Britain will ban sales of new gasoline and diesel cars starting in 2040 as part of a bid to clean up the country's air.

Love to hear from some Vanners from across the pond on this one.

Ok, so say no new Internal combustion cars in Britain.
What about all the old ones?

Cheers!

London already has this in certain areas, do they not? And Paris? I think it's already happening at the city level over there...ad proposed here. The worlds-a-changin', good or bad. Glad I won't have to live in it. I'll likely be gone by 2040.

The Guardian has an informative article on the subject, and if you root around in this automotive industry site from the UK, it makes for interesting reading as well.

I hardly think that the government of Britain could be fooled by faulty scientific claims:
