Ban use of petrol and diesel vehicles Closed 7:01pm - Friday 14 Jul 2017
Climate change is a serious concern. A large amount of GHG gas emissions is from the burning of fossil fuels for transport. To meet our moral obligations of reducing our GHG emissions we should ban the use of diesel and petrol vehicles.

I wouldn't tie this to climate change or any specific emissions reductions schemes/agreements but just to the basic fact that fossil fuels poison the planet and clean energy should be subsidised, readily available, and as heavily utilised as possible

I'd love to see this happen, but can't see how it could work for me personally in the next 6 months. A longer term aim - to give time to develop renewable infrastructure sounds fine
