Traffic turnaround - What does Mr. Bean have to say about it?

Rowan Atkinson, an electrical engineering graduate from Oxford, is better known as Mr. Bean from the TV series of the same name. A self-confessed fan of electric cars, he admits that they are not an ecological panacea. Accordingly, he criticizes the British government's goal of no longer selling new gasoline and diesel cars from 2030 and advises restraint in buying new electric cars for the time being. Atkinson's much-criticized thesis is that we don't need to restrict our mobility if we save CO2 emissions from production by keeping cars longer and buying new ones less often.
