Here are some thoughts on the news that the government will ban diesel and petrol cars from 2040 in the UK.
I am very much in favour of cleaner fuel…
My fear is that the UK and European governments may not know enough about cleaner technologies. They will force car companies down the electric route when there might be something even better in the future that will then not get developed.
Why are so many people driving diesel cars anyway?? Oh yes…because the government encouraged everyone to drive them!! Now 20 years down the line the government blame diesel drivers for pollution?!
Also, the following questions need answers:
Where exactly is all this electricity coming from? It can’t be from coal? That’s more pollution?
How about lorries and trains? Battery powered too?
How about Hydrogen cars?
