I'll miss the sound of V8s and V10s but it's definitely time we put an end to emissions. The next step would be to reconsider container shipping boats that emit tons of carbons.

Yea and they will float the cargo over the ocean using pixie dust engines. Maybe the pixie dust engines can ship the refugees in from the middle east and Africa Merkill and the EU are so hellbent on importing into Europe.

Geniuses like you who couldn't be bothered to pick up an economics textbook or history book will be the cause of WW3.

Renewable energy only accounts for about 1/3 of energy in Germany, so this is just an expensive, pointless, feel-good move that trades gasoline emissions for coal fire power plant emissions.

Banning is a bit harsh. Taxation is the way to go. If the odd person wants to use a combustion engine, and pay for the privilege, they're not hurting anyone.

Then this is just another reason the UK will benefit from the Brexit. Germany and the EU couldn't be more out of touch with reality.

The UK will be brimming with riches is this is actually done. The only issue is this will start WW3 as mass poverty wipes out the European economy and the countries erupt into violence.

It's doing so well from the split at the moment.

Mercedes are well known for AMG cars with V8 and V12 so it's Germany kicking itself again.
