Nanny State Banning Cars

The EU is now considering banning cars from cities across Europe and forcing journeys over 186 miles long to be made by rail in an effort to cut CO2 emissions. (Joe Biden will certainly like the forced rail use.) It makes one wonder what measures the EU would take if terrorism was treated with such urgency. Unfortunately, that would not be politically correct and it would offend terrorists.

From The Telegraph, via Drudge

The European Commission on Monday unveiled a “single European transport area” aimed at enforcing “a profound shift in transport patterns for passengers” by 2050. The plan also envisages an end to cheap holiday flights from Britain to southern Europe with a target that over 50 per cent of all journeys above 186 miles should be by rail…Top of the EU’s list to cut climate change emissions is a target of “zero” for the number of petrol and diesel-driven cars and lorries in the EU’s future cities…directives and new taxation of fuel would be used to force people out of their cars and onto “alternative” means of transport.
