Doherty TD criticises VAT on carbon tax as ‘a tax upon a tax’

first_imgNew revelations that carbon tax would be subject to VAT have come under strong criticism from Donegal TD Pearse Doherty.The Sinn Féin deputy said he has received confirmation that any future carbon tax increases would also attract VAT.This, Doherty said, means that the mooted carbon tax jumps will be even more regressive than anticipated. He said it amounted to “a tax upon a tax”. Speaking today Deputy Doherty said: “Sinn Féin is opposed to the increase in carbon tax because it will disproportionately punish those on low and middle incomes while big business and corporate polluters will not be made to pay their fair share.“The government has failed to provide any meaningful alternatives to citizens to enable behavioural change. It now seeks to pass the buck to households, once again, for their policy failures. The fact that VAT must be applied to carbon tax means the tax will itself be taxed.”Deputy Doherty said that the “catastrophic reality of climate change” must be dealt with in a fair way.He added: “The bills faced by ordinary people are already too big from sky-high rents to inflated insurance premiums. “Government investment can help bring about change such as through free insulation and retrofits, making electric cars affordable and developing the charging infrastructure and through public transport expansion and fare reductions.“These programmes are not on the agenda for the Taoiseach or Minister for Finance as they fixate on increasing carbon taxes even though the evidence does not show that it is an effective way of changing behaviours especially without alternatives being put in place.”Doherty TD criticises VAT on carbon tax as ‘a tax upon a tax’ was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:carbon taxPearse Dohertylast_img read more

Arizona Utility Imposes a New Solar Fee

first_imgAn Arizona public utility has voted to impose new charges on customers who generate some of their own electricity with photovoltaic (PV) systems, arguing the extra income will help pay for grid infrastructure and maintenance, ThinkProgress reports.Directors of the Salt River Project (SRP) voted in favor of the new fee late last month despite the appearance of some 500 protesters at their meeting in Tempe.Chief Financial Executive Aidan McSheffrey said that the utility has no choice but to modernize the grid and improve reliability. But in a letter to SRP, SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive promised to sue the utility for violating state and federal antitrust laws.ThinkProgress said the additional “demand charge” would be based on a solar customer’s peak power demand during the month and would be imposed no matter how much power the customer provided to the grid. Solar advocates get some concessionsThe utility had originally proposed that the 15,000 existing solar customers in the state keep their current rates for 10 years before being switched to the new plan. But in the end, directors agreed to push that out to 20 years in response to customers who had calculated savings on their investments with a longer time line.SRP also decided to allow customers who signed solar contracts before December 8, 2014 to keep the current rate plan for 20 years, ThinkProgress reports.Finally, the utility said that it would use a 30-minute period of peak power demand rather than 15 minutes to determine the new demand charge.Still, it’s not enough to deter SolarCity, which had urged SRP a week before the vote to withdraw the plan.Rive wrote the new fee is “an unabashed penalty on customers who want to go solar and a deliberate effort to stop new solar installations.”ThinkProgress adds that solar customers in neighboring New Mexico are looking at a similar proposal. There, the state’s largest electric utility proposed late last year a $30 monthly fee for solar customers in order to connect to the grid.last_img read more

That probably sounds like an overly dramatic statement to most readers of this blog, but the truth is that it’s the truth. Anthony’s guest on this episode is Cat Hoke, an amazing woman who’s working to see that the hustlers in prison who really want a second chance at life actually get their first chance ever, by rehabilitating and training them to use their natural propensity to hustle in legal ways – like entrepreneurship and business. This is an amazing conversation you’ll be glad you listened to, so be sure you do listen..@catherine_hoke: Transforming #Hustlers Into #Entrepreneurs – Episode #105 @DefyVenturesClick To TweetCat Hoke works with EITs, Entrepreneurs in Training who are coming out of incarcerationMost of the people in prisons don’t live with any real sense of hope. When you are serving a life sentence, what is there to hope for? That mindset becomes a chain of defeat that hangs over them and the environment in which they live reminds them how hopeless their situation is every day of their lives. So when Cat Hoke and her team walk into a prison and begin spouting off things about hope and change, it’s a hard sell. But she’s one of the most convincing salespeople you’ll ever meet. Currently, her program, Defy Ventures is serving over 5000 EITs – entrepreneurs in training – and is teaching them not only what it means to hope, but what it means to be free from the chains of prison and emotional bondage. You’ve got to hear Cat’s story, on this episode of In The Arena.Turning hustlers into Entrepreneurs with only a 3.2% recidivism rateOne of the main problems with the penal system in most countries is that they are not really about rehabilitation, they are only about punishment. The people inside know that and the culture and environment within the walls of the prison show it to be true. But the Defy Ventures team has made a significant difference in many prisons in the United States already. With only a 3.2% recidivism rate (release offenders going back to prison) they are undoubtedly having an impact. You can hear how the Defy team makes such a difference in the lives of people most of society considers beyond redemption, on this episode.Turning #hustlers into #entrepreneurs with only a 3.2% #recidivism rate @DefyVentures @catherine_hokeClick To TweetCat’s father taught what not to be and empowered her in the processPart of what Cat has come to realize is that the circumstances of her birth are really the only things that kept her off a path that leads to prison. As she’s met more and more of the people who are incarcerated she’s realized that many of them were born into circumstances where it was next to impossible to avoid eventual incarceration. Her father, for example, set her up for success through the things he taught and the intentional care he showed. He wouldn’t allow her to whine or complain and he challenged her with a form of “shark tank” around the dinner table, giving her entrepreneurial or business challenges to figure out. The realization of how much advantage she had compared to many others is what has driven her to a place of compassion rather than criticism. Learn what Cat is doing to help inmates break free of the chains that bind them, on this episode.Cat helps hustlers face the pain so the past doesn’t repeat itselfEven when many hustlers who wind up in prison get out, they are still in chains. The things that drove them into prison in the first place – hurt, anger, neglect, abandonment – are still with them. The Defy Ventures program is not only about teaching job skills and business savvy, it’s about taking those individuals who have been incarcerated to a place where healing can begin. It’s a tough road that even the toughest people don’t easily walk, but when the journey is complete it’s a liberating thing – in more ways than one.

Twice he has been the most fouled (the title-winning campaigns of 2014/15 and 2016/17) and already this term he leads the way, illegally halted on average every 24 minutes.”Sometimes it’s tough. For seven years I have got kicked all the time. But now I take care of my ankles, my knees!

first_imgWolves legend Bull hails Traore for victory at Man Cityby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves legend Steve Bull has hailed the impact of two-goal Adama Traore for victory at Manchester City last week.He wrote for the Express & Star: “Adama Traore’s finishing was top-class as well.”He has had a lot of criticism during his time at the club, with people saying it’s all 100mph with him – too fast.”He took his goals absolutely brilliantly, though. He slotted them away like a true goalscorer. Some might think they were easy finishes. Trust me, they weren’t.”Traore could have fluffed his lines and smacked the ball into the row Z, but he knew where he wanted to put the ball and placed it past the keeper with confidence both times.”Raul Jimenez set each of them up, of course, and I thought he was excellent as well, constantly making himself available.”It was a delight to see him run at the City backline and take on Nicolas Otamendi in the build-up to Traore’s first. It’s something we expect to see from Diogo Jota, not Jimenez.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
