Those crazy Europeans.
Long known for having access to desirable and fuel-efficient cars not available in the United States, the European Union may be about to propose a drastic measure that would finally end its supremacy.
According to new reports, the EU will announce plans to ban all fossil-fuel-powered cars in European cities by 2050. The detailed plan, due out Monday, will be outlined in the European Union’s Roadmap on Transport. Within 20 years, the EU plans to reduce fossil fuel traffic in urban areas by half.
Is this just another crazy proposal by the liberal Europeans, or is it a forward-thinking trend that will spread to other parts of the world?
