Rumours of a BAN on fuel cars in the UK have come true! According tomedia reports, on November 18, local time, the United Kingdom officially announced the “green industrial revolution” plan, with a view to achieving the greenhouse gas “net zero emissions” target by 2050. Among them, the UK has proposed banning the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030 in a move aimed at meeting the country’s net zero-emissions climate target, a full decade ahead of schedule.
The UK government has already spent more than 12 billion pounds on the ten-point plan, which will create up to 250,000 jobs.
At the same time, the UK is preparing to co-host the Climate Ambition Summit, to be held on 12 December, and the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), to be held in 2021.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Environmental recovery and economic recovery must move forward simultaneously. As we look ahead to hosting the United Nations Climate Change Conference next year, I have embarked on an ambitious green industrial revolution that will change the way we live in the UK. “
Here’s what the British government has announced as its “Ten-Point Plan for the Green Industrial Revolution”:
First, offshore wind energy. Powering every home through offshore wind power will see the UK twice as much wind power to 40 gigs by 2030.
Second, hydrogen energy. By 2030, achieve a low-carbon hydrogen capacity of 5 ggW to supply industry, transportation, electricity and housing;
Third, nuclear energy. Develop nuclear energy into a source of clean energy, including large nuclear power plants and the development of the next generation of small, advanced nuclear reactors.
Fourth, electric vehicles. Stop selling new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030 (a decade ahead of schedule) and hybrid cars by 2035. It will also improve the UK’s national infrastructure to better support electric vehicles. The UK will become the first G7 country to decarbonize road transport.
Fifth, public transport, cycling and walking. Make cycling and walking a more popular way to get around and invest in zero-emission public transport for the future.
Sixth, Jet Zero (Jet Zero Emissions) Council and Green Shipping. Help decarbonization-difficult industries become greener and cleaner through zero-emissions research projects for aircraft and ships.
Seventh, residential and public buildings. Make homes, schools and hospitals greener, cleaner, warmer and more energy efficient;
Eighth, carbon capture. Become a world leader in the capture and storage of harmful gases in the environment and plan to eliminate 10 million metric tons of carbon dioxide by 2030.
Ninth, nature. Protect and restore the natural environment and plant 30,000 hectares of forest each year.
