Britain delays ban on new petrol and diesel cars to 2035

  • Britain has delayed the ban on new petrol and diesel cars until 2035, which is a major change to the government's approach to achieving net zero by 2050. This move, along with potential delays to bans on new gas boilers, is seen as a dilution of key net-zero climate pledges.
  • The ruling Conservative Party's Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, is facing opposition from members of his own party who oppose any weakening of green targets. Despite this, Sunak insists that his approach to green policies is pragmatic. However, several experts warn that weakening UK climate policies could negatively impact economic growth and make households poorer and colder.
  • The delay in implementing green policies in the UK puts the country at risk of falling behind other global leaders in renewable energy and electric vehicles, such as the US, China, EU, and India. This could have long-term implications for the UK's future economy.
