The international organization Greenpeace is known as the organizer of a number of projects to improve the environmental situation on a global scale. One of the initiatives of the "greens" was the struggle to reduce emissions of internal combustion engines into the atmosphere. The activists told about successes in this field in an unusual, but very clear form.
According to a 2018 UN report, in the next ten years, humanity must halve greenhouse gas emissions to avoid an environmental catastrophe. According to Greenpeace, the world share of transport in air pollution is about 15.55%, and in Europe – up to 27%. The organization said that to create an environmentally sustainable transport system, European governments should legally ban the sale of new cars with gasoline and diesel engines by 2028.
The activists published the results of their “ecological struggle” in the form of a map. The countries whose governments have not yet announced the date of abandonment of vehicles with internal combustion engines (ICE) are marked in gray, the green ones are transferred to eco-friendly cars until 2030. Countries planning to join the action after 2030 are marked in yellow. The dots on the map indicate individual cities, whose authorities have already created restrictions on the use of vehicles with internal combustion engines or have announced the dates of refusal of such equipment on the territory of the settlement.
