Call You and Yours
Do you need to be rich to be Green?

That's the question we are asking on Tuesday's Call You & Yours. If you pay tax and power bills then you're shelling out hundred's of pounds a year toward schemes designed to combat climate change. But is the system fair to all or are some getting more out of it than others?

Micro-generators and power companies are receiving plenty of financial encouragement, land owners prepared to host wind turbines are looking at millions of pounds in revenue, while for most people; is it merely a case of a few free light bulbs and offers of discount lagging?

Perhaps you think climate change is too serious a challenge to be seen in such narrow self interested terms and the government should tax and spend to reduce our carbon output as it sees fit. Or do you fear the way green taxes are structured; it'll be the poor who will bear a disproportionate burden of the costs of cutting carbon?

Julian Worricker chairs our phone-in every Tuesday. To take part on the day call us on 03700 100 444. (Calls are answered between 10am and 1pm every Tuesday: standard geographic charges apply and calls may be included in your telecom provider’s call package. Calls from mobiles may be higher.)
