People plan to drive more post-Covid, climate poll shows

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/nov/10/people-drive-fly-cli...

"This trend was apparent in all 26 countries in the survey and most pronounced in Brazil, where 62% said they would use their car more than before the pandemic, while only 12% said less, and South Africa 60% more and 12%.

In the US and Australia, more than 40% expected to drive more than before, compared with 10% less.

The trend was also apparent but less strong in the UK, Italy, Germany, India and China. While this may be partly because of the difficulties of adequate social spacing on public transport, it means more traffic, more congestion and more emissions."

I couldn't care less aboout more traffic and more congestion but more emissions is an issue for anybody who values their health. Subsidies for electric cars now!!
