It doesn't make sense to remove the tax incentive for reducing emissions. It doesn't make logical sense and, to my mind, is irrational.

The carbon emissions as I see it is not the issue, it is just another way the ANC government is recovering fund because of there lack of control of the officials from looting our coffers, this government need to show us rate payers that they are serious about stopping corruption before I will support good causes.

Just another money milking machine.
Answer one question. For what will the money inned be used. To assist or to spend on Escom and SAA ?.

Maak VAT 20% en raak ontslaae van persoonlike inkomste belasting, dan betaal almal in die land belasting van die rykste tot die armste.

Jy kan nie jou gat afwerk en elke maand 48% van jou inkomste vir die staat gee wat dit net steel nie.

So as ek n nuwe kar wil ry dan betaal ek die VAT as ek luukse goed wil koop dan betaal ek die VAT. Sosoende kan ek besluit oor my geld wat ek voor werk en nie die skelm staat nie

SA should become less dependent on ESCOM.
ESCOM should be drastically downsized and privatized.
There are too many employees at ESCOM.
ESCOM has become a financial drain on the money that SA taxpayers can afford.
