I think that this would be the ideal but we would have to look into the logistics and effects of meeting these targets. When my grandson was a toddler over 20 years ago, I observed that when waiting to cross a road at a junction, he was on a level with car exhausts, which is worrying and not much has changed on this.
Divestment from Fossil Fuels
There should be a reduction in fossil fuels usage but I don’t know enough about whether the targets to fully divest are possible.
