UNEP: Used Cars To Be ‘Rapidly Phased Out’ During Transition To Electric

Please Share This Story!
The United Nations is targeting used cars in transition to Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy. Used cars are deemed to be ‘unsustainable’ and a rising threat to the transition to alternative energy, even though the Third World depends almost exclusively on used vehicles for mobility.

Meanwhile in Great Britain, electric car owners are not allowed to charge their batteries during the day due to the energy shortage.  ⁃ TN Editor

“very weak” policies regulating the import of used vehicles. The report called for harmonized regulations at a global and regional level to “ensure used vehicles make meaningful contributions to shifting to cleaner, safer, and affordable mobility.” This could notably happen if used low- and no-emissions vehicles are promoted as an affordable way for developing countries to access advanced technologies.

Setting new standards

UNEP and its partners have worked with African countries to draw up new standards, helped by the UN Road Safety Fund, which is chaired by the UN Special Envoy for Road Safety Jean Todt, who is also president of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile.

This work has already paid off in West Africa, where the Economic Community of West African States last year adopted a comprehensive set of regulations for introducing cleaner fuels and vehicles. Those standards came into effect in January this year.

Now, efforts are underway to introduce similar rules in East Africa, de Jong said, and South Africa has started a consultation process on harmonised standards.

“I’m very optimistic that in less than five years we can have harmonised standards in all of Africa, and in less than eight years, we can have the whole world introduce those minimum standards, give or take a few countries,” de Jong says, noting that action must also be taken at the other end of the supply chain.

“Exporters also need to take responsibility. If a vehicle is no longer roadworthy in a European country, you should not export it, regardless of whether there is a regulation in the importing country.,” he says.

The upside of going green

There are benefits too for developed countries. Instead of exporting old, polluting vehicles, states could send them to recycling centres, creating jobs and building a circular system that provides recycled raw materials for car manufacturers. And, as supply to developing nations shrinks, prices will rise, offering a financial incentive to developing countries to increase their own production capacity and laying the groundwork for an eventual transition to cleaner transport systems.

Clear policies are also driving private innovation and progress.

Mark Carney, the UN Special Envoy on Climate and Finance, has noted that the moratoria on internal combustion engines in the European Union and the United Kingdom after 2030 means that industry can step forward now and make the necessary changes.

“This is exactly where the financial sector is most powerful. Because what the financial sector will not do is wait until 2030 to adjust. It will start to adjust now. It will give money, investments and loans to businesses with plans to prosper in those environments,” he has said.

As with all environmental challenges, success will only be achieved through global cooperation.

“It doesn’t matter if climate emissions are emitted in the Netherlands or Kenya. They count towards global emissions and these need to get to zero for the global vehicle fleet by 2050,” said de Jong. “With climate change, you cannot ship away a problem. It is still a problem.”

SPEECH BY ROBERT WELCH 1958 video – 2 mins 19 secs Insiders plan to destroy America. To induce the surrender of American sovereignty, piece by piece and step by step, to various international organisations, of which the UN is the outstanding but far from the only example. 1 – Greatly expanded govt spending. Using every conceivable means of getting rid of larger sums of American money, as wastefully as possible. 2 – Higher, then much higher, taxes. 3 – An increasingly unbalanced budget, despite the higher taxes. 4 – Wild inflation of our currency.  5 – Govt control of prices, wages and… Read more »

Yes this is why Catholic Kennedy was killed. He got wind of the agenda. Now we see it everywhere in ads. Remember that one about woman solves world peace lol? I do hope women love submission to Islam because that’s what’s coming for them once feminists have nuked Western civ. But I’ve NEVER EVER EVER seen an ad for a horse, a horse and wagon, etc. It’s only “electric” coal-powered Chinese toxic battery pieces of crap we’re going to be forced to buy, and to be happy with them!

“This work has already paid off in West Africa, where the Economic Community of West African States last year adopted a comprehensive set of regulations for introducing cleaner fuels and vehicles.

Gates had been using Africans as guinea pigs in his big pharma profit-for- murder empire for a long time before covid–the Africans die accordingly. They have no voice, no freedom from war lords or the shilling elected authorities who take but never give.(Little sanitation most places–nuf… Read more »

No wonder biden’s administration had no qualms about getting rid of the pipelines in America, never mind that it put thousands of people out of work.

I’ll walk before I’ll purchase some stupid electric car. I live in a state where there’s sometimes hundreds of miles between towns, so where on earth would I “charge” an electric car?

These people are living in lala land.

“Used Cars” translation: cars that do not have tracking technology, e.g. GPS.

Exactly, no costly computer system or integrated GPS transmitter. Many used cars are more valuable now then when they were bought aside from the hyperinflation setting in.

Agenda 2030:
“harmonised standards in all of Africa, and in less than eight years, we can have the whole world introduce those minimum standards, give or take a few countries”
We know which countries are the exception: Communist China.

We’ll be living in mud huts and eating bugs, owning nothing and being happy for our globalist overlords ordering us to ZERO POPULATION. That’s what zero emissions means.
