The government said it would consider the committee's findings.
In its report, the committee said: “In the long-term, widespread personal vehicle ownership does not appear to be compatible with significant decarbonisation.” [...]
The AA said the committee had underestimated the power of new technology to solve pollution in cars.
But the MPs are demanding improvements in public transport, walking and cycling, which benefit health as well as the climate.
They also criticise the government’s recent policies on the costs of transport.
So, more MPs come to cycling as part of the best response to climate change, government weakly says it will "consider" it and the AA shows its true anti-activity/pro-car colours when push comes to shove. Will anything change?
