There are industries, such as the aviation or cement industries, whose business model is largely based on using or converting vast quantities of fossil fuels at an unreasonably low price. If, for example, airline tickets become less attractive due to an additional climate price in ECO, the demand for such offers will drop significantly. This is because hardly anyone would want to afford high expenditures of the parallel currency. Suppliers would automatically have to switch to climate-friendly fuels to meet the changed demand. This is exactly the positive effect of a resource currency. Using environmentally friendly, alternative energy sources will become more attractive and thus finally competitive in contrast to the much too cheap use of fossil fuels today. No jobs will be destroyed in the process. Instead, a transformation will take place. A steady transformation from the jobs that are still associated with the excessive use of fossil fuels today to more jobs in the green sector.
