The latest climate change mania is rationing. One Dr. Nathan Wood, a university wallah (naturally) in the UK, has come up with the idea of WW2 style rationing to "fix global warming". Wood says that rationing would help not only in the mitigation of climate change, but also help with a 'variety' of other 'social and political issues' such as the energy crisis.

And here's a lot of us thinking that the energy crisis has been caused by net zero ambitions and unreliable wind and solar!

First, cause a shortage, then bring in rationing.

It becomes more and more a question; at what point do the peasants revolt.
They will, but when?
Historically at the point of hunger and social annihilation.

Already there is rationing. Housing is rationed by scarcity right now, governed by availability of the resource of wealth for its acquisition.

Same applies to other essentials of life such as water and electricity, transport, every necessity of life is governed by the individuals ability to pay the market manipulated price.

The system is called Capitalism.Capitalism is a classic tool for rationing.

The poor always pay the price. So the question is; who are inside the class of the poor who pay the greatest cost of elitismís failures?

That's a pretty good idea ttbn, but first we should get rid of waste, by rationing education to things useful. Thus we could shut all humanities departments in unis, & save 35% or so of the costs, & emissions involved in tens of thousands of hours of useless travel & talk.

Put all those displaced by this to work picking fruit & vegetables & we have solved the farm labour shortage at the same time. It would of course be immensely frustrating for the farmers getting such people to actually do a bit of work, but they would probably manage.

... And you thought China was the enemy ttbn,

How evil they are to make all those TV sets and other cheap goods and sell them to us?
- With money we made from stuff in the ground we sold them?

It's people in the West who promote endless immigration, want to support wars, keep people poor and turn kids transgender.

Hassy,

You suggest mind control and slave labour, how like you is that. I think others of your ilk have tried that in the past with some limited success. Don't you just think we should nuk those 200 million Pakies and be done with it?
