CO2 tax makes cab driver cheaper

The big energy intensive companies spread by mass media fear and scare about the CO2 tax. The truth, even cab driving becomes cheaper.

  Decrease taxes on work, increase costs for fossil energy

The tax system has to be changed. It's a disaster for humans and the environment. The same amount of taxes should be taken by shifting away from taxes on humans towards consumption of fossil energy.

  10 Cent per kg CO2 - 600.-EUR exempted amount at social insurance

Autumn 2008, PEGE proposed for the first 10 Cent per kg CO2 tax. A tax on atomic power of 7 cent per kWh. With the resulting 100 billion EUR in Germany, should be a exempted amout of 600.-EUR at the social insurance be financed. The social insurance is the most powerfill wappon to force companies to employ less people.

  At 1500 brutto a month yearly 3200.-EUR less social insurance

Consequence of 10 cent per kg CO2 tax at the fuel costs of different cabs with typical 60.000 km a year.

Vehicle Consumption 100km CO2 tax per unit More costs per year
6 zylinder automatic gasoline 12 litre 24 Cent 1728,--EUR
Diesel 8 litre 26 Cent 1152,--EUR
Toyota Prius 6 litre 24 Cent 864,--EUR
BYD F3 DM 16 kWh 7 Cent 672,--EUR

The savings at the social insurance should be distributed between company and worker. The cab driver has at the end of the year 1600.-EUR more salary received, the company takes the 1600.-EUR to compensate the higher energy expenses. As to see, this is possible at the most used Diesel cabs.
