio the other day that was in some voluntary debt arrangement with the banks, she could survive ok on what the banks allowed her, but she said fuel costs were wiping them out

...........all so the govt can squeeze an few extra euros out of everybody while those thieving scum pulling in the best part of €150k..........I despair of the sheep that roam this barren land.

Thank you Richard.

The honor is mine.

On the 1st of May we will be paying 10 euro per co2 tonne on heating fuels despite the fact that it is trading at around 3 euro per tonne.

It's a phhhhhhhhhhuuuuckin outrage !!!!!!!!!

Good to see you posting here, an honest economist not afraid to criticise bad policy and spin. It is a pity the ESRI didn't appreciate you, the UK's gain is our loss.

There is no carbon tax on burning tires so I am OK.

It was Eamon Ryan that bullied him out of the country because he was telling the truth.

I don't blame Richard for giving up on us an getting on with his life.

I wish him the best of luck.

Another opportunity for the PAYE taxpayers to put their hands into their empty pockets and give more money to the Anglo Bondholders.

As our ex-President is now 69 i'm sure some it will go into preserving her over the following 57 years, perhaps eventually preserving her for future generations Futurama style along with Al Gore:

Would you like a shipment of large, but not too strong magnifying glasses. Rash. You could use them to exaggerate the warming from the weak sun and reduce the amount of fuel use.

That makes, probably, more sense than your attempt to link sunspots with this.

its an interesting tax, poor people pay more for fuel so that wealthier civil servants can continue their driving holidays to France.......
