There is indeed no need for you to worry; but don't you worry for them?
I agree we need to do something about pollution, but if every car became electric overnight or if everyone used their bikes in future, it would not make any difference.

It's the big polluters like China and India we need to tackle, not the humble car.

The politicians need to get together instead of fighting each other and find some suitable alternatives to electric vehicles. I say again, what has happened to the hydrogen car?

ATM the only alternative is Neuclear. That will cost billions and take decades.
Oh, I know Solar and Wind power are not the whole answer. That said, some of the problems with unreliability can be reduced by the use of batteries.

Personally, I'd like to see us looking at Nuclear again. I know we have existing Nuclear stations, but I think we need to look at either upgrading our existing ones or building new ones.

Re: Petrol & diesel vehicles ban (2040).

Why would you build one in London ?

We dont build power stations in the middle of cites.

Anywhere in the country, we do have the technology to distribute

People who "dont want" appear to have a choice, no transport, or more power stations, electricity isnt generated by magic.

Btw, whats wrong with your shift key sentences start with capital letters.

But that is the problem is we say lets build it but when the nimby's realise its going to be built on their holy ground they get out their placards and start waving them about angrily.
