How to solve global warming - Put train fares up by more than inflation ? Well that's what this government think anyway.

I though this government had set targets on reducing carbon emmissions ?

I ask this because surely putting the price of rail fares up by more than inflation will surely encourage more people off the trains and in to cars on on to low cost airlines.

Is it me or are the government's words on climate change shown to be vaccuos and hollow when they allow such rises ?

Surely it is time for the government to introduce some more green taxes ( like the green tax switch, as proposed by the Lib Dems) which would provide a greater subsidy of the railways which, in turn, would allow people to really opt for rail in place of cars or airlines.
