Reporter: Today is Tuesday, May 24, 2022. The increase in environmental pollution since 2028 has pushed the states to take some measures in this regard. Fossil fuel consumption is one of these measures. Unfortunately, this precaution, which should have been taken much earlier, caused some negativities because it was late. As the situation became more serious, the remedy was found to be a complete ban on fossil fuels. Now we will interview one of the diplomats who made this decision. I believe this interview will be enlightening for all “New Normal Channel” viewers.
Hello Mrs Simay. First of all, I want you to know that I support your decision. If there are viewers who are not supportive, I apologize to them, but that’s my opinion. What influenced you to take this decision and how did you take it?
Man/Woman: I can say that we had a hard time making this decision. Because there is an order based on fossil fuels. I believe that it will be difficult for all of us to create this order from scratch by making breakthroughs. However, after we get used to this process, we will say, “It’s good that we did it”. The use of electric vehicles has already become widespread in recent years. We will increase this process with the support we give to the industry and encourage everyone to use electric cars. At the same time, we will increase the use of environmentally friendly and healthy bicycles in small settlements. For those who do not want to pedal, we will supply electric motors. We will help brands to procure these means of transportation without making a profit.
Reporter: What kind of reaction did you get, especially from the public? There are some rumours, but let’s make sure it’s true by asking you.
Man/Woman: I would say that at first, we got a negative response from most of the public. Because people believe they have other problems to deal with. They are thinking about it now. This is not a completely wrong thought, but we should also think about the future. When we don’t have a future to live in, the present will have no meaning. There was a positive reaction from our citizens who are aware of the existence of electric buses and use them regularly. These reactions vary according to the income level of the people. But those who react positively affect society in this way. Especially the tax reduction on the purchase of electric cars attracted the attention of everyone. People who tried to live cheaply also suddenly became eco-friendly.
Reporter: Could you inform us about the next developments?
Man/Woman: When you get out of here and listen carefully, you will know about the future. I recommend this to everyone. This situation has a positive effect not only on air pollution but also on noise pollution. People can walk more peacefully when they go outside. You will notice this over time. Predict what the future will be like. Thanks 🙂
