This animation shows how your family's climate income, increased costs (due to carbon fees on the things that you buy) and emissions might change over time if a climate-income policy is adopted by the UK government. The exact amounts depend upon your household income and on the size of your household but you can alter these using the sliders.

The results are not a precise prediction because they assume a specific carbon pricing, a specific response of the economy to carbon prices and that you buy a "typical" range of goods and services. Different assumptions will give slightly different results but the broad patterns are similar for any reasonable set of assumptions. If you want the full, mathematical detail it can be found in this document.
