    Australia is doomed. Whenever governments interfere with industry it never ends well. Politicians should just leave it to the free-market. Focus on lowering taxes, and keep out of what should be private industry.

    only if they suspend the cable above head height so it isn't a trip hazard like you have to these days on work sites.

    Oh a cheap Tesla funded by ALL TAX PAYER with HALF not being able to AFFORD ONE EVER - another good story thanks :confused:

    How much time did she spend sitting on her arse waiting for the TESLA to be charged,plenty no doubt :) and how many complete strangers did she impose herself on after there extension cord to run outside :D

    I have come to think about socialists like this - they feel good about spending OTHER PEOPLES money :rolleyes:

    Thanks "Julie" at least you have finally taught me one thing,and that is all I expect :D

    When someone wants to buy a car in Japan, that person has to prove that he can park it, that he has a dedicated parking spot or a garage first. Parking for free on a side-street is not something you can do in Japan, those types of spots simply do not exist and you HAVE to go in a pay-park.

    Millions of households are not limited to street parking. Off street parking is the same thing in this context. Any household without off street parking is not rural, meaning they are a short trip to a recharge station as it stands NOW, not to mention in 10 years. It is a non issue because you're suggesting that if we can't accomplish a 100% satisfaction across the board then we should not do anything at all. You sound like and old timer denier that's just scared to deviate from the status quo.

    Remember, there is a solution to any given problem.

    Show me where I ever said that “we should not do anything at all”. I did not say that anywhere. I said that forcing massive change for political reasons so quickly while glossing over obvious and major issues will cause severe system failures.

    And to address your point about “A short trip to a recharge station” for city dwellers, where exactly will these recharge stations that can handle hundreds of vehicles at once be located in the inner cities? There are very few petrol stations in inner urban areas now, each of them has space for 6-8 cars to fill their tanks and that refuelling takes a few minutes. I live in the inner city and at night every side street has cars parked in every space. There are three petrol stations within a 1.5 km radius of my house and I don’t know how many cars parked on the street in that radius but there are many thousands.

    So each morning within that 1.5k radius where there are say 2000 or so of those cars that will be needed by commuters going to go for their mandatory morning 10 or more minute charge? Are we going to have to start paving over parks or knocking down entire city blocks to replace 8 car petrol stations with the 100 car mass charging stations that would be necessary to handle that load across Sydney or Melbourne?

    Details matter. Politicians and idealists ignore them.

    Fantastic. Let’s force every Australian motorist to scrap their car and stump up for a Tesla. Current pricing range is from $105,000.000 to $250,000.00.

    And let’s keep knocking down base load power stations too and replacing them with hundreds of thousands of square kilometres of windmills that only work sometimes to charge all those electric cars sometimes.

    In fact let’s ignore silly things like details, economics, physics, engineering and the issues faced by low income earners in society and just push through massive changes because it appeals to low resolution thinkers who cannot deal with complex systems.

    Electric cars are the future. That is obvious. Forcing electric cars so quickly while at the same time demolishing a country’s ability to generate electricity is something that politicians, activists and dumb people like Alexandria Ocassio Cortez try and do. Low resolution ideas from low resolution minds.

    The electric cars around here lose 40 to 50 percent of their range due to our cold climate. Forget about a Prius in the snow or ice. As soon as they lose traction the drivetrain shuts down and they stop. Every winter the mountain passes are full of electric cars sitting along the shoulder that cant go anywhere.
    They need to come a long way before they will work for everyone. I'll keep my gas engines.

    I really like you finally statement - remember there is a solution to any GIVEN problem :confused: you are right GIVEN to us by Dill Shorten :mad: and Labor :mad:

    Buy an electric car if you want,
    but do it with your OWN money and NOT with other tax payers money.

    BiGs - you have been completely brain washed - sucked in - global warming a COMPLETE LIE and you have swallowed it :rolleyes:
