Africa Must Raise Taxes to Better Fight Climate Change

Africa Must Raise Taxes to Better Fight Climate Change

Léonce Ndikumana

Let us begin by welcoming international solidarity. Whether it was the United Nations, its field agencies or major NGOs, the mobilization was not long in coming to the aid of Zimbabwe, Malawi, and, especially Mozambique, devastated by Cyclone Idai last March. But as another tropical cyclone, Kenneth, has landed on the East African coast with even greater intensity, we cannot help but detect accents of guilt in this solidarity.

Like everything else, the poor always seem to pay the stiffest price, and have no say at the table.

Really? Who are they going to tax? Nobody has any money.

Untaxed to death

Global Temperature peaked in 2016 and has been decreasing since then. We are now in a period of Global Cooling. http://opinion.fartoomuch.info/GlobalTemp. With this Global Cooling comes rain since land has become cooler then the oceans.
