France wants to phase out diesel fuel


Recommended Posts

Nov 28 (Reuters) - France wants to gradually phase out the use of diesel fuel for private passenger transport and will put in place a system to identify the most polluting vehicles, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Friday.

Next year, the government will launch a car identification system that will rank vehicles by the amount of pollution they emit, Valls said in a speech. This will make it possible for local authorities to limit city access for the dirtiest cars.

I think the cars which, cause pollution will be removed and let the good cars stay which are less harmful to the environment and good for the country and people. Diesel vehicles, can be louder and noisy and causes the air to be polluted and also can cause our health to be affected and cause breathing problems to happen. This may bring some changes and debates on both sides, as this may bring good results and changes for the better or bad results.

CNG is not a green fuel. Green(er) maybe, but it is still a fossil fuel.

In the case of Seattle, 65% of all CNG stations use BIO-CNG. Cows do make quality gas for use in auto's. So a Natural Green Fuel. :P
