It's sad that some commentards still seem to take pleasure in rubbishing any option which isn't the status quo. Time to acknowledge that the status quo is not a viable option. This report is saying that even HMG's (relatively radical) plan is inadequate - even if we replace all ICE vehicles with EV (it would help, despite El Reg's headline, but wouldn't be enough).
There are a few realities that need to be absorbed:-
You do not have a right to drive. You may want to, but it isn't a right, just because you are accustomed to it.
You do not have a right to live in the middle of nowhere, and work in the middle of somewhere. It may make sense, if you believe you have a right to drive - but you don't.
You do not have a right to live in territories which are only livable with huge energy expenditures (or by stealing someone else's water).
You do not have a right to jet off to distant climes, several times a year.
You do not have a right to exotic, seasonal foods, all year round (and this includes red meat).
Once you have acknowledged that none of these are yours, as of right, you might be able to find a balance between what you want, and what you can have (bearing in mind you may have to look grandchildren in the eye, one day).
