It seems it had to come to this: people who blindly support the globalist establishment’s climate policies may have to first witness mass death in order to get a grip on reality. All the reports of ongoing food- and energy shortages will not phase the common person until they themselves are freezing and starving because of “climate justice” as covid lockdowns are being transferred into “climate lockdowns”.
From the Dailymail: Homeowners will have to put up with central heating that is cooler by 10 degrees C if Britain is to hit climate change targets
-“gas boilers will be banned in all new-build homes within the next three years. “
-“heat pumps will be installed mandatory to suck energy from the air and use it to heat homes and are more efficient than using fossil fuel technologies.”
(Why hasn’t anyone thought of that before? Just ban heating with energy and heat with heat pumps instead. It’s magic. What they really mean is no more gas and oil, only electricity. Electricity comes from coal and nuclear, which they decided will be banned as well in the next few years. Renewable energies cover only a few percent of the power supply and will be used for electric cars (as combustion engine cars are banned too). All of this means no more heating at all for poor people within a few years, starting now.
To be exact, when they say the heating is 10 degrees cooler does not mean rooms will be 10 degrees cooler from the start, only the radiators. But even a 3 degrees cooling of the actual average room temperature will kill thousands at the start and then millions as the infrastructure collapse will snowball out of control quickly.

The UK government will set the world’s most ambitious climate change target into law to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 compared to 1990 levels, it was announced today (Tuesday 20 April).
In line with the recommendation from the independent Climate Change Committee, this sixth Carbon Budget limits the volume of greenhouse gases emitted over a 5-year period from 2033 to 2037, taking the UK more than three-quarters of the way to reaching net zero by 2050.
Funny. For ~5 years my house thermostat was set at 10 to 20 Celsius for the Canadian prairie winter, but after a van accident 3 years ago, its been at 13-15 Celsius. 10 Celsius is “invigorating”, and gives the best sleep ever (often with a balaclava, usually with a fine-cotton quilt made by mother). During the day, I put on a heavy shirt, and after an hour or so at the computer keyboard, wear a cheap thin cotton glove and a light hoodie. Some 10-20 years ago, I went 2.5 years without a car, and used a bicycle, which is extremely dangerous in Ottawa’s snow-banks-at-the-side-of-the-road with buses passing in streets drastically narrower from as-yet-un-collected snow. Car sharing is a social lobotomy, but it was livable, perhaps if we are in a perpetual-rolling lock-down from fear-of-living, social lobotomies will be the norm, so car-sharing will seem fun & adventuresome. I don’t do this for “environmentalism (which, for the most part, I dislike and disrespect), but because life’s a buzz, and it rocks at the edge. If I have to put cow-dung-in-stove heated rocks in socks to keep from freezing in my bed at night, like my parents and grandparents did, then we will mostly survive, but as the article above says, what used to be fun and trivial, becomes much more of a challenge with age.
