This is part of a futile UN scheme promoting "Net Zero Emissions", which aims to cool the world's climate by waging war on CO2 plant food.
It is promoted by billionaires with other agendas, and endlessly repeated by,
The promotion of electric cars and trucks will cause a massive increase in the demand for electricity to replace diesel, petrol, and gas.
We live beside a major highway connecting Ipswich and Boonah in Queensland and we can hear the roar of the traffic.
The road is generally quiet at night, but as the day dawns the real workers start moving:
Then comes the traffic that sustains urban life - meat vans, milk tankers, and refrigerated trucks of produce to fill supermarket shelves every day.
Around sunrise come the commuters heading for city jobs, and the city's electric trains, lifts, and escalators start to run.
Then kids are delivered to school, road repairs start, and sirens announce the occasional passing of ambulances, fire engines, and police vehicles.
Finally, the tree-change bureaucrats cruise past in their electric cars heading for their leisurely staggered starts.
By 9 am the traffic falls off.
Untold thousands of batteries will need to be fully charged overnight - well before the vast paddocks of Chinese solar panels can deliver one amp of green electricity.
Listen here to Australia's new Prime Minister during the recent election campaign explaining how roof-top solar will charge all those Tesla batteries overnight:
Australia's reliable coal/gas power stations could charge batteries overnight, while city demand for electricity is lower, but the green religion demands closure and demolition of anything using hydrocarbons.
But Green engineers have the solution - intermittent wind power plus big batteries will recharge millions of vehicle batteries before dawn.
The Queensland Premier has a $62 billion green plan to close all coal power stations, cover the countryside with wind/solar clutter, plan whole cities of battery charging stations, build the "world's biggest" pumped-hydro batteries (net CONSUMERS of electricity) and become a world leader in "green hydrogen" (huge CONSUMERS of electricity and water).
Soon after the last coal power plant is demolished, in a snap of still, cold, cloudy weather,
But this energy reality will come too late.
All this for zero climate benefits - the world has passed the peak of this interglacial and the next long glacial cycle is edging closer.
