Reference: A plan to issue ration cards for energy to fight climate change
The Institute for Public Policy Research in the UK has put forward a plan to fight climate change by rationing energy. The program would include gasoline, natural gas, heating oil, electricity, diesel, and even airline tickets and holidays. According to the plan each person or perhaps each household will be issued ration cards for a prescribed amount of energy each month and when the that amount has been consumed, excess consumption will be possible only by purchasing very expensive permits or perhaps by making purchases in the black market. Whether intentional or not, the climate change agenda is playing into the hands of the right wing conspiracy theorists who had warned us that climate change was a ruse for big brother to take control of our lives.
