E-Mobility – Discriminatory, egocentric and damaging
The West, specially Germany, are obsessed with E-Mobility, whilst there are technologies much better and safer than E-Mobility, the so-called hydro power or water power. This has already been tested and proven to work, even in rockets, beside of cars. The exhaust spits out pure, even drinkable water, and the refill of the gas tanks is fast, just like patrolling a car nowadays. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_vehicle)
Germany only contributes 2% of the worlds CO2 emission, but cries and pushes as if it were the worse environment polluter ever, whilst the USA and China are leaders in thus that topic.
The Green party is the political force pushing for all what we hear on daily news; no more coal, no nuclear, no fossil fuels. Yet more wind energy, E-Mobility and less meat and the highest taxation system, to punish the people.
Germany's Bundesrat has decided to significantly increase the level of carbon dioxide tax in Germany in 2021. The decision means that in a few years, the EU's two strongest economies, hence Germany and France, will have a price on CO2 emissions of 50 EUROS per tonne. The decision applies to the entire economy so it includes heating and transport, so not just to the heavy industry.
Of course, Germany could shut down all its nuclear plants and coal plants, but then the system would collapse. Wind alone will never cover the needs of an industrialized country, unless industry is willingly destroyed; and its ongoing, especially in Germany’s backbone, the car industry. Not to mention, all the trees, that absorb out CO2, changing it to oxygen, being cut down, to produce space for the wind parks. Lets also mention all the birds that have been shredded by the blades of the rotors. France is producing most of its energy through nuclear power, and would happily export their power to Germany, when its on its knees. Electricity in France is cheap and clean, the same it already is in Germany; and even coal plants have huge filter systems, doing the most possible; and Germany is clean, now already.
The problem with E-Cars starts nationally. The range is limited t a maximum of 500 kilometers, and that’s for the most expensive models only; so, let’s give an average of 250 kilometers to be generous. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_car)
Riding down Germany, would mean a least 3-4 stops to fill up the batteries, and each filling would take around an hour, at its least. (Source: https://auto.howstuffworks.com/how-long-does-it-take-to-charge-an-electric-car.htm)
Who can and wants to do that? The second problem is the cycle, the human cycle of the working population. If all working humans will come home during the evening and plug their car, that demands a sudden high need to electricity, that won’t be possible to supply. Not to mention, that the production of batteries produces more CO2 than fossil fueled cars and use metals that are mined, often through child labor, in Africa.
Another issue occurs internationally. Even if Europe is in parts ready for such a technology, too many countries in Asia and the most in Africa would have no chance to follow. Not only don’t they have the powerplants to supply such a need, neither does the average person have he capacity to purchase such a vehicle, not drive it safely of either bumpy or non-existing road systems. Extreme heat or cold, have both proven to destroy, or at least shorten the life spam of a battery.
So all in all, the leftist green politics is nothing more than a guilt free feel policy, being able to be complied with by and through the rich, and a blind making policy that disregards the doable and lets those politicians continue live a lavage life without even following what they shout for. They still drive cars, fly planes and use electricity and heat their homes. As ridiculous their politics, they should start as role model, by using the bike to parliament, travelling by sail boat or donkey, and cut their electricity supply, or at least place a wind mill in their garden, and don’t heat anymore.
We can take it from there
