ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the report published by the Green Fiscal Commission which concluded that the British government should use green taxes to help transform itself into a low-carbon economy. According to the government, green fiscal reform, which involves reducing taxes on society values, is important to meet the target of reducing carbon emissions by 34% by 2010. Comments from professor Paul Etkins on the issue are presented. The influence of the press on the public's understanding of green fiscal reform is also cited.
