New petrol and diesel cars sales to be banned in the UK after 2030 under Boris Johnson government’s green plan

IANS via Business Insider

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has outlined his 10 climate pledges for a green industrial revolution for 2,50,000 jobs and ending the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030.

Responding to the announcements, Mohamed Adow, Director of Nairobi-based energy and climate think tank, Power Shift Africa Director, told IANS in a statement, “Nowhere suffers more disproportionately from the climate crisis than Africa, so it’s good to see Boris Johnson stepping up and providing personal leadership on this issue.
“As hosts of the crucial UN climate summit next year in Glasgow it has a key role in securing a new era of global action to cut emissions and support those already suffering from climate breakdown. The eyes of the world will be on Britain.”
