The European Union has announced it will ban cars from all European cities By 2050.
The goal of the new transportation plan is to cut carbon emissions by 60 percent over the next 40 years.
Members of the EU Transport Commission insist that new taxes on fuel would eventually force people to use alternate means of transportation.
"That means no more conventionally fuelled cars in our city centers," EU Transportation Commissioner Siim Kallas said. "Action will follow, legislation, real action to change behavior."
But some in the United Kingdom are rejecting the proposal.
According to the BBC, U.K. Transportation Minister Norman Baker said, "We will not be banning cars from city centers any more than we will be having rectangular bananas,"
The London Telegraph also reported that Christoper Monckton, spokesman for the U.K. Independence Party, suggested the EU was delusional.
"The EU must be living in an alternate reality where they can spend trillions and ban people from their cars," Monckton said.
"This sort of green-washing grandstanding adds nothing and merely highlights their grandiose ambitions," he added.
