Citing the commitment to the French plan to remove all polluting vehicles from the roads, Britain will ban all diesel and gasoline (petrol) cars beginning in the year 2040. Britain fears that rising levels of nitrogen oxide pose a major risk to public health.
And since humans are too ignorant to make their own decisions on what’s best for them, other humans calling themselves “the government” have decided to take action. At some point, hopefully, humanity is going to wake up and realize that “authority” is an illusion and there are no orders if there are no order followers. But until then, governments will continue to impose ridiculous rules and laws and steal the money of the very people they pretend to towant help. But it’s for the false narrative and fabricated data that is global warming, so the sheep willingly submit.
The government warned that the move, which will also take in hybrid vehicles, was needed because of the unnecessary and avoidable impact that poor air quality was having on people’s health. Ministers believe it poses the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK, costing up to £2.7bn in lost productivity in one recent year. –The Guardian
The government only wants taxes to be considered as a last resort (hold the laughter here), fearing a backlash against any move that punishes motorists. As if an all out ban on vehicles doesn’t somehow punish motorists…
“Poor air quality is the biggest environmental risk to public health in the UK and this government is determined to take strong action in the shortest time possible,” a government spokesman said.“That is why we are providing councils with new funding to accelerate development of local plans, as part of an ambitious £3bn programme to clean up dirty air around our roads.”
The final plan, which was due by the end of July, comes after a draft report that environmental lawyers described as “much weaker than hoped for”. The environment secretary (yes, that’s a thing), Michael Gove, will be hoping for a better reception when he publishes the final document on Wednesday following months of “legal” government nonsense. Imagine if the market was truly free. We’d have no need for fossil fuels anymore because people wouldn’t be getting killed for creating cars that run on water or magnets, but don’t tell the statists. You’ll just be labeled a crazy conspiracy theorist anyway.
A briefing on parts of the plan, seen by the Guardian, repeats the heavy focus on the steps that can be taken to help councils improve air quality in specific areas where emissions have breached EU thresholds. Measures to be urgently brought in by local authorities that have repeatedly breached EU rules include retrofitting buses and other public transport, changing road layouts and altering features such as roundabouts and speed humps. Reprogramming traffic lights will also be included in local plans, with councils being given £255m to accelerate their efforts. Local emissions hotspots will be required to layout their plans by March 2018 and finalise them by the end of the year. A targeted scrappage scheme is also expected to be included. –The Guardian
Government worshipers and their counterparts in the global warming religion hope that the centerpiece of Wednesday’s strategy will be the plan to ban diesel and petrol sales completely by 2040, in line with Emmanuel Macron’s efforts across the Channel. Basically, they are cheering for their own oppression.
But don’t tell a statist that. You’ll be subjected to a failed emotional rant full of cognitive dissonance (how DARE you defile their religion of government and global warming) all while enduring their curse words that they believe hurt with the same fervor they use to worship the very entity stealing their freedom.
