(LifeSiteNews) – According to The Times, British scientists have recommended the rationing of food, gas, and household energy as a way to beat global warming.
The price of Net Zero madness:
“How to fix global warming? Bring back rationing, say eco zealots.
Net Zero makes us poorer & is killing colder older people https://t.co/DwCxIfvlew

Trust me, I feel your pain … I too was disgusted that the Luddites who did the research had the audacity to use the term “global warming” for what is clearly “climate change.”
As I write this, I can see another blizzard-like storm has descended on my Canadian village, which is just more evidence that climate change is real. In fact, I remember just a few months ago, during the summer, when none of this was happening. Climate change indeed!
In any case, these British scientists – we are using this term loosely here – have suggested that Britons should roll up their sleeves and accept some good ol’ rationing a la World War II if they are really serious about beating global warming.
The G20 meeting this October will see the most powerful nations in the world - the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the E.U., Australia, India, China, Russia and Brazil among others - discuss climate policies that are already affecting billions of people around the world.
This powerful cadre of international leaders wants the world to run on solar and wind power, forcing an end to the use of gas, oil and nuclear power, as well as crushing beef farmers because of supposed methane emissions.
But the harsh impact of such policies is already being felt, with energy blackouts and soaring inflation hammering people around the world, making it beyond time for all of us to speak out.
SIGN: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
As western leaders turn off the oil spigots and impose draconian restrictions on farmers, we've all experienced the pain of increased prices, not least at the pump and the grocery store.
This inflation was entirely avoidable if only our politicians prioritized food and energy security over climate theories, but instead they have succumbed to radical environmentalists whose agenda would cripple the livelihoods and living standards of much of the globe.
Communities all around you are feeling the weight of crushing price hikes, which will soon reach your own food isles and gas pumps if it hasn't already.
The effects of inflation are being felt in the developing world most, as fuel and food prices sky rocket, making even worse poverty an inevitabilty for hundreds of millions of people.
Reality will hit home for us soon.
The harshest effects of energy shortages will be felt this winter in the west, when our leaders' decisions to cut oil supplies and reject Russian natural gas will:
- force heating, fuel and electricity prices to sky rocket
- continue to make food more expensive
- risk a global depression as inflation spirals out of control
- prompt more blackouts
- make civil unrest a real possibility
The media are already preparing people for rolling blackouts. States like California and countries like England are warning citizens that they face severe electricity and gas shortages.
Now is the time to speak out and be part of a movement that can prevent this disaster spreading.
SIGN the petition calling on international leaders to abandon their reckless energy agenda and return the world to economic stability.
The entire climate change industry is based on models that have been consistently inaccurate for decades, with Al Gore among the most infamous prophets of doom to be proven wrong.
In 2009 Gore told the COP15 climate change conference in Copenhagen that the North Pole would be ice-free by 2014, a claim that remains wildly off the mark.
Arctic sea ice has increased since 2012 and is now close to the average for 1991-2000 – another inconvenient fact for climate change alarmists, alongside thriving polar bears and more coral on the Great Barrier Reef. https://t.co/3m7jcaj1hV— Toby Young (@toadmeister) September 1, 2022
Al Gore is not alone in getting things wrong however, as this brief timeline of scaremongering headlines proves:
The world needs to wake-up to what's really happening: our lives are being upended on the basis of climate theories and models that have been consistently wrong for decades.
It's time to stop the scaremongering and push back against the radical agenda of international elites.
SIGN & SHARE: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
Time for rationing
The study referenced by The Times, published in the journal Ethics, Policy & Environment, noted, “Rationing has been neglected as a climate change mitigation policy option.”
The researchers went on and said, “Rationing is often seen as unattractive, and therefore not a viable option for policymakers.”
Yeah, no kidding, it is unattractive to tell the population to give up meat and heating their homes in order to fight global warming, climate change, or whatever.
Resorting to a false equivalency, the scientists added that rationing was not seen as an unattractive measure for Britons during the war, and therefore we shouldn’t be so negative about it today.
I imagine when the Nazis were dropping bombs on your city and hundreds of thousands of young men were mobilized to try and ensure that Europe was blown off the face of the earth, it was not so hard to see why one might have to go without a few things here and there.
I understand that so-called climate change can cause the snowflakes among us to melt at the anxiety-inducing possibility of polar bears being uncomfortable, but we are not at war with Nazis or the climate.
In fact, the whole polar bear thing has been roundly debunked, by the way.
Government created problem
Now, what would a call to radical and insane climate action be without calling for an equally radical and insane government approach to solving the fictitious problem?
The researchers admitted that the population would not accept rationing as they did during the war, because, well, there isn’t a scarcity of goods. But, since there is an abundance of goods presently, then it is up to the government to regulate the abundant goods and make it feel like they are in fact scarce. So simple!
Think about it – all that’s required is for the government to stop you from getting stuff that you could get before, and then you will imbibe the feeling of there being fewer things and then be OK when the government requires you to have less of what you used to …
What could possibly go wrong?
In their infinite wisdom, the researchers even recommended banning the import of foreign oil.
Is there anyone who will tell them that if they simply stop importing oil, other countries who aren’t insane will buy the oil at a lower price, and then produce more things and become richer than Britain?
Maybe these pendragons of science believed that if the UK doesn’t import oil, it will simply go out of existence like at the end of a magic spell in a fairy tale.
Climate lockdown precursor
Ultimately, what these scientists are arguing for is a climate lockdown.
They say as much when they recommend that people should be rationed in how much they can drive and fly.
Whether any governments will implement what amount to climate lockdowns or not remains to be seen, but it is clear that the out-of-touch class of academic elites are not only out of touch but out of their minds.
