Is the UK right in banning fossil fuel cars by 2040?
• United States
I just read about that Martin. I was imagining the future of the UK and how this will be. A very different future I see if this happens. It is definitely something to think about for sure as you have so rightly posed the question of the supply and demand of energy. Welcome to myLot as well.
UK is a bit late in Europe : Norway and Holland have decided to ban them in 2025, Germany in 2030, and France also in 2040. Many other EU countries are planning it. For the rest, in a country like Germany which has banned nuclear power, I think it just moves the problem from a place to another one, as a thermo plant is also an important source of pollution and the country will not produce enough clean energy by 2030 to avoid it.
