WEDNESDAY 30 JUNE 2021 Cotton Tax?!
I shall give a short presentation about the world trade in cotton, its production and consumption, and their environmental impacts. Cotton is a valuable cash crop but requires very large quantities of the increasingly scarce resource of water, much use of pesticides and herbicides and is a significant element of excessive consumption in the west. Should we introduce a cotton tax equivalent to the sugar tax to reduce excessive consumption and waste? It will be brief, highlighting a range of concerns, giving much time for us to discuss, explore our views and what policies should be developed.
