How will climate change taxes affect IT businesses?

More and more organisations calling for climate taxes and levies. I was pretty shocked to find oil traders calling for carbon levies on oil fuels, but is this a 'sea change' (terrible pun, I know) or just rearranging deck chairs on the titanic? We need to internalise the environmental cost of our actions instead of pretending they don't exist, but it's going to be a massive economic drain. 

I can see the cost of shipping hardware increasing, but I don't see this affecting cloud users too much. Does anyone know of any other impacts carbon taxation may have on IT businesses?
