Yep, you're onto it!I think everyone is missing thee end point. It's NOT about anyone having cars electric or otherwise, it's purely about controlling free movement of the masses.
All of this is beingh driven by the UNs drive to sero road deaths by 2050 ...that they started in 1950 .
All very noble but surely there are far more important issues that claim far more lives than motor accidents , like wars, famine, illnesses etc etc.
If the need for oil can be done away with there will be a HUGE shift in world power as well.
IF the end game is about pollution then stopping manufacturing new cars should be the first step to keeping low emissions and then develop fresh sources of fuel for existing IC engines.
Stop shipping cheap crap from one side of the planet to another, make your OWN country fully self sustaing so little need to buy in others produce. Oh wait, there's no profit in that and,like it or not , that is what drives our current 'civilisation'.
So much of what we purchase is what we are told we want rather than what we actually need.
The Manufactures of electric cars are running scared, 40% of folk who have followed the sheep and got one have replaced it with a fuel burning car...it can NOT work, ever, there will never be an infrastructure to support the whole shit show IMO.Electric cars are only environmentally friendly at the point of use. Nobody factors the environmental (and human) cost of mining and refining lithium, let alone the actual production process. I'm with Martin Harris on this one
Ha ha , fkn hilarious....and its not even in full swing yet, ..........."quick ,drag the reliable fuel burner out, we need to get there on time"Last night when returning from a fantastic dragstalgia at Santa Pod I stopped at the services on the A1, when walking across the car park I noticed 5 Tesla's parked up with occupants inside on charge, went in got my meal deal came out sat on the bench stuffed my face while looking at the Tesla occupants sitting there motionless, life draining from their faces, walked back to my 15 year old diesel car drove round to petrol station filled up, then drove back past the Tesla's and back on the A1, - is this what we've got to look forward to ? doesn't look good to me.
