No Unnecessary Travel Allowed in the War on CO2

I'm going to be flying to Vermont tomorrow, and some of my colleagues are also taking airline trips soon, including a few to far off Guatemala. This will doubtless anger British Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett, who is busying herself advocating for a "global warming tax" on airline travel of as much as £50 ($94) per ticket, in order to cut down on the number of airline trips her constituents can afford to take. One imagines that the number of flights Ms. Beckett herself takes, will (being taxpayer-funded) see no decline.
