"the Climate and environment minister Isabella Lövin (MP) to ban the sale of fossil fuels - such as diesel and gasoline - about eleven years."
"According to the experts, it is quite possible. "
"– Yes, we believe that it is. There are technical and economic opportunities that did not previously exist, " says Ingrid Bonde, chair of the Climate council."
"Climate policy council is an independent authority that has the task to examine how the government is living up to its climate targets."
"They have in their new report studied the transport sector, which accounts for one third of Sweden's total emissions, and notes that the reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases in Sweden have lost momentum. "
"the Goal to reduce emissions from the transport sector by 70% by 2030 will be only half of today's pace."
"– It goes in the wrong direction. Sweden does not reach the climate goals as a strong political entity has been established in klimatlagen. It requires powerful additional political action, " says Ingrid Bonde, who is the chairman of the council."
"”Technically it is possible”"
"the Council has put forward a number of proposals to the government, among other things, that the climate must always be taken into account in policy proposals. In addition, you wish that the government decides on a final date for inclusion in the sale of fossil fuels, including diesel and petrol. "
"the Climate and environment minister Isabella Lövin (MP) said this week that she wants to put the date to 2030."
"– That miljöpartist I would like to see a ban of fossil fuels by 2030, but I need to get me the parliament for such a ban, said " to Aftonbladet on Wednesday."
"According to the experts in climate policy the council is fully possible. "
"– such A shift has challenges, but technically it is possible, " says Johan Kuylenstierna, executive vice president of the council."
"the Same way" says Ingrid Bonde:"
"– Yes, we believe that it is. There are technical and economic opportunities in the day which did not previously exist. Should you make such a big change requires planning and long-term. We strongly recommend that you look over this issue as soon as possible.nnHur would it be done? "
"– It is up to the government to determine exactly how they would do, we only give recommendations for which direction you should go. The actual decisions the government must take. "
