Paris To Ban All Non-Electric Cars By 2030

All I have to say about this is "Thank God I don't live in France!"

Paris is to ban all combustion-engine cars - including those fuelled by both diesel and petrol - by 2030. Authorities unveiled the plans on Thursday in a radical escalation of a strategy to cut carbon emissions in the world’s most-visited city. The French capital’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, had already announced plans to take diesel cars off the roads within a decade.

Meanwhile, China will increase production of gas / diesel car 10x in the same time frame.
