Skip to comments.Climate change: Big lifestyle changes are the only answer (only 11.28 years left)
Posted on 10/11/2019 6:47:55 PM PDT by Libloather
The UK government must tell the public small, easy changes will not be enough to tackle climate change, warn experts.
Researchers from Imperial College London say we must eat less meat and dairy, swap cars for bikes, take fewer flights, and ditch gas boilers at home.
The report, seen by BBC Panorama , has been prepared for the Committee on Climate Change, which advises ministers how to cut the UK's carbon footprint.
It says an upheaval in our lifestyles is the only way to meet targets.
The government has passed a law obliging the country to cut carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.
It is "going further and faster than any other developed nation to protect the planet for future generations", a government spokesperson told BBC Panorama. "If we can go faster, we will."

Loot up front, please.
The Lear jet leftists expect to form the core of the global Inner Party. There they will continue to enjoy the finest foods and most advanced gadgets the world has to offer — while deciding your fate for you.
If you work very hard and show them your unwavering loyalty you may be permitted to join the global Outer Party. You will be allowed occasional servings of meat - and air conditioning on a rationed basis.
The rest of us will eat insects and swelter — for the good of the planet.
The “experts” have plans for the masses—starve us to death with high taxes.
Anyone who has seen petri dishes overrun with growth, knows exactly what is in store for the Earth. There is no fix, aside from the Elon Musk maneuver.
Interesting how those demanding pervasive lifestyle changes refuse to do so first.
Somebody needs to make a Klimate Katastrophe Klock
They will need to do that anyway - seeing as how this winter in the EU will be the coldest in the last 100 years....
With more cold to come.
A friend of mine does that next to Prius and Leaf drivers with his Ford diesel.
The hoi polloi must live like medieval serfs while their political masters still get to live well. For the Erf, dontchaknow.
All citizens are created equal. Some are a little more equal than others.
No. This is just the elitist hypocrites wanting to be the only ones with the toys/good things. They do not follow any of the rules they make.
All about controlling the peasants.
I haven’t flown on a plane in a decade+, walk a lot, don’t have gas much less a boiler, no children, and keep the house coldish in the winter (in summer too, but let’s focus on what’s important...). I am offering a limited run of 5000 shares in my Personal Climate Virtue Package on a subscription basis at only $1 per share per month. Act fast! GBP welcomed! Feel good about yourself again!
All jogging and other sports should be banned cause of all the CO2 exhaled. And gaseous vegetarians should be required to take Beano with every meal.
Far fetched? Wait and see. Nothing is to looney for the leftist radicals.
It’s all about rationing.

Back to the stone ages folks- all because of NATURAL CYCLICAL WARMING TRENDS!
“And by ‘we’ we mean YOU. And don’t call us totalitarians.”
[[The experts have plans for the massesstarve us to death with high taxes.]]
It’s I believe, a part of the end times and the mark of the beast- one world government controlling all energy, and not allowing anyone to get energy UNLESS they take the mark of the beast eventually-
Think about it- you’re starving, you have no heat for below zero winter months, you can’t drive a vehicle, can’t cook, no electricity UNLESS you take the mark- then the gov will dole out rations of energy, electricity, fuel for vehicles, heating fuel, etc-
Prices for EVERYTHING will skyrocket because of the massive expenses associated with just transporting products to shelves and market places
It is my belief that ‘Man Caused climate change’ lie will be the excuse to control energy and cripple the world to the point of having to either keep resisting the mark, or taking it and having the ‘luxuries’ we now have and can afford-
[[Its all about rationing.]]
Exactly, and rationing IS control- people said “What’s happening in Venezuela couldn’t possibly happen here- people would not stand for it”
To those folks we say Yeah? Well it IS happening here- and no- people ARE standing for it- so far at least-
