In Germany—the birthplace of the modern automobile—carmakers are anticipating the day when people stop owning cars.

For years, Martin Bruesch was the bread and butter of the German auto industry. He routinely used his 211-horsepower Audi A4 station wagon for the 20-minute trip to the office.

Now on work days his car usually stays parked outside his apartment in the affluent Berlin neighborhood of Charlottenburg and the 32-year-old human resources executive hails a new carpooling service instead.

 

 

“If I’m truly honest with myself, then owning a car is too expensive with all these alternatives around,” Bruesch said as he got into one of CleverShuttle’s battery-powered Nissan Leafs one evening this month.

The fossil fool industry has spent 31 million in Washington State to defeat carbon tax as opposed to 15 million others spent in support of carbon tax to fight climate change *  


This is not a big deal in itself because even this lowly environmentalist thinks that tax is not effective but that carbon caps are effective if applied at the point that carbon comes out of the ground.


We need to bypass the carbon tax and calculate how much each country needs to cap their extraction of fossil fuels to save the planet and our descendants.
