John Tanner, Councillor of Oxford City Council said: "Toxic and illegal air pollution in the city centre is damaging the health of Oxford's residents".

He said: "It is very pleasing to see this, locally-built, first fully electric and zero emissions bus being trialled in Leeds and we look forward to seeing it in action on our park and ride services".

At least initially, Oxford would fine gas and diesel vehicles about $80 if they're caught operating within the zero emissions zone. I would urge everyone who uses Oxford city centre to take part in the consultation. "Everyone needs to do their bit - from national Government and local authorities, to businesses and residents - to end this public health emergency".

Colfax Corporation is an industrial manufacturing and engineering company. 473,014 shares of the stock traded hands. Three research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and nine have assigned a buy rating to the company.

City officials announced a "Zero Emission Zone" that bans emitting vehicles from entering part of Oxford city center from 2020. A step change is urgently needed; the new Zero Emission Zone is that step change. Oxford plans to create Britain's first "zero-emission zone" by 2020.

Since German carmaker Volkswagen admitted in 2015 to cheating US emissions tests, politicians around the world have unveiled plans to clamp down on diesel vehicles in a bid to improve air quality and meet more stringent targets. "We know that the future is electric vehicles with no tailpipe emissions; this is the beginning of a revolution in bus travel".

The city council has already begun to prepare for the Zero Emissions Zone, having secured £500,000 of Government funding to install charging points for electric taxis and a further £800,000 to install 100 EV charging points for regular motorists.

Yellowstone Supervolcano May Erupt Sooner Than Anticipated
Based on the new study, it seems the magma can rapidly refresh-making the volcano potentially explosive in the geologic blink of an eye.

'This will also mean that local residents who have invested in cleaner hybrid vehicles will now be targeted, which seems both unfair and an unwelcome disincentive as the use of these vehicles should be being encouraged'.

The zero-emissions zone plan will be implemented gradually.

Councillor Yvonne Constance, Oxfordshire County Council cabinet member for environment, said: "We want to hear from everyone who uses the city centre - including businesses, bus and taxi firms and local residents so that we get the fullest possible picture". This move could establish the world's first zero-emissions zone. These measures are aimed at reducing traffic and congestion in the city and would improving air quality.
