France to Ban Short Flights

The green agenda means sacrificing your freedom to the sanctimonious posturing of authoritarian bureaucrats who are a little nuts but not so crazy as to think their decrees will have any perceptible effect on the weather. An example from France:

French lawmakers voted late on Saturday to abolish domestic flights on routes than can be covered by train in under two-and-a-half hours, as the government seeks to lower carbon emissions even as the air travel industry reels from the global pandemic.

No worries; as Big Government hammers your kneecaps with one hand, it hands you a crutch paid for by someone else with the other:

The vote came days after the state said it would contribute to a 4 billion euro ($4.76 billion) recapitalisation of Air France, more than doubling its stake in the flagcarrier, to shore up its finances after over a year of COVID-19 travel curbs.

The travel ban bill now goes to the Senate.

Meanwhile, environmentalists are fuming because they want flights banned for routes you can take by train in 4 hours. When they get their way, the next demand will be 6 hours. Rest assured that Air France will continue to receive bailouts from taxpayers even after air travel has been banned altogether.

How long before similar restrictions are imposed in the USA? How long after that before they realize that trains also use energy and start restricting those too? It all depends on whether Democrats can push through HR1 and establish single-party moonbat rule.

Regardless, Climate Czar John Kerry will continue to fly by private jet to collect ecomoonbattery awards.
