Yet more taxes from Cyclops Gordon: Air taxes to rise.

Gordon Brown today sparked fears of soaring air fares by calling for a £60billion-a-year international fund to help poor nations adapt to climate change, partly funded by aviation taxes.

The Prime Minister said developed countries should make the massive pot of money available to developing nations so their economies could grow even as they adapt to the changing global climate - and he committed Britain to paying its 'fair share'.

Mr Brown said some of the cash could be raised from international aviation and shipping, through taxes or by including these in carbon emissions trading markets.

Only about ten per cent would come from development aid.
