Electricity

Post by kellys_eye »

WTF is going on with electricity?

We've got .gov forcing all-electric vehicles on us by 2030 (or was it 2040) and this morning I read of a planned elimination of gas cooking/heating in favour of 'alternatives' (obviously electricity) ????

On top of the strident f**kwit environmental claims of globull warming we have even more morons prepared to campaign to prevent fracking, the closure of coal-fired power stations and a (practical) moratorium on building nuclear power stations - those that are proposed costing the proverbial arm, leg and torso - is there ANYONE with joined up thinking on the panels, boards or committees that make these decisions.

Regardless of the infrastructure requirements for electric vehicles (charging points everywhere, impossibility for multi-occupancy buildings to access charging etc) the loss of revenue from petrol/diesel sales will have to be recovered - surprise, surprise, enter the 'Smart Meters'.

If they tax electricity for cars they'll also be taxing it for domestic use too. Strap on all cooking and heating to the already impossible-to-manage electric vehicle requirements and the pathetic-ness of the situation becomes even more apparent.

Yet we don't see any open discussion of these issues.

We need to see more opposition to these idiotic ideas - pointing out the flaws is easy enough - and the Globull Warming claims are all but openly discredited already so WTF is going on?

Are these 'ideas' just distractions - making the likes of 'me' grump about them instead of the state of the economy or the prospect of global war? Distraction from immigration? Brexit? Or is it, God forbid, so-called joined-up thinking for a specific and legitimate reason?

The country/world is in a bad enough state as it is without environmental tosspots spouting unicorn powered solutions to 'everything' yet these ideas are actually newsworthy enough to print - and the actual roll-out of Smart Meters seems to be some form of evidence that .gov really IS intending to move in these directions.

The only way I can see such ideas having merit/purpose is if the population of the UK fell from the current 75m+ to under 1m.

Is this their plan?

Speaking of Unicorns, mine is saddled up in the stable (was the garage), and the car is rotting away on the driveway!

I'd have a unicorn, but they need a continuous supply of rainbow dust, and I don't fancy the 'leccy bill for running an artificial rainbow all the time.

Yep, these "Greens" won't be happy until we're lighting candles of a night to provide both light and warmth.. You just watch the price of wax candles skyrocket. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

But some places are already banning fossil fueled cars from some places...

I think Kellys is right there is a hidden agenda.
