Project Syndicate, a media outlet that frequently features commentary from globalist thought leaders like George Soros and Bill Gates, floated the idea of a “climate lockdown,” entailing a ban on meat and restrictions on private-vehicle use.
Mariana Mazzucato, a Professor at University College London, penned a piece for the outlet entitled “Avoiding A Climate Lockdown.” In the nearly 1,200-word piece, Mazzucato hints at the likely possibility of a lockdown to “tackle a climate emergency”:
“As COVID-19 spread earlier this year, governments introduced lockdowns in order to prevent a public-health emergency from spinning out of control. In the near future, the world may need to resort to lockdowns again – this time to tackle a climate emergency.”
Insisting climate change will “require dramatic interventions,” the article insists a government-imposed climate change lockdown would entail a ban on meat, limit private-vehicle use and more:
“Under a “climate lockdown,” governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban the consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling.”
To Mazzucato, the only way to avoid this lockdown is to launch a full scale “climate revolution,” including a complete overhaul of capitalism.
