Sunak's Net Zero surrender is bad, but the previous plan wasn't enough. When it comes to cars, it isn't enough to just replace every petrol & diesel with an EV.

That would still give us air pollution (from tyres), congestion and road deaths.

Instead we need more e-bikes, public transport, care clubs and car hire.

Lots of people will still need to own a car - that's fine. But many won't, and they'll save money as a result.

A lifespan of a car is around 10 to 20, an e-bike is around 2 to 5 years max.
Will e-bikes create more pollution?
Tires pollution and toxic batteries materials, etc.
