The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Friday urged the government to reduce its use of oil.
The IEA recommends “car-free Sundays” (don’t drive to church), opt for public transit and work from home three days a week to reduce oil consumption.
Agence France-Presse reports:
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Friday called on governments to speed up measures to reduce global oil consumption in the months leading up to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
The IEA has called on the OPEC + group of oil-producing countries, led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, to help “relieve” the market, warning that the world is facing the biggest supply crisis in “decades”.
The IEA was hoping for “some good news that could help ease the pressure on the oil market” after the group’s next meeting on March 31. Rarely told a news conference to present a plan to reduce demand.
The 10 proposals proposed by the IEA could reduce oil consumption by 2.7 million barrels per day over the next four months in developed economies, it says.
The IEA estimates that the measures, combined with those of the French government, could reduce consumption by 2.7 million barrels per day in those countries, which currently use 44 to 45 million barrels per day.
The proposals, aimed primarily at transportation, include reducing speed limits, working from home three days a week, car-free Sundays, cheaper public transport and greater use of long-distance trains by plane.
The Biden regime is already urging Americans to use public transit and drive electric vehicles as gas prices rise.
Transportation Secretary Pete Butigig said Wednesday that the solution to high gas prices is “public transport.”
Butigig last week called on the poor to buy electric vehicles in response to high gas prices.
