Carbon dioxide shortage
Gas prices went up, so two fertilizer plants closed. CO2 is a by-product of those factories, so we have a CO2 shortage.
CO2 is used in food preservation and processing. Without CO2, we're going to have a meat, bread, cheese and salad shortage.
Christmas is coming, and the goose is getting fat. But we can't handle the poultry. Christmas might be a bit sparse this year.
No problem! We can import CO2 from Europe ... no, wait, we left the EU.
Our oven-ready government is divided between 1) there is not problem, and 2) this isn't a government problem. Businesses should find a solution. For example, they could import CO2 from Europe ... no, wait, we left the EU.
The whole climate change thing, is down to too much O2 in the atmosphere. So surely there are other places where CO2 is a by-product? Such as cement works, fossil fuel power stations?
