Reactions to government proposals

Pascal Canfin, WWF France Director, welcomed measures announced to support drivers facing the rise in fuel prices. However, the subsidies still allow to buy a new diesel vehicle while some cities are planning a total ban on diesel (2024 in Paris) and our society's dependence on oil makes us vulnerable to rising prices. Electricity is part of the solution where it is difficult to do without a car, especially in rural areas where Renault for instance already sells half of its models.
