UK To Ban Petrol Vehicles By 2030 — Another Blow For Nigeria’s Oil Revenue by gaetano: 3:44pm On Nov 18, 2020

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says new cars and vans powered by petrol and diesel will not be sold in the UK from 2030.

According to the BBC, Johnson said it is part of “a green industrial revolution” to tackle climate change and to create jobs.

The 10-point plan is to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles and investing in grants to help buy cars and charge-point infrastructure.

The plan also includes producing enough offshore wind to power every home, developing the first town heated entirely by hydrogen by the end of the decade, provision for large nuclear plant and developing the next generation of small and advanced nuclear reactors.

The plan is aimed at putting the UK on track to meet its goal of net zero emissions by 2050 and to create 250,000 jobs.

It also includes making buildings greener, warmer and more energy-efficient, and installing 600,000 heat pumps (low-energy electrical devices for warming homes) every year by 2028 as well as making cycling and walking more attractive ways to travel and investing in zero-emission public transport for the future.

“My 10-point plan will create, support and protect hundreds of thousands of green jobs, whilst making strides towards net-zero by 2050,” Johnson reportedly said.

“Our green industrial revolution will be powered by the wind turbines of Scotland and the North East, propelled by the electric vehicles made in the Midlands and advanced by the latest technologies developed in Wales, so we can look ahead to a more prosperous, greener future.

The UK will host the COP26 (conference of party) international climate summit in Glasgow in 2021. The conference was initially scheduled to take place in 2020 but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Norway, Israel, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden and Singapore have also made plans to phase out internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles — with the earliest abolishment date being 2025.

The Nigerian economy, which relies heavily on the revenue generated from crude oil exports, will be affected by the development as European countries are the largest importers of Nigeria’s crude oil.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted negatively on global oil demand early in the year, leading to the collapse of prices across the world.

As of November 2, the price of Brent crude dropped by 3.43 percent to $36.64 per barrel after some European countries imposed another round of lockdown to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The Nigerian economy is projected to enter its second recession in five years owing to low oil prices.

That is good for everyone.
You guys should stop shouting the fall of Nigeria when there is discussion on possible shift from oil to something else. If your claim that Nigeria is Rich in all other aspect aside oil, then this is the time to be happy and shout the raising of a great nation who's greatness had been trapped in the said oil that is control by few powerful individuals.
Those shouting Nigeria will perish when there is shift from oil are actually the true enemies of the masses.
If we can survive lockdown, then don't come here threatening any Nigerian with electric car and how it will affect oil negatively.

The biggest losers will be the Niger delta region. The north will fully embrace agriculture and their gold full time. The Niger delta still have a polluted sea, fishing is one of their old way of life and the FG has refused to address its environmental problems, instead they continue drilling and causing more land pollution.

Gas is the future and i urge the indigenous people to invest in gas. And since the economy is already collapsing and the fulani oil cartel refused to address the need of the Niger delta, I suggest you locate the pipes heading out of the region and blow it up. This people just one chop and drop a dead country by 2023.

Don't mind lazy ones who see nothing but failure in everything. While you are thinking of the opportunity that will be open when one closes, they can't think anything further, their brain go blank once one door closes

With one million mile battery or sixteen years life span for Tesla batteries, one can authoritatively say that fossil fuel is dead.

This will definitely improved upon real soon. Our leaders are still enmeshed in tribal politics of oil.

UK isnt so big and just the size of Kogi + Delta + Edo. They can afford to ditch crude for vehicular use but not for industrial use.

Recharging stations will still be powered by crude byproducts. They remain cheaper and profit oriented charge stations will always go for the cheaper alternatives.

South south did not even enjoy the oil, so whether oil or no oil, it does not affect them. Those that depended on the oil more (rest of Nigeria) will be more affected.
They are already scrambling on how to pay salaries with the decrease from oil sales. Did you hear South south complaining?

Battery problems, charging fees, increase in electricity tariff on more usage. due to the huge diversification to EV, Crude and fuel might become so cheap it becomes a better alternative again..

It's still same circle..

The way black people dey think sha!! Any small thing you're running away from Nigeria/Africa

Every country at some point has faced serious problems, Imagine if Europeans had ran away from their various countries during their hard times and not stay back and work things out, Would you be thinking of going to Europe today??

Or do you people think one angel will fall from heaven to develop Africa for you so you can move back?? LOL

Well, I remember Black People brains works anti-clockwise, No wonder white people call us monkeys!!
