New Zealand To Get Rid Of Fossil Fueled Vehicles, Reduce Number Of Cows

I’m just wondering if the fossil fueled vehicle elimination applies to the Elites and politicians. And, what about their use of fossil fueled airplanes. And, what of tourists coming in on fossil fueled planes? And all the goods brought to the island nation on fossil fueled planes and boats?

Climate Change: New Zealand to Phase Out Petrol Cars and Slash Cow Herds

New Zealand unveiled a blueprint Sunday to phase out petrol-powered cars while its dairy industry, a key pillar of the economy, must slash cow numbers under the ambitious plan to be carbon neutral by 2050.

The changes are among a raft of recommendations presented to the government by the Climate Change Commission on steps New Zealand must take to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change.

Commission chairman Rod Carr acknowledged the advice was ambitious but said it was realistic and made a clear case for “immediate and decisive” action.

“As a country, we need transformational and lasting change to meet our targets,” he said.

“There are a few actions that are critical to meeting our targets: electric vehicles, accelerated renewable energy generation, climate-friendly farming practices and more permanent forests, predominantly natives.”

The commission wants to end imports of petrol-powered cars by 2032 and projects that more than half of all light vehicle travel would be in electric vehicles by 2035.

And the other half would be on what, exactly? Since most people won’t be able to afford EVs. And what of construction vehicles and other big vehicles for things like moving goods around the country? Oh, and what kinds of ships will be bringing those EVs to New Zealand? What are they powered by?

“Action on climate change is critical to our ongoing economic success. New Zealand exporters rely on our clean, green brand and there will be new opportunities for Kiwi businesses as we adapt to a zero-carbon economy.”

How are they going to export their products? Sailing ships? Do these climate cultists even consider this stuff, or is it all just emotion and bullshit?

    In 2035, half would be gas-powered. By 2050 their objective is to have no gas-powered.

      New zealand is five million people. They can afford to make decisions like this one and keep on keeping on.

      I personally have no problems with going all Electric in cars because they have come so far in battery life and FT. LB of Torque that a battery Truck can pull trailers and the new Tesla coming out with a 200 watt hour battery pack can give you up to 650 miles before needing a charge.

      I have given up on my opposition to the fact they will destroy the worlds economies by ridding the planet of fossil fuels. But hey our next generation of software sending men to the moon will be from W. Virginia Coal Miners.

      This is NOT going to solve the co2 problem but hey. If it makes the crazies happy I have no issues. Elon Musk will just be the first Trillionaire and that means we get to mars and get to leave these crazies behind or send them instead to Mars. One or the other.

      I’m all for driving all the oil and gas and coal people out of business as they all learn to code. Unfortunately for humankind the crazies don’t understand just how much of our economies products use fossil fuels to be created. Not power but the actual fossil fuel is part of the ingredient for the item itself.

      They will though as they crunch the oil and gas and coal industry into oblivion. I was watching an interview with the Governor of Wyoming talking about how Biden wants to destroy the state with another million windmills to produce energy for the blue states, killing migratory pathways as well as endangering even more species.

        However folks be not deceived.

        Once they rid the planet of the fossil fueled car they will be demanding we stop producing Electric cars and Trucks because of the strip mining all around the world until the crust of the earth is exposed.

        A warmer world. What a harsh reality that Canada can finally move 100 miles from the border of the United States and begin growing food, mining, farming and ranching.

        A warmer world? Sadly the lunatics on the left will never be satisfied.

        The AGW crowd Need Revenge. Revenge for Being born. Make no mistake. Enough will never be enough and the biggest mistake the world made was listening to these crazies who are now demanding censorship of people who donated to Donald Trump and run a baby channel telling mothers of newborns how to get enough sleep to be an effective mother.

        The crazies are leading the charge.

    Most car companies are already planning to stop all production if fossil fueled vehicles by 2035
    GM just announced that was its date to end fossil fueled cars and trucks
    Progress can’t be stopped
    The cost of ownership of a new car is quite high, especially for Tesla
    However because there is no fuel costs and lower maintenance a Tesla model 3 + (extended range) is LESS than that of a Toyota Camry
    Cost of ownership comparison Tesla model 3 vs Toyota Camry
    Sept 27 2019
    And after 5 years the cost difference increases
    Tesla has announced plans go its Megachargrr which would charge a Demi tractor in 30 mins and provide 400 mile range
    Cdl drivers must take out of service breaks more frequently than that

    That’s all well and good . . . for people who can afford to buy the Tesla. But for those who have to finance their automobiles — meaning: just about everybody — they are financing the fuel costs as well, meaning that they are paying interest on them.

    Of course, the plug in electric cars do have fuel costs; you don’t get to not pay for your increased electricity consumption.

    A U.S. Department of Energy study found that increased electrification across all sectors of the economy could boost national consumption by as much as 38% by 2050, in large part because of electric vehicles.

    Isn’t it quite the cowinkydink that Nutsy Pelosi bought over a Million in Tesla stock the day before joementia signed an EO mandating the government only buy electric vehicles???
