The UNEP and the IEA launched last week an interesting initiative to halve the amount of oil consumed by cars by 2050. Even if this seem interesting as it due to cut by six billion barrels per year the oil consumption, I am wondering.
Indeed: even if the demand for cars is due to explode, environmental issues and scarcity of resources – oil, metal, water… – is due to pose serious problems by half century.
Various means will be used like energy efficiency or alternatives fuels. To learn out more on this iniative, please check out the press release and brochure.
