    TNT have had some electric trucks working from their base in Washington, they were made in Washington also by Smiths Electric Vehicles who have a long history in that field, mainly things like milk floats originally; according to my TNT driver acquaintance they have not been too successful.
    Also the electric buses which ran a circular from city centre to Quayside in Newcastle seem to have faded away

    LNG fuelled trucks and buses are also growing in popularity

    Electric cars are only a stop gap until Hydrogen cars are fully developed, Hyundai are currently making them in South Korea.
    Our feral gov has six in trial, in London a Hydrogen Train has been developed.

    Here on Friday there is to be a rally against Climate Change.
    Young children, as young as six, will be taken from school to march in it.

    This is the work of the 'Greens' who want the voting age dropped to as low as 12????????????????

    But of course at that age the students are very susceptable to brain washing. Beat the drum long enough and loud enough and some will listen.
    It is known as propaganda, something that worked very well in WW2.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    It is no surprise the Guardian paper in Oz is posting pictures about 'Climate Change', they are one of the most radical papers we have.

    But the fact is Oz is a land of droughts and floods, always ahs been always will.
    But it could be changes if the polis wished it so.

    It is not the driest continent on earth as many like to say, we do get excessive rain fall but do nothing to harvest it.

    The pictures are not truly representative as, is the case with most, they can be distorted to suit the occasion.

    We currently have a recycling crisis on our hands, why, because previous Labor gov decided to send our waste to China and other countries to use.
    Those countries have now rejected any more so we are stuck with mountains of it.

    So now we have to find ways to recycle the plastics and other items, and begin, as in Sweden, Finland and Singapore to burn the house hold rubbish to generate power.
    So do not be side lined by media comments about our situation here in Oz.
    Yes we are currently having some bad bush fires, nothing new there, caused in many cases by man in his ignorance.
    A cigarette but dropped rom a car, spark from an angle grinder, easy to start a fire, then some deliberately lit and lightening strikes starting some.

    But of course if we were allowed to clear some areas to prevent fires, as was the way the Aboriginals did it, things would be different but the 'Greens' spend so much time preventing this.

    Then there is the fact that a great number of trees here require fire to open new seeds, the Aboriginals knew that and began fires for that purpose.

    So if you want to post articles about Oz do not do it in a casual manner as one does, look a bit deeper and outside of the square.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    They could dump the rubbish in those huge open cast mine sites and when full they can be capped and run generators on the off gas for years, providing cheap electricity.

    Climate change is endangering children and threatening their futures.

    Climate change puts children’s most basic rights at risk, seriously affecting their access to health, food, water, clean air, education and protection. Around the world, the growing number of extreme weather events is putting more and more children’s live’s in danger. Every year, environmental factors take the lives of 1.7 million children under five.
    For an even greater number of children, these events mean a reduced chance of a happy, healthy future. When floods hit, schools and health clinics are destroyed. When droughts occur, children spend less time in school because they have to walk miles every day to collect water. Rising sea levels and toxic air pollution turn the communities that children call home into hazardous environments to grow up in.

    These aren’t problems that can wait. They are problems right now, and Unicef is working tirelessly to help solve.

    there are no rising sea levels at the moment, I have been monitoring the sea level in Fleetwood on the Irish Sea coast for over 20 years, I have a house right on the sea wall, if I jump over the fence I land in the sea, that is how close it is, the sea levels for the various tides have NOT Increased by one inch.
    For the increase of one metre we would need an extra 37,000,000,000,000 Cubic metres of water.
    I do not know where you are going to get all that water from.
    you cannot make water, The amount of water on this planet is the same as it was 5,000,000,000 years ago.

    Volcanoes can have a devastating effect on the weather patterns. But no one blames a Volcano, What would they do? Plug every volcano??
    When Krakatoa erupted the weather was affected world wide, even here in the UK 10,000 miles away, When Mount St Helens erupted , in Washington State 8,000 miles away, we were covered in its dust. I climbed Mount St Helens afterwards to see the most devastation I have ever seen, it was like a Nuclear holocaust,
    Many Volcanoes are in permanent eruption world wide, Go to the Big Island of Hawaii, I have been many times and am going again next March to see the None stop lava floes, several types of poisonous gases pouring out into the atmosphere none stop. Boiling lava flowing none stop into the Pacific Ocean, the sea water is Boiling, this is heating up the oceans, which creates more rain, BUT No one is stopping the Lava flows or even mention it, WHY??
    Giant Solar Flares pour out of the sun at various intervals, these affect weather patterns, but no one mentions it or even know about it.
    Because it is easier to Tax my little car.
    Wars have been going on None Stop ever since WW2 Big Polluters are wars, BUT No one stops them, WHY?? Because it is easier to tax my little car.
    The earth is a big living breathing beast, it will continue to do what it has always done.

    All these Arm Chair Critics should get out across the world and see all these things for themselves, instead of reading Fake News on google or newspapers.
    So why persecute my little car that only sees the road one day a week,?? 260 a year green Tax. and what do they do with the money.??? Throw the pound notes at the sun???

    To be honest, I would take the advice from the many experts over a few individuals.

    Earlier generations went to war to safeguard a future.

    This generation must at least care for the young now that may inherit a mess, beyond
    by then there control.

    Our children deserve better, any parent would want the best for the new generation.


    As said there is no planet B.

    Hi Keith
    What is your answer to Volcanoes then.
    There are Hundreds of them world wide, all active
    I have seen the Pacific Ocean covered with Pumice floating on top, thousands of square yards of it from Under the sea Volcanoes, all erupting spewing out gases through the surface, heating up the oceans that effect the weather patterns.
    Off the West Indies and Iceland and the Antarctic, are many undersea Volcanoes again all active with gases and pollution.
    In 2009, when I was in the Antarctic I was swimming in the very warm waters of Desolation Island surrounded by ice, it was from the Volcano, this was heating the Antarctic Ocean.
    Why do the Greens Never mention it , it is always my little car that is doing the damage.

    There is a big world out there, I am sure you could afford to go and see and feel the effects of these volcanoes, better than reading Fake News.

    As you say volcanoes have been around for a long time and are part
    of mother nature, the gas guzzling old car is in reality something that
    will be gone along with millions of others.

    The planet needs a complete make over regardless.
