Are you ready for WW2-style energy rationing?"

A government committee report in the UK proposes a scheme to ration energy consumption by individuals. The measure is presented as a way to decrease greenhouse gas emmissons and so reduce global warming.

The rationing program would be expensive to implement and administer and politically unpopular.

The article proposes that rationing would be politically possible only if the dangers of global warming became dramatically evident.
