Whilst the UK public were distracted by stories of a football super-league and Kier Starmer being ejected from a Bristol pub, Boris Johnson chose the day to release stage two of his climate change plan.
A football super-league dominated headlines in all of the UK's media, even the Guardian, meaning that Boris Johnson's climate change plan went almost unnoticed and certainly unchallenged. As we have now come to expect from this government, the plan has not gone through parliament, but is yet another diktat imposed on the British people in the same way as the Coronavirus Act.
The prime minister announced that carbon emissions will be cut by 78% by 2035 - almost 15 years earlier than previously planned - claimed to be a 'world leading position' and now includes international aviation and shipping in a move to limit travel.
Incredibly, although the Climate Law is being implemented there is still no definitive evidence that Co2 is the climate switch, or that man is the biggest cause of it. Moreover, the UK's entire carbon emission is less than 1% of the world's total, meaning that the solution will have little or no effect on the problem. Yet the Government has committed the UK taxpayer to spending £50 Billion a year, and fundamentally impairing the lives of every one of its citizens in pursuit of it.
Details of the plan are still sketchy, but the BBC enthusiastically announced that the plan will mean that UK residents will encouraged to "use public transport or bicycles" and will have to "eat less red meat".
Keen observers will note that Boris Johnson's plans are lifted from the World Economic Forum's Great Reset. As we reported previously The WEF plan involves dramatically increasing the power of government through expansive new social programs like the Green New Deal and using vast regulatory schemes and government programs to coerce corporations into supporting it's agenda. The two justifications for the proposal, are the COVID-19 pandemic (the short-term justification) and the so-called “climate crisis” (the long-term justification).
