Flying once in a lifetime???

Yes, so-called experts in Australia are calling for the drastic reduction of the use of cars and planes...
OVERSEAS trips may become a once-in-lifetime experience and car travel needed to be cut by 80 per cent if we have any hope of avoiding "dangerous" climate change, experts say.
Energy experts from Monash University said the carbon emission standards recommended by the government-hired Professor Ross Garnaut would not be possible if Australia’s love affair with cars and planes continued.

“The car is doomed,” Associate Professor Damon Honnery said.

“People are going to have to fundamentally change the way they think about travel and make much more use of non-motorised travel such as cycling and walking.”

His colleague, Dr Patrick Moriarty, said air travel needed to be reduced by the year 2050 in order to meet the emission targets recommended by Prof Garnaut.

“An overseas trip might become a once-in-a-lifetime experience rather than an annual event,” Dr Moriarty said.

In 2006 the "experts" ere saying that eastern Australia was going to dry up and blow away, cities would have to be abandoned for lack of water, all cased by global warming of course. Since the start of 2007 eastern Australians has been having severe weather related problems: how to prevent themselves from being washed into the sea from the floods. Could it be mother nature is trying to give the alarmists a hint?

Haven't you heard, the climate is getting cooler according to NASA and other enviromentalists. I guess we wen ... but now we have to put more carbon into the air to warm us up or another ice age. Go figure.

course the once in a lifetime thing won't apply to the Gore's, Clowny's and BoneO's of the world right?

Watson. The game's afoot.

The climate s"h"ell game, that is.

Thank God we have our intellectual and moral superiors to guide on the way to living in caves...again.
