Tan: Maybe investment in electric vehicles?
Carlo and Shelagh: What do you think is the best use of money saved by cutting fossil fuel subsidies in most places, in order to earn the greatest public support for the change?
Shelagh: It is really interesting how money going to renewables is seen as government unfairly subsidising them, while money going to fossil fuels, as part of the norm, is not seen in the same way
@Shelagh - good point on business. Will we see a growing war of words between fossil fuel biz and renewable biz (though some big companies do both)?
Armsfree: How about investment in solar panels in rural areas, with electricity generated going to power electric vehicles? Plus cheaper and better access to healthcare and education?
Joydeep: So good governance is a prerequisite to reducing fossil fuel subsidies effectively?
Shelagh: I agree completely. Making clear to the public exactly what is going where surely would make some difference
Tan: Do you see any mobility solutions in rural areas?
Carlo: Yes, clear information I think is key in all of this. If people can see clearly what is going on, it helps them make better decisions
Temi: Glad the debate is useful for you!
