UK considers enacting carbon tax – price of meat, cheese gas heating price could rise

Channel 4 News has confirmed that the government is considering whether to impose what’s effectively a tax on the country’s most carbon-intensive services, along with a roadmap showing how to deliver it over the next decade.

The move – which would be part of plans to meet the UK’s net-zero carbon emissions pledge – could make the price of things like meat, cheese and gas heating more expensive.
