The EU is moving to ban air flights from landing unless the airlines engage in carbon trading. These headlines from climate change skeptic sites highlight the dictatorial aspect of the move:

Revelation 13 describes a dictatorial governmental beast and the people ask the question in verse 4;

The definition of the Greek word for war translated here is:

  1. to war, carry on war
  2. to fight
