Rishi Sunak delays ban on new gas and diesel cars by 5 years in contentious climate shift

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced Wednesday that he’s delaying by five years a ban on new gas and diesel cars that had been due to take effect in 2030, watering down climate goals that he said imposed “unacceptable costs” on ordinary people. The move angered green groups, opposition politicians and large chunks of U.K. industry, but was welcomed by some in the governing Conservative Party who chafe at the expense of ending the country’s reliance on fossil fuels.

    Delaying the transition to electric vehicles could have implications for the UK's ability to meet emission reduction targets.

              Rishi Sunak's decision to delay the ban on new gas and diesel cars by 5 years is a disappointing setback for climate action.

                  @saustine_lusanzu The number of climate warnings that Sunak has received is very alarming.

                      This one will slow the transition to greener cars.
