In one paper Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.Yep, the 'little people' will get to stand outside and watch these self-important bureaucrats solve a non-existent problem by rationing your access to energy and economic growth...
This would mean a drastic change in lifestyles for many people in countries like Britain as everyone will have to buy less ‘carbon intensive’ goods and services such as long haul flights and fuel hungry cars.
Prof Anderson admitted it “would not be easy” to persuade people to reduce their consumption of goods.
Here's the Greenpeace vision for the future... you get to walk everywhere. No more cars, trucks, boats, planes. Nope... pedal power and shoe leather. That's the future... at least for the 'little people'. Of course the bureaucrats -- and Greenpeace -- will be able to jet in and around the world to pass out the little green pedometers to make sure that we, the underlings, are plodding and trodding our way into the carbon-free future they have planned for us! The hypocrisy of this "campaign" is that nobody "walked" to this conference. They all jetted to that sun-and-fun site! Oops... there goes the carbon budget for the next 5 years!
