The regulation thing, time is not kind to knee jerking me thinks. I am predicting that these things will change over time. Firstly for all the wrong reasons, secondly because they will be found to be not practical. And that is besides the point that the CO2 thing, in the future, may be proven to be a nothing burger.
Don’t now go and get all foamy at the mouth yet, give it some time. There are way to many questions and way to much money involved for the CO2 issue to be clear cut. And that is without all the censoring going on, let lone the fraud and firing of scientists… Many many articles in peer reviewed publications had to be withdrawn in the past, guess why? Because of fraud and manipulation. Just have a look at the whole low fat debacle, again don’t shoot me, we all supposed to be adults.
Normally regulations interfere in what people are doing, mostly but not always, because money is involved. The regulators think we as citizens are stupid and the elite class just think for everybody because they clever. But money are changing hands, none the less, and politicians are at the receiving end.
So then why is it a good thing to regulate ICE cars, and not trucks, trains, ships and airplanes and all industrial ICE? What about Gas turbines in utility plants and peaker plants? Or even just why regulate ICE? The disruption will take care of whatever needs to happen anyhoo…
Don’t, please don’t take this as anti Solar or EV. I am mostly currently self sufficient re Energy, on solar so tick. If there were an affordable new EV that is crash worthy, I would buy that right now.
