Re: Electric Cars

There are going to have to be some serous UTurns in the not too distant future.
The UK has something in the region of 32 million vehicles on the road.....and it has not the generating capacity to refuel all of these if everyone decided that they would go electric.

Not only that, but the way that electricity is generated right now is still reliant on non green sources.
Wind power is inefficient.....when there is no wind to turn these turbines where does the power get generated?
When it is too windy these turbines have to be turned off.
We cannot rely on Solar power as that also is a very unreliable source of power.....yes some panels will produce some energy from light, but not enough to refuel the electric vehicles that the politicians hope that we will all adopt before 2030.
It is pure fantasy that we can achieve this target.

If we reduced our carbon emissions to zero, it would make very little difference to the global climate because those countries who produce the largest amount of emissions will do nothing at all about it....they will not saddle their manufacturers with the problems that going green requires.
Population is the biggest driver of global climate changes.
