Well, the radical ANTI-GOD ‘save the earth’ crowd are determined to do away with the
petrol and diesel vehicles at any cost. If they get their way you will be plugging in your vehicle sooner than you might think or want!
‘Transport Minister Barnaby Joyce has quashed the prospect of Australia replicating overseas bans on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars, as the Turnbull government splits on whether to encourage the electric vehicle industry.
Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg this week strongly backed the prospects of electric vehicles in Australia against opposition from conservative backbenchers. He told Sky News on Tuesday that critics who ridiculed the technology would “probably be the ones buying them in a decade’s time”.
In an opinion piece for Fairfax Media this month, Mr Frydenberg said Australia should prepare for the electric car revolution that has already swept Europe and will soon hit China. He said France and Britain would end the sale of new diesel and petrol cars by 2040, and Norway and the Netherlands aimed to do so by 2025.
Asked whether Australia would follow suit, a spokeswoman for Infrastructure and Transport Minister Barnaby Joyce on Wednesday said his government had “no plan to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars … Australia’s transport policies are modelled on Australia’s needs.” His office declined to elaborate.
Two Liberal backbenchers – Craig Kelly and Tim Wilson – have signalled they will oppose any government subsidies to the electric car industry.
This is despite the International Energy Agency’s 2017 outlook for electric vehicles stating that financial incentives were “essential for reducing the purchase cost and total cost of ownership gap between electric and conventional cars”.
The report said such incentives would encourage sales, leading to a rise in production and technology development that would help lower the cost of electric car components.’ http://www.theland.com.au/story/5185912/joyce-rejects-banning-sale-of-petrol-cars/?src=rss
If electric vehicles are such a good thing why do the manufacturers need tax dollars to
develop and produce them? Is this campaign really about keeping the air clean or do they just simply hate God!? Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
