Screw you, EU, and the plane you flew in on

China has told the EU to take their carbon tax on air flights over Europe and put it where the sun don't shine. The EU Emissions Trading Scheme went into effect on January 1st. It purports to charge all airlines flying in EU airspace a carbon tax on emmissions. Many countries, including Canada and the US have protested the tax. China did them one better. It ordered all Chineses flagged airlines not to pay the tax.

Powerful and confident nations can do that. Apologetic and weakening nations attempt to appease all comers. It doesn't work - we should know that from our own history...we were once powerful and confident.
