Reduce the recreational consumption of fossil fuels

Additional Information

In our lifetime our extravagant use of fossil fuels will be regarded as being irresponsible bordering on reckless.

There could hardly be a stronger demonstration of our commitment to reduce fossil fuel consumption and its associated green house gas emission than a policy of reducing leading to banning the recreational use of fossil fuels.

Initially, the Government should legislate to reduce the consumption of fossil fuel within 5 years in three convenient divisions:
1. Air: For mico-lights, light-aircraft etc.
2. Sea: For jet skis and motor launches etc.
3. Land: For quad bikes, motocross and recreational 4x4s.
Commercial recreational activities should be preserved for the short term but a significant green tax should be levied if they intend to continue trading beyond the 10 year point.

Eventually, legislation should be considerd for all recreational fuel burning.
