Believe it or not, Germany’s legislature has passed a resolution to allow only zero-emission vehicles, which excludes all internal combustion engines (ICE), beginning in 2030.
Germany’s Spiegel Magazin reported this morning that the country’s top legislative body was able to reach a bi-partisan agreement that hopes to allow only zero-emission vehicles on EU roads in 14 years. For the resolution to be instituted across Europe, it will have to be approved by the EU. But according to Forbes, “German regulations traditionally have shaped EU and UNECE regulations.”
German Lawmakers Vote to Ban the Internal Combustion Engine
If this isn’t enough to get the breakup of the EU really rolling, I don’t know what else could.
The impetus for This move by Germany was the recent AGW inspired Paris Treaty which obama unilaterally signed, purporting to bind the US to its provisions.
The underlying cause for this apparent madness is, of course, the recent Paris Climate Treaty talks which President Barack Obama signed us up for on September 3rd.
One thing we can be sure of if clinton wins the presidency is that this so called treaty will go forward as if it were given the consent of the US Senate. And then who knows, we too can look forward to no more ICE cars.
