To stem pollution, China, the biggest gas car market, turning to electric car, not bicycle

Re: �Sacrificing cyclists for the climate,� Lawrence Solomon, Aug. 26.

In 2016, about 24 million passenger cars were sold in China, compared 17 million sold in the U.S. As result, China has also  become the biggest source of carbon emission in the world. With millions of gasoline cars spewing toxic fumes, the air in most Chinese is simply unbreathable. It may be pointed that not long ago, China was the biggest market for bicycles. However, to combat pollution, China is turning to electric car, not bicycle.

In a news analysis: �China hastens the world toward an electric car future,� Financial Post wrote on October 11, 2017: �There is powerful reason that automakers around the world are speeding up their efforts to develop electric vehicles � and that reason is China.  � the country also fears a dark future, one where its cities remain cloaked in smog ��

FP also reported that already, China is the world�s largest maker and seller of electric cars. Chinese buyers are on track to snap up almost 300,000 of them this year. The European Union should follow in the footstep of China and replace gas cars with electric cars.
