Hopefully with all the global warming the tide will rise and flood all of Westminster.

Then Emma Thompson can fly in from the States (first class of course!) to star in the movie of the event and the populations resulting euphoric celebrations.

Would this be the same Express newspaper which, every September, tells its readers that it is going to start snowing in October and continue non-stop until March?

Lets see how the Thames Barrier copes with a huge tidal swell that we are warned will come from global warming ...
For us in the Midlands we won't have far to go for the sea front, Rugby maybe

Given the manufactured enthusiasm for fads as shown by successive governments (witness diesel fuel) the current finance-led harangue for ev's has a sting in the tail.

At the moment electricity pricing is, well, let's say modest in relation to other power sources.There will be a need for a massive surge in home-based charging on dedicated metering. Anyone care to hazard a guess at what happens next?

As the market for oil-based fuels diminishes, from 2020 the oil producers will hardly stand by suffering huge losses. Some power companies (and countries) have already seen the opportunities for pricing escalation and this will become the growth industry.

Look for the price of charging equipment installation included in the price of the car and the terms of the contract for supply. Ally that with 'smart meters' and the possibilities are endless.

Yes I can see the electric companies as the new big hitters on the block as they will become the "New petrol stations"



I read yesterday ExxonMobil have just invested $100million with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory after spending $1billion of shareholders money on lobbying against renewable energy


If you cant beat em join em......or are they spending that amount to slow down or put a spanner in the works of renewable energy.

Speaking of petrol stations! Iceland's capital Reykjavik are closing down 50% of all petrol stations, must be the next step up from their ULEZ! https://electrek.co/2019/05/13/icela...-gas-stations/

"A spokesman for the Environmental Transport Association though, who believes green number plates to be just one side of the equation. He added that “to be truly effective any such initiative will need to at the same time shame the drivers of the most polluting vehicles; an electric or hydrogen-powered vehicle might sport a green plate, but the biggest gas guzzlers should have theirs branded red.”


As for the low speed pedestrian noise on BEV/hybrids I want "the Jetsons" sound on mine

Your a worrier! I am as well. I keep worrying about the sanity of most of those supposedly in ‘power positions ‘. I am waiting for Guy Fawkes to carry out my wishes.Wish he would hurry up. .
