It seems the Swedes don’t share Greta Thunberg’s enthusiasm for forking over taxes to save the planet. In 2014, the Swedish national government spent 5.2 billion Swedish krona (US$547mn), It will double to 12.6 billion krona (US$1.3bn) for the upcoming 2020 budget.
The Swedish Taxpayers Alliance wrote,
“The government has more than doubled the appropriations for climate policy, but despite this, emissions no longer decrease. In 2018, emissions even increased. That is why climate policy has been voted the worst waste of the year.“
