More welfare for cars planned. #kickcarsoffwelfare

Plan to switch cars from oil to electric is a cover for massive #autosprawlsubsidy. Cars generate sprawl and growth regardless of what they burn.
Carlos Ghosn: It's time to get serious about getting the carbon out of our cars: "
The number of vehicles on the world’s roads will more than double from about 800 million today to more than 2 billion by 2050. We cannot continue to rely on fossil fuels to power those vehicles if we are going to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
...Just as significantly, governments around the world are helping stimulate EV demand with various incentives, from cash for trading in old, polluting cars, to free parking and EV access to bus and high-occupancy lanes. The industry is committed to advocating for these and other policies that place a priority on greenhouse gas reduction, including better urban planning that reduces travel growth."
