The measures and opinions of Yannick Jadot in the field of transport advanced during the primary of environmentalists in 2021 and for the French presidential election of 2022.
There needs to be a carbon import tax on products from producers in third countries who are not virtuous in terms of the fight against climate change.
We don't need free transport. We must invest in all forms of soft mobility, there must be daily trains, we must invest in these trains, these trams, these coaches, so that people have the ability to move and do not need to take the car.
The low-carbon project's transition plan cannot weigh on consumers. Otherwise the responsibility for changing the whole economy is thrown back to consumers. For example, zero carbon steel can be produced using green hydrogen, using hydraulics and offshore wind turbines. The stake is on the most polluting industries so that they decarbonize their production. We must innovate, change with this regulated economy. We must impose on goods entering the European market to avoid relocation and allow reindustrialisation around this carbon-free economy that we want to build.
We must avoid the increase in fuel prices.
We must ban the sale of cars with thermal engines by 2030 and not ban the circulation of these cars. There are 67,000 premature deaths each year in France linked to air pollution. In ten years we have lost 25% of the workforce in the automotive sector in France. We know that it is necessary to go electric, it is necessary that France also takes the turn of the electrification of the automobile by 2030 and therefore that the automobile manufacturers must not be behind the competitors. German, American. French engineers must invent an efficient battery, we need efficient data, we have to innovate on the battery so that it is less polluting. Whenever there is work on the road, an electric terminal should be installed.
An urban toll must be set up, but with a rate that is not relatively high and therefore punitive as in London, with a different rate for off-peak hours (1.60 euros) and full hours (2.70 euros) ). The price could be reduced for those who carpool. People need to be encouraged to change their behavior when they can. Those who need their vehicle such as delivery men and craftsmen must be able to move around more easily.
We must assume the temporary nationalization of companies linked to the world of thermal cars, gasoline and diesel so that they are part of this green industrial policy.
