>>1396056>putting a tax on activities with negative externalities IS the normal way of reducing the amount those things happen
And it's retarded.
We tried sin taxes on smoking for decades, and all it did was impoverish smokers. The real collapse in smoking came from info-campaigning, school intervention, and most obviously from vaping. Education and innovation, not punishment.
The exact same is true of alcohol. Taxes on alcohol and rates of alcohol abuse do not negatively correlate, all it does is impoverish alcoholics.
If you want the aviation industry to clean up, what you DON'T want to do is reduce the amount of money they have to innovate. What you DON'T want to do is create a market with fewer competitors. Fuel is already a massive part of airline running costs, there is plenty of existing market drivers to reduce airline emissions, and the promise of short-haul, battery-electric airliners is merely 8-10 years away.
So cool your fucking jets and think for one moment about what is more likely; a simple solution exists to most of the world's largest problems, or lazy thinking permeates society and political discourse. I think you'll find that a panacea is FAR less likely than lazy thinking.
