alleged that as the state’s chief minister, Related News How should India approach the forthcoming, based on a series of green actions domestically that contrast,at least in one key area with regressive inaction by advanced countries Start with this contrast The cause of climate change has suffered a setback recently because of the large (about 35-40 per cent) decline in international energy prices But that setback need not have occurred had governments taken offsetting actions to impose taxes on petroleum products How have the major governments fared on this score The chart highlights a striking difference between the responses of advanced countries and those of India The former have reduced taxes while India has increased them substantially Essentially advanced countries have stood by passively passing on the benefits of price reductions to consumers and producers One surprise is the lack of outrage by international greens at this non-action on the part of advanced countries One should also not be overly impressed by recent arguments made for example by the IMF that the decline in energy prices offers an opportune time for advanced countries to impose carbon taxes The fact is such taxes were called for even when oil prices were above $100 per barrel So imposing them at $60 per barrelis only partial and inadequate catch-up While the advanced countries have not exactly covered themselves in glory India has taken a number of positive actions to combat climate change Consider a few First reflecting the developments noted in the chart the government increased the excise duty on petrol and diesel passing on only about one-third of the benefit of declining prices to consumers As a result on petroleum products India has moved from a carbon subsidisation regime to one of significant carbon taxation — from a negative price to a positive price on carbon emissions And the shift has been large For example according to calculations done for the Economic Survey by Muthukumar Mani and Fang Zhang of the World Bank the effect of the recent action hasincreased the carbon tax by nearly $60per tonne of CO2 in the case of petrol and nearly $42 per tonne in the case of diesel In absolute terms the implicit carbon tax ($140 for petrol and $64 for diesel) is substantially above what is now considered a reasonable initial tax on CO2 emissions of $25 per tonne (see graph) Calculating the CO2 emission reduction from the measures taken for petrol and diesel suggests that there will be a net reduction of 11 million tonnes of CO2 emissions in less than a year 06 per cent of India’s annual emissions compared tothe baseline Second the coal cess has quadrupled from Rs 50 per tonne to Rs 200 per tonne This has resulted in an implicit carbon tax of $2 per tonne of CO2 on domestic coal and a carbon tax of $14 per tonne of CO2 on imported coal This may of course still not be enough and cleaning coal may require more domestic action by way of stricter regulation and enforcement For example the health cost of coal for power generation alone in India is estimated to range from $341 per tonne to $5111 per tonne depending on the value of statistical life which is well above the current tax on coal Third according to calculations done by Jonah Busch at the Centre for Global Development the 14th Finance Commission effectively gave afforestation in India a boost by conditioning about $6 billion of transfers to the states based on their forest cover Implicitly India is paying states about $125 per hectare of forest per year which compares favourably with other afforested countries For example Costa Rica pays landowners $60-80 per hectare per year for forest protection and $200-300 per hectare per year for forest restoration Ecuador pays landowners $10-30 per hectare per year for forest protection; Mexico pays $27-36 per hectare per year; Vietnam pays about $15-20 per hectare per year Fourth the prime minister has announced an ambitious plan to ramp up the solar effort from 20 gigawatts to 100 GW by 2025 Fifth despite the considerable costs thatwill be inflicted on domestic industry and eventually on consumers the government has committed to phasing out hydrochlorofluorocarbons a toxic source of greenhouse emissions Finally and perhaps most encouraging from a medium-term perspective pollution-related issues are becoming part of the domestic discourse and potentially a staple of the politics of outrage The series on air pollution carried by this newspaper andthe recent launch by the PM of monitoring mechanisms for pollution in a number of cities are significant in this regard The pressure on governments to respond to this bottom-up pressure is only likely to increase over time While the issues are local and domestic there will be positive international spillovers relating to climate change The time is not far off when carbon taxes to offset the domestic social marginal costs of carbon-related pollution — health accidents and congestion — can be envisaged which will have global benefits Against this background of solidlygreen actions how should India approach Paris For a start India especially with a new PM can credibly repudiate its past perceived image as a recalcitrant negotiator focused on asking others to contribute withoutoffering contributions of its own India’s green actions should be the starting point and the basis for what India could be willing to offer in Paris and what it must seek ofadvanced countries At the end of the classic movie Casablanca the soon-to-be-separated protagonists console themselves with the thought that after all “We’ll always have Paris” For India and the world Paris can be a good memory: India is doing a lot and can hence offer a lot to make COP-21 successful but so too must its partners India should shape the conversation leading up to Paris above all by highlighting its domestic actions so that the world doesn’t just ask what India can do to make Paris successful but also asks what others can do and above all begins by asking what they have not yet done The writer is chief economic advisorto the government of India For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: May 7 2017 10:31 am Sonam Kapoor suggests her followers to stop trolling celebrities Related News Sonam Kapoor urges her fans to stop making celebrities a target for trolling The actor took to Twitter and wrote “I request my followers and fans not to hate on someone and get personal towards other celebrities Be better than that Please remember imitation is the best form of flattery And it just showcases admiration Please don’t get personal and troll” The actor who had recently won a special recognition at the National Award ceremony which held at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on May 4th has often been on the receiving end of being trolled Recently she was trolled for not knowing the National Anthem However the actor gave it back to the trollers and shared a note on the lyrics of the National Anthem and proving herself right The actor refuses to curtail her words and stay quiet about anything that she strongly feels about When Abhay Deol her Aisha co-star raised finger at her for promoting racism by appearing in a fairness cream brand advertisement Sonam was quick enough to response to Abhay’s tweet and swore that she would never promote any such ideology anymore Sonam along with her sister Rhea Kapoor is heading for a big launch of their brand together called Rheason On the work front the actor is busy shooting with Akshay Kumar for R Balki’s PadMan The film is a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham a small town entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu who invented low-cost sanitary napkins to generate awareness in rural areas about its usages and hygiene Also read |National Award for Sonam Kapoor glorious validation of her talent: ShabanaAzmi Post this the Neerja actor would begin her work on Veerey Di Wedding in which she would share the screen space with Kareena Kapoor Khan For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related News "We wanted this facility to be extended to the state for ten years.
