Britain may "ration" air travel

Here is further evidence of the near universal acceptance of global warming theory by political leaders.

The leader of the Conservative Party in Britain, David Cameron, has announced plans to ration air travel.;jsessionid=RMRFRGZQPHDKFQFIQMGCFGGAVCBQUIV0?xml=/news/2007/03/11/ngreen11.xml

The proposals are rather vague at present but this could mean that all British citizens are restricted to one short haul flight a year. Thereafter flights will attract a potentially escalating level of penalty tax to discourage frequent flights.

With the doubts around this theory and the fact that Prime Minister Tony Blair said recently that even if Britain were to "shut down" (all factories, cars, planes, electricity use) in two years the industrial growth of China would have taken up the reduction in global CO2 output, seem to make this proposal policy an unnecessary and ill thought out assault on holiday makers and business travellers.
