Happy 25th Birthday to the Channel Tunnel! alas London is a 10 hour journey from Berlin by train so opted for this high-carbon emitting mode of transport ✈💨

@calumryan Only 10 hours. That seems incredible. It isn’t the time that bothers me, it is the price. Top whack carbon tax can’t come soon enough.

@jeremycherfas Who will be the taxing authority? How will the tax money be spent? How will any theoretical manmade climate change be affected?

@jeremycherfas Indeed it's something I'd consider and have done going to Nuremberg last year. Deutsche Bahn are quite competitive on price vs airlines but only if you book many months ahead. The London Spezial deal to Berlin can be around €90 and not much more in 1st class for the whole journey (city-city).

@calumryan I’m doing Brussels London by train after Utrecht because it is actually cheaper!

@rmcrob National jurisdictions will do fine. On renewables. If you really think it is "theoretical" then that's the extent of my engagement. Cap and trade would be OK too.
