Some experts believe climate policy will have a dramatic effect on oil prices. It was a message underlined by the world’s most influential climate scientist, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, head of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental panel on climate change, in Edinburgh last week.

Swinney’s paper repeated dour predictions from the Office of Budget Responsibility in March 2012 that oil revenues would fall steeply to £4.8bn (from £10bn in 2011-12). It points out how significant those revenues are to Scotland: under that scenario, oil taxes would be worth around 13% of Scotland’s overall tax take by 2016-17, compared to about 1.5% for the UK as a whole.
