One of the biggest enemies of the environment is internal combustion engines that use petroleum derivatives (diesel or diesel) as fuel. Although there are anti-pollution standards that are always stricter in terms of the permitted amount of CO2, it seems that governments in Europe have said

In this sense Spain could become the first country to ban oil if a new law on climate change and the transition to energy is approved, which envisages various plans to reduce pollutant emissions.
The project, which must be adopted at the Spanish Congress in February, envisages the creation of a law prohibiting the sale and circulation of internal combustion vehicles. First, a diesel-powered vehicle would be vetoed in 2025, all internal combustion vehicles would be stopped by 2040, and finally 2050 will be disabled for use.
Other less drastic measures to reduce pollutant emissions are in force, for example in Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, France, or in the United Kingdom there is the exclusion of a certain type of vehicle in some central areas of large cities.
Stimulation is the other way they use to promote the purchase of "green" vehicles. For example, in the UK 1,169 million euros will be earmarked for incentives to buy electric cars. In addition, low emission areas have been identified, where tolls are charged only to old vehicles (ie those that pollute
In Germany, the government offers up to € 8,000 to remove Euro 1 and Euro 4 diesel vehicles from the fleet, while Volkswagen has notified any owners of the Euro 4 or 5 diesel models, change it to a new
