This is an excellent sample of how the multitudinous enforcers of Obamacare, if it is upheld, will surely improve your (and the planet’s) life.
An 83 year-old British woman was ordered by her National Health Service kapos to find a closer surgical practice because the two miles she drove to her old practice, where she had been going for 30 years, made her carbon footprint too large.
The Telegraph reported that ”
Avril Mulcahy, 83, was told to address the “green travelling issues” over her journeys from her home in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, to the West Road Surgery. The surgery wrote to Mrs Mulcahy, telling her to register with a new GP within 28 days.
The letter said: “Our greatest concern is for your health and convenience but also taking into consideration green travelling issues. Re: Carbon footprints and winter weather conditions, we feel it would be advisable for patients to register at surgeries nearer to where they live.”
Needless to say, Mrs. Mulcahy is stressed out and feels ill-used, but it is a sure thing that Gaia has breathed a sigh of relief, and that’s really important.
