DescriptionPreventative measure to mitigate climate change?

Climate lockdowns will strip you of "freedoms and everyday liberties".[1]

They are undermined by "misinformation promoted by climate change deniers".


In February 2022, an article in The Hill mentioned the phrase "climate lockdown", referencing the widespread COVID-19/Lockdown.[2]


Oxford County Council made a "dystopian" video explaining the traffic filters and condemning "conspiracy theorists"

Oxfordshire County Council voted for climate lockdown trial in Oxford City starting 2024, with movement by car between the zones restricted to 100 trips per yea [3]

The city will be divided into six "15 minute neighbourhoods" via traffic filtering, and a county council travel chief has insisted the controversial plan would go ahead whether people liked it or not.[4]

The Oxford Mail attacked "conspirationists".[5] The AFP called it a "county council approved traffic scheme", not a "climate lockdown trial", as online misinformation has circulated.[6]

The £6.5 million trial will create "climate zones" on six inner-city roads in Oxford - meaning ANPR cameras will fine motorists £70 if they use them without council permission. Cllr Liz Leffman, leader of Oxfordshire County Council and Cllr Duncan Enright, Cabinet Member for Travel and Development Strategy made a video explaining the scheme, which was criticised as 'dystopian' and was likened to a 'hostage video'.[7]
