To Great Applause, Paris Announces Combustion Engine Ban by 2030

13 October 2017, 09:22 | Winifred Adams

Paris city authorities said Thursday they aimed to phase out the use of diesel cars by the time the French capital hosts the Olympics in 2024, and petrol cars by 2030.

"This is about planning for the long term with a strategy that will reduce greenhouse gases", said Christophe Najdovski, head of transport policy in the administration of mayor Anne Hidalgo. "Transport is one of the main greenhouse gas producers.so we are planning an exit from combustion engine vehicles, or fossil-energy vehicles". Paris has also instituted temporary vehicle bans inside the city in response to pollutant levels in the area, causing some irritation from city dwellers who have to commute by auto.

The Netherlands is also banning ICE-powered cars by 2030, aiming to cut emissions in the country by 49 percent over the next 13 years.

While fossil fuel emissions affect all of France and, indeed, the whole planet, Paris is a hotspot for particle pollution.

Trump warns federal help for Puerto Rico not open-ended
Ricardo Rosselló said in a news conference Thursday that he called the White House looking for clarification on Trump's tweets. While MLB has been doing what it could to lend a hand to Puerto Rico, Trump hasn't appeared to be all that eager to help.

The climate plan will be submitted to the Council of Paris for a vote in November.

In July, France's environmental minister Nicolas Hulot announced that the country planned to ban the sale of petrol- or diesel-fueled cars by 2040.

Many other cities in the world are considering similar moves and China, the world's biggest polluter after the United States, recently announced that it would soon be seeking to get rid of combustion-engine cars too.

Paris has seen significant amounts of rising air pollution in the last few years. A few months later, Paris converted the lower quays along the Seine from motorways into promenades for pedestrians and cyclists. Nitrogen dioxide levels dropped 25 percent, and noise levels dropped an average of 20 percent. Parts of the city have "no-car zones", and the city even hosts an entire day when cars aren't permitted within the 40-square-mile area that Paris covers.
