The idea of rationing as a means of "fighting climate change" is being touted around and Paul Homewood has put a piece on his blog here:
Climate Scientists Want Rationing To Fight Climate Change | NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT (wordpress.com)
Personally I think this is something that will cause a lot of outrage among the public. It will be hard to convince people that they should endure rationing when there is no actual shortage of the items. They will also be aggrieved to see that these measures are not adopted in other nations. So any government that brought in rationing would immediately become very unpopular. In a democracy this would normally lead to another political party adopting a policy to lift the rationing. This is why I doubt any government would dare to introduce such a measure.
