Some climate change experts say World War II-style rationing in developed countries may be needed to bring down carbon emissions to fight against global warming.
Scientists meeting in Cancun, Mexico at the Sixteenth "Conference of the Parties," or COP16, say that unless emissions are reduced in the next 10 years, there will be a significant temperature increase. The summit is a part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
According to the London Daily Telegraph, scientists recommend limiting the use of electricity and stopping economic growth in developed countries.
But critics argue that there's no reason for governments to intervene. They point out that there's too much evidence against global warming for such drastic measures.
Most analysts do not have high expectations that the summit will accomplish any concrete results.
According to The New American, the Copenhagen summit last year was almost a total failure in the eyes of global-warming alarmists.
The "climate" crusade's decline has only accelerated since then.
