don't you just love ideals and utopia, especially if they make a lot/total sense.

i'd like to see the ban of capitalism and the sustained feudal state that has existed for aeons and move towards a different social system for a 'better future', but its an unachievable ideal in most folks eyes and in any case...how do you get there fairly and equitably for all if powerful, vested interests abound. Any way, I digress.

Back to the breaking headline - how can this be supported infrastructure wise.... its not new because many have already commented on this subject based on what's been on the go....but now its serious [arguably]

- massive, I mean massive increase in charging provisions both at home and 'charging garages' up and down the country

e.g. currently you pull up in a car, fill up and gone in '60 seconds' - not so charging a car I suspect....a lot of cars can fizz through a petrol station in short order

- not sure how much money is made each year by the oil petrol industry, or what proportion is from motoring fuel - either way, will 'charging prices' rise to maintain the same level of executive salaries and share-holder dividends

- will electric prices rise even further, or come down

- is there enough available electric production

- what is the infrastructure plan or assessment requirements for a change like this

- why just cars, why not *every vehicle*

- what is the expected 'pollution' contribution from a massive increase in battery production and what is expected to be in place to handle that

- will electric car prices come down (one would think so, but errrmmm)

- are 'they' consulting with the knowledgeable in the electric industry and who are those people...

I'm sure there is much much more to all this in terms of questions and issues and I bet there is very little in terms of sound plans. Anyone can some up with a strap line that is totally sensible - but on complex issues like this, it is the lack of detail of how to get there that inevitably ends up in a 'make it up as it creeps along' which causes all sorts of issues and casualties along the way.

So Mr/Mrs Government - what are your well thought plans, or is it I;ve got a good idea and i'll let you all deal with the chaos....anyway the 'market' will control it.

It's a great idea and at some level makes sense....can't wait to see how it pans out and to watch a new 'cash cow' emerge around this every growing 'green' push to a new cleaner future... la de daa


Well, calm down dear...its only an advert :-)


PS: apologies, this should have been in a general chat forum I fear.
