"The UK has rejected proposals from the EU which call for a ban on petrol and diesel cars from city centres by 2050. The European Commission said phasing out 'conventionally fuelled' cars from urban areas would cut reliance on oil and help cut carbon emissions by 60%. But UK Transport Minister Norman Baker said it should not be 'involved' in individual cities' transport choices." (03/29/11)
