Paris has just announced some great news when it comes to its future carbon footprint – France’s capital authorities plan to ban all gasoline and diesel-fueled cars from the city. The move signals rapid progress in the plan to clean the area of gas-powered cars and, instead, introduce electric vehicles – and it is set to come into effect by the year 2030.
As reported by Business Insider, the ban was announced in Paris City Hall on October 12, 2017. According to the statement, France set a target date for 2040 to get rid of all cars dependent on fossil fuels – and in order to make that deadline, large cities would have to make the transition even sooner.
The ban on gas-powered cars is a huge step in the direction of minimizing pollution, especially since it is about to be introduced in one of the most beloved and most visited by tourists city in the world – and, hopefully, its example will soon be followed by many cities from all around the world.
