    #12 Vic. I watched a programme on TV some year ago, about Nikola Tesla. The man was a genius but no businessman others used his ideas. One was to transmit electricity without cables or wires, it failed as how would you collect the charges. The tower still stands in N.Y.

    I remember seeing the last tram on the road near us back sometime in the 1950's.
    We have them here in Melbourne but called light rail.
    They move a lot of people during rush hour and the fare is reasonable with free travel for seniors over the weekend.

    Last time in London, 3 years ago I saw an all electric London Transport bus on trial, and there is also an all electric train, not diesel electric as most are.

    An article today related to 'Global warming, related to t he future of the world???
    The latest source of Co2 equivalent to 12 million cars are Feral Pigs. ( Most countries have an abundance in their parliament)
    Here in the outback there are millions of them, but we are not the only country with them. Can be found in USA and many other countries.

    A scream today that the level of Co2, it fell last year, will accelerate over the next two years as the world comes out of the pandemic.
    But why the panic? Co2 only makes up 3% of the atmosphere. Nitrous Oxide make sup about 15% known as laughing gas.

    Maybe the whole thing is a laugh!!

    Tesla have announced they will build charging stations in a number of countries.
    God news, well sort of.
    Some will be built here in Oz but the cost per KWH to recharge to cover 100 klm will be about the same cost as petrol for the same distance.

    WE have a new feral gov here who will they say do more about 'climate change'.
    But the lack of understanding by so many of the population as to what constitutes a climate is a worry.
    So many have been brain washed by the 'Greens' and others they have no understanding as to what one is.

    Many confuse natural weather patterns such as droughts and floods, part of the natural cycle here in Oz, as to the climate.
    No or little understanding of how seasons have a bearing on climates or the fact that what defines a climate will not change.

    NZ has recently found on rocks now bear of snow and ice that about 180,000 years ago it was like that then with plants growing on it.
    Just part of a cycle maybe as for 150,000 years it was ice bound after that time.
