This whole idea of ‘transitioning’ over to electric vehicles, is starting to look more and more like a huge smokescreen to me.

One masking the true agenda behind Queensland’s ‘zero emissions’ future –getting rid of individual car ownership altogether.

You just have to take a close look at what electrifying the State’s whole transport system would entail, to understand the whole thing is completely impossible.

It means replacing ALL our petrol fuelled cars, trucks, trains, boats, motorcycles, barges and farm transport by 2050.

And probably a lot sooner given the Government’s current roadmap includes a 50% ban on combustion engine sales by 2030, and a 100% ban by 2036.

At that point they will either impose a complete ban or so many pollution taxes no-one will be able to drive them anyway.

People accepted this ‘transition’ largely because they were led to believe they will emerge from the whole process still owning some kind of car, albeit an electric one.

I see three key problems with that idea.

There’s time.

There’s scale.

And there’s cost.

Right now, there are over 1.2 billion motor vehicles in the world.

Just imagine what replacing 1.2 billion motor vehicles is going to mean in terms of energy, labour, cost and resources.

Does the world even have the number of engineers or manufacturing plants needed to build that many EVs, let alone all the new infrastructure and transmission capacity to support them?

In Queensland, we have 4,303,713 million registered motor vehicles, only 8,000 of which are electric.  That leaves 4,295,713 million vehicles to be replaced.

In 2019, Professor Richard Herrington of the Head of Earth Sciences at the British Natural History Museum, told the British Government:

“Converting UK’s vehicles to electricity by 2050 would require two times the total annual world cobalt production, nearly the entire world production of neodymium, three quarters the world’s lithium production and at least half of the world’s copper production.”

That’s just the UK!

“Society needs to understand that there is a raw-material cost of going green”, Herrington wrote.

And that’s the problem.

Governments have not been honest with people about any of this.

Last month, green energy experts admitted that 90-95 percent of the supply chain for EVs simply “DOES NOT EXIST”.

The EV CEO of Ford Motors, RJ Scaringe, spelt it out – “the world simply doesn’t have the resources or supply chain to transition ALL Americans into EVs”.

“All the world’s cell production combined represents well under 10 percent of what we will need in 10 years” he said.

Did you catch that?

90 percent to 95 percent of the EV supply chain does not even exist yet!

Say goodbye to the Kingswood!!
