MP’s Recommend Petrol Rationing To Help With Climate Change
Posted by Tory Aardvark
This has to be quite simply the most stupid idea yet from the Warming Alarmists, lets ration petrol because it will benefit us all.
Not quite sure how that works outside of the ivory tower based academic mindset in the real world, but it will save us from the giant mutant star goat that the All Party Parliamentary Group on Peak Oil believe is threatening the planet.
The deeper you dig in to the report, the quicker you realise is what they are attempting is to introduce Cap n Trade for the individual.
There would a free weekly allowance of Tradeable Energy Quotas, beyond this level people can buy and sell TEQ’s
But critics slammed the plans as “absolute lunacy” and said the controversial proposals would hit already-stretched drivers’ pockets.
The RAC Foundation has warned that fuel could hit £8 a gallon – £1.75 a litre – in parts of the country after it emerged some petrol stations in the Orkney Isles are charging £1.50 a litre.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Peak Oil made the bid for weekly fuel quotas.
The group of 20 parliamentarians from the main parties argue that limiting what drivers consume would deal with global energy shortages and the climate crisis.
The committee has proposed a weekly “electronic energy rationing system” called TEQs (Tradable Energy Quotas) that would be distributed for free to all adults.
Any extra units can be bought while surplus units can be sold. They claim the system would work like a credit card and be as “easy as topping up an Oyster card or mobile phone”.
Another oportunity for corruption just like the EU’s ETS scheme and other schemes which have proved very profitable for fraudsters.
Group chairman John Hemming MP insisted rationing would benefit the motorist.
But Luke Bosdet at the AA dismissed the idea as an “academic’s brainwave typically out of touch with reality”. He said: “It sends alarm bells ringing because of its administration and fears of exploitation. The idea of people trading carbon units has two questions: who will administer this and how much will it cost?
“People will be allowed to trade units they don’t use, which as usual will hit the lower-income driver who becomes priced off the road.
“It would be open for abuse by greedy individuals and politicians.”
It comes as no surprise that John Hemming MP is a LibDem ecomentalist and ally of Atilla The Huhnatic.
