    Ten years tick tock the bell tolls for NZ petrol power

    I always suspected this is why Labour was so eager to carry the greens when they don't need their votes.
    The Green Party is going to ram this crap through and Jacinta will be able to wash her hands of it.
    Totally fits in with agenda 2030 timeline...
    Massive ramifications for the economy, so many flow on jobs will be toast...
    I don't think they have any idea of how many commercial applications need the flexibility and energy density petrol and diesel power offers.
    Sure battery technology is increasing but still major problems in battery weight vs storage and recharge times...

    We'll be walking only anyway by then. The way NZTA is reducing speed limits, anything faster than walking pace would be considered dangerous soon.

    Jobs will be created in the new sectors ... remember the move from horse-drawn to internal combustion? No, of course you don't - so let me say that lots of jobs caring for horses, driving and riding horse, markets for hay etc to feed them, harness manufacturers - all went out the window - and new jobs were created around internal combustion engines .. it will happen again.

    When the fossil fuel runs out those businesses relying on it will be toast anyway ..

    Horse drawn coaches had drivers. As do the bus's and trucks and cars that replaced the horse drawn vehicles.

    With the introduction of internal combustion engines ... people had to man petrol stations and workshops/garages to repair and maintain them. In most cases ... the people that looked after the horses ... now (after some [usually very little] degree of up-skilling) looked after the motor vehicles. Farriers often became mechanics. Fuel had to be transported to the petrol stations throughout the country. Petrol could not be "Made" locally as hay could be. Vehicle parts distribution became a necessity ... and vehicle assembly workers became an actual occupation. The horse associated workers and suppliers never really went out of business. Even today ... a portion of local economies even today are based on horse related products.

    With the introduction of internal combustion vehicles ... MORE jobs were created ... than lost.

    Advice to many that are nowhere near retirement age yet ... start up-skilling to the new fuel systems ... or you might miss your chance.

    THat was during Industrial Age, now we are headed into totally automated systems. Electric cars will be sealed units unserviceable like a MacBook or iPhone.
    (Before some tech geek responds I know you can replace some parts on them but you get idea)
    Fossil fuel wont run out its an abiotic process...
    And the sacrilegious wind turbines need dinosaur oil as its the only thing barely good enough to lube the massive shear forces in their gearboxes.

    Internal combustion engines are not sustainable. Check out where the share market money is going, yes to sustainable products, environmentally friendly. Bring on agenda 2030 or just bury your head in the sand.
