Should we ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars?

The government is pressing ahead with its plans to do so by 2030 to reduce emissions. That's only 8 years away.

Is it a realistic target?

Pedal assist Ebikes are the answer for the majority of people.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NO!!!!! sod this.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
On the one hand yes we do need to stop using them (for our health at least). However every opportunity to expand and stabilise the grid has been missed. Even if everyone switched to ebikes and escooters for the majority of travel the grid wont cope.

It’s called political aspiration but not practical!
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Of course it's not realistic. I was told back in the 70's we'd run out of oil in 10 years. The climate changes on it's own and we won't make any difference. Talk to someone who has an alternative idea.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Totally unrealistic. People like this DJ guy talk rubbish,a prime example of the adage—A little knowledge is a dangerous thing
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Yes ban the sale of of new combustion engines. We can still use the old ones until they become unroadworthy, look after them and they'll last forever. Too many cars on our roads anyway
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
2nd hand car market will be massive. This plan is for new cars. People will stick with used cars until infrastructure sorted.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
It just means people will be running around in older cars for longer causing more pollution!
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No it’s needs to be reversed….it is not only an unrealistic target but it MUST CEASE being a target.
 
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Only if we redistribute all wealth across the nation to allow everyone to access have upper middle class morality on climate change.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
This is a joke right?
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
If it was about protecting the planet they would limit the production of new cars. It’s all about money so they will push for electric.
 
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Yes. People can always buy second hand cars.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
One thing ive always wondered is how would people living in HMOs charge their car.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No, this country has big ideas that rarely come to fruition. The infra structure is not in place and the technology is still developing.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Is this a wind up? 1. We don't create enough energy to all have ev cars. 2. Even if we did there isnt the infrastructure to deliver such amounts of electric. 3. Producing the batteries for all of these new vehicles is very carbon heavy. 4.There aren't the quantities of cobalt etc
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No. But we should start to put road tax and insurance onto all cyclists. And any cyclist riding on a public footpath should have their bikes seized and sold.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
yes if its good for the planet and we can produce enough electricity at a reasonable price due to the e-cars costing a lot more than a second hand micra 🚗
 
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Why not build Ev quads or small city evs which could be rented at hubs etc will be coming at some point but needs speeding up
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
We don't have the infrastructure, also it seems like you haven't heard about the energy price crisis currently going on. What a dumb question
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Do you remember when the government tried to introduce age verification on people accessing adult material on the internet? Some things are too difficult to control. We should be looking at alternative transport options. Safer walking and cycling options and safe cycle parking.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No because it’s all a ploy to get us to pay more money
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Not quick enough. But the infrastructure need's to be quicker. Maybe if the rich moaned a bit louder about it,it would happen overnight! I don't drive btw. Every single parking space is gonna need it's own. Start with car parks & get them to put there hand in there own pocket
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Absolutely insane
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No, not everyone has the ability to charge a car at their home. I don’t have a drive and if l manage to park anywhere close to my home in the back lane behind my street it’s a good day
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Why are you always trying to ban things jeremy?
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Yep, totally, it is not as if there will sudenly cease to be any ICE vehicles on the road overnight!
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
they should, bring it falward to 2025 and stop messing about
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Electric cars need to be more affordable. I am completely out priced to even thing about . The used electric cars are not much cheaper.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
How can people afford too drive electric cars .
 
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Who can afford to run an electric car at todays prices, I’ll fill up my diesel tank with old cooking oil whilst those who think electric is the way forward will be trying yo@pay for a new car battery 😂🤣😂🤣
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Only if you wish to kill another industry and its work force so you can then blame Brexit for something else.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No . As a disabled person who lives in an apartment I couldn’t charge it at home. Petrol works for me I do very few miles just local hospital mostly
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Not a chance of sticking to a green agenda with the Tory Party ruining the country.
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
maybe an 8 year phase out of these fuels rather then a ban, there are still some people who aren't convinced of fully electric motors plus there STILL isn't enough charge points, my local fuel station has no charge points very few have in Watford, we're not ready!!!
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Time you framed sustainable initiatives as saving the planet rather than damaging our precious comforts!
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Why is it always *should we ban" with you people
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
Make them cheaper and I'll have one, atm they are tooooo expensive
 
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
We should do it sooner!! This will force investment in the charging infrastructure and battery technology. Get rid of oil now!!!
