Lord Turner suggests flight rationing

In early February 2009 the Telegraph, the Daily Mail and the Financial Times Westminster weblog all carried stories reporting that the UK Government's Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), Lord Turner, has raised the possibility that in future flying be rationed in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

On 1 December 2008 the CCC published its first report on Building a low-carbon economy – the UK’s contribution to tackling climate change. Chapter 8 covers International aviation and shipping.

The CCC is now writing an Aviation Report to be published in December 2009.
