Climate Change Scientists Call for Food Rationing to Reduce Carbon Emissions

Leading scientists have called for World War II-style rationing in First World countries to avert catastrophic global warming, in a series of papers published by the United Kingdom's Royal Society.

"The Second World War and the concept of rationing is something we need to seriously consider if we are to address the scale of the problem we face," said Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

The recommendation came after Anderson concluded that no other method could secure the decrease in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions needed to prevent temperatures from rising to dangerous levels.

  1. Food rationing? Hmmmmm, that's interesting since some companies throw perfectly good and edible food away on a daily basis. I can't stand companies that waste perfectly good food because they are mean.

    If we really want to decrease carbon monoxide, we need to plant more trees and stop these companies from wasting perfectly good food, throwing it in the skip when some people have no food to eat. Wickedness!

    Common sense.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
