UK Council Admits Ultimate Goal Is Banning All Cars

A local government group in the West Midlands, England, earlier this year released its “net zero” plan to deal with global warming over the next two decades. Listed among the plan’s final steps is the elimination of private ownership of automobiles — even those that are fully electric-powered. The plans were revealed as part of a public consultation that ended Thursday. “Car journeys are on the wrong trajectory in this region,” the document explains. “It is not practical to transfer this use over to electric vehicles… If this carries through, by the time we reach 2041, a majority of people will not own cars… All other journeys are completed by walking, cycling, scoots, and use of buses, Metro and trains.”
