UK Government to ban petrol and diesel car sales after 2040

In a pretty big development in car news, the U.K. has joined France in banning the sale of new gasoline or diesel powered cars after the year 2040!  While some critics say this isn’t enough to combat air pollution, it’s great news of global warming as it’ll help accelerate the adoption and advancement of electric car technology.

Embark startup in the news

So, a funny set of stories passed through my newsreader this morning (Feedly, if you’re curious).  The first was about a company in Texas called Embark, offering DNA testing for dogs!  It’ll tell you your dog’s pedigree, as well as what diseases they may be suceptible to.  Cool!

The second article was about a company working on self driving trucks called…Embark!  Yeah, same name!  Though I don’t really envision these companies going head to head and confusing consumers!  🤣
