UK environment czar wants to limit holiday trips to save CO2

______________________________

9 Feb 09 - The UK's so-called "environment czar" last week raised the possibility of rationing air travel, limiting UK citizens to just a few vacation trips abroad by air per year in order to reduce the impact of carbon dioxide emissions.

"One always suspects with these half-baked proposals that the people who put them forward really intend them to apply to ordinary people, many of whom have only recently gained access to air travel, rather than to themselves," said FlyingMatters, a UK-based coalition of airlines, airports, aerospace manufacturers and other aviation- and tourism-related groups.

                Hey, with all of that snow, and if CO2 causes global warming,
                maybe the UK should consider producing more of it.
