Wall Street Journal: The goal is buried in a briefing paper released last month called “The Urban Mobility Scorecard Tool: Benchmarking the Transition to Sustainable Urban Mobility.” It points out that more than two-thirds of the world’s population will be urban by 2050. If we are to meet their needs and achieve the climate goals of the Paris Agreement, the report recommends “electrification, public transport and shared mobility.”
This will mean a lot fewer cars: “Reduce vehicles from a potential 2.1 billion to 0.5 billion.” That is a radical drop with fewer than 30 years to do it. But this, it says, “could slash emissions from passenger vehicles by 80% compared to a business-as-usual scenario—reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by 3.9 billion tons a year.”
World Economic Forum’s May 2023 Global New Mobility Coalition ‘briefing paper’ “in collaboration with Visa” – The forward was co-written by Douglas Sabo, the Chief Sustainability Officer with Visa and the WEF’s Jeff Merritt who is the “Head of Urban Transformation” at WEF.
Marc Morano comments: “The Great Car Reset has arrived. Our transportation system is being intentionally collapsed; (and our freedom of movement is being stripped away) EVs to be forced upon YOU without a vote! This is the planned rationing of vehicles. An Australian bank is announcing it’s not going to give financing for loans to anyone buying a gas-powered car. The World Bank has now announced it wants to set a timetable to stop the funding for gas-powered cars. Gas station bans will create gas availability shortages.
