H.O.C. table controversial 'air rationing' plans
A report by Velham Jedley
The Hephaestan Oxygen Company, a semi-autonomous body charged with maintaining Hephaestus' shaky oxygen supply, have revealed new plans to implant all residents with 'aerometers', which register the amount of oxygen consumed by an individual, who would then be charged accordingly. Visitors to the planet would be obliged to pay a 'consumption charge'. Pressure groups were up in arms at the news yesterday, but H.O.C. chairman Diveset Opes shrugged and said 'It's the only way to go'.
