Against pollution, Ireland wants to prohibit car movement

The Government of Ireland launched the Climate Action plan in Grangegorman on Monday (17), which aims to achieve the zero-level target of carbon gas emissions by 2050. With an emphasis on the transport sector, the proposal intends to prohibit the circulation of petrol and diesel cars in city centres by increasing taxes. Currently, 85% of the energy consumed in Ireland comes from fossil fuels.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said the government wants to encourage people and businesses to change their behaviour in order to combat climate change. With zero carbon target up to 2050, Varadkar said the country will seek to reduce the environmental damage that causes the greenhouse effect by 2% per year over the next 10 years.

The main proposals are: increased taxes for petrol and diesel vehicles, increased taxes for disposable plastics; To double the electricity tax in companies; Prohibition of petrol-and diesel-powered cars in city centres; Prohibition of gas and oil boilers; Modernisation of homes for sustainable systems paid with the tax of pedrial.
