2008 is the year of the control freak society. We now inhabit a world where there is no longer debate over whether something should be banned or not, there simply exists debate over what should be banned next.
The latest evil earth-killing product that needs to be banned forever is the outdoor heater:
- Outdoor heaters that keep smokers warm outside pubs and clubs could be banned as part of the battle against climate change, costing the hospitality industry £250million in lost trade.
- Euro-MPs are expected to back a resolution calling on the European Commission to set a timetable for abolishing goods with low energy-efficiency ratings.
The heaters have become even more popular in the UK since smoking was banned indoors.
Despite the fact that the effect these things actually have has been described by climate change experts as “very minimal” and “almost non-existent”, the EU has decided it needs to put a stop to them NOW.
“What constitutes a waste of energy is always going to be open to debate but it is important that the public is properly educated about environmental impacts in order to make informed decisions on their everyday activities.” Dr Eric Johnson, National Expert Reviewer for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) stated.
“Informed decisions” do not come into the equation if we are told what we can and cannot do by a group of unelected bureaucrats.
Other control freak measures on the horizon and in the pipeline include:
