The recent VW “discovery” (or dieselgate) should have made most governments realize that moving to electric propulsion is the solution for meeting their emissions goals reductions. Reading parts of the letter that Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault Nissan, wrote to EU policymakers, warning them against actions that could hurt diesel makes us wander how committed Mr. Ghosn and his counterparts are to electric propulsion.
According to the IMF, fossil fuels are subsidized globally to the tune of $5.3 trillion annually. So, without these subsidies, are fossil fuels competitive with electric propulsion?
To date, 96 cities announced that they are quitting fossil fuels and moving toward 100% renewable energy. Isn’t it time your city be encouraged to do the same?
