It is in effect: If there is a train and it’s less than a 2.5 hour trip, in France you can’t fly — unless of course, you own your own private jet, the most “polluting” kind of plane (according to the EcoWorriers). How does that make “carbon sense”?
Are we saving the planet, or just stopping the riff-raff from traveling?
It’s one rule for you, another for the Feudal overlords. …
The BBC omits the private jets from the graphic, because they don’t want you to notice. Putting private jets on the graph would blow the scale and shrink the rest to tiny lines.
No one says this better than Marc Morano: “You were warned! This is what a climate lockdown looks like. This is what the Great Reset looks like. The climate agenda demands you give up airline travel, car travel, cheap reliable energy, and plentiful food. Net Zero goals are now dictating vehicle shortages to force more people into mass transit. They’re going after your freedom of movement; they’re going after private car ownership, they’re going after everything it means to be a free person and turning it over to the administrative state.”
The BBC and others are mentioning that banning flights was first suggested at France’s Citizens Convention on Climate, as if Macron is just doing what the people wanted — but never forget that the people have been free all along to not-fly and take the train but they didn’t want to. The people of France were voting with their money and time, but now they can’t. …
There was no Citizens Convention on whether we can stop the storms with solar panels. No Convention on Holding Back the Sea. No one asks the citizens if it’s worth spending a trillion Euro to cool the world by one hundredth of a degree. It’s not democracy, and it’s not debate. The Bureaucrats only ask the citizens questions that make Big Government bigger.
It’s the Reality TV version of “Democracy” where 150 people pretend they speak for a nation while 65 million people get sidelined. Expect to see them take off everywhere. They are the perfect tool for Big-Government.
