Warmers Plot Climate Lockdown Rationing
Soros-funded 'academics' are flying a kite for the next big 'war on carbon' assault on the freedom of the 'human herd'. A group of UK academics say that fighting 'climate change' demands a World War II-style rationing of petrol, meat and the energy people use in their homes.
They say this would help countries to slash their greenhouse gas emissions 'rapidly and fairly'.
Researchers from the University of Leeds also said that governments could restrict the number of long-haul flights people make in a year or 'limit the amount of petrol one can buy in a month'.
They said that previous schemes put forward as a way to fight global warming – such as carbon taxes or carbon trading schemes – would not work because they favoured the wealthy, who would effectively be able to buy the right to pollute.
But rationing in Britain during the war was widely accepted, the authors wrote in their paper.
'As long as there was scarcity, rationing was accepted, even welcomed or demanded,' they said.
The researchers say there are two options for a rationing policy: Policymakers could introduce an all-encompassing carbon allowance. They could then give out 'carbon cards' like bank cards to track and limit usage. Or, governments could ration specifically selected goods.
This includes flights, petrol, household energy, or even meat or clothing It wasn't until nine years after the war ended that rationing finished in the UK.
In much the same way as during World War Two, the researchers argue that carbon rationing would allow people to receive an equal portion of resources based on their needs, therefore sharing out the effort to protect the planet.
Lead author Dr Nathan Wood, who is now a postdoctoral fellow at Utrecht University's Fair Energy Consortium, said: 'The concept of rationing could help, not only in the mitigation of climate change, but also in reference to a variety of other social and political issues – such as the current energy crisis.'
One way the climate fanatics suggest to roll out the rationing scheme would be to use 'carbon cards', which would work like bank cards to keep track of a person's carbon allowance, rather than using ration cards.
Dr Lawlor said: 'Many have proposed carbon allowances and carbon cards before.
'What is new (or old, taking inspiration from World War II) is the idea that the allowances should not be tradable.
'Another feature of World War II-style rationing is that price controls on rationed goods would prevent prices from rising with increased demand, benefitting those with the least money.'
The experts believe that rationing would also encourage people to move to more sustainable lifestyles, rather than relying on fossil fuels.
'For example, rationing petrol could encourage greater use of, and investment in, low carbon public transport, such as railways and local trams,' Dr Wood said.
The study has been published in the journal Ethics, Policy & Environment.
What the 'experts' chose to forget is that rationing produced an extensive black market. It would do again, of course, which means that the rich would still be able to go wherever, do whatever and eat whatever they want. It's only us ordinary people who will be hit.
It might all sound crazy and impossible to force people to accept, but the carbon emissions targets which the entire political elite have set are so stringent that there is no chance of meeting them without sweeping measures to force the 'masses' into transport and heating poverty. So something like this is coming - unless We The People wake up, stand up and resist!
