What will people do when their electric cars ~ too often “fuelled” by coal-fired electrical generating plants ~ need an urgent re-charge?
Apparently, they will call for a diesel generator towed by a gas-powered van to come to the rescue.
China is, some sources report, leading the world in electric car production, but most of the electricity used to power those vehicles comes from coal-powered plants, according to the Wall Street Journal:
Meanwhile, many Canadians, many of them funded by US groups, want to close down Canadian oil production and prevent Canadian natural gas from getting to world markets and want to end the Canadian nuclear energy programme.
Canada needs a sane climate change policy: one that acts locally to help fight global climate change. For a start, that means doing whatever it takes to get clean(er) Canadian oil and natural gas to world markets to help replace coal and, it mans exporting new Canadian nuclear reactors to the world.
Electric cars are a great idea, but not if they are powered by coal-fired electrical plants. Canada can and should be helping to reduce the world’s use of coal … but we’re not because Justin Trudeau is leading our government and it seems clear to me that he really, really doesn’t understand the issue of greenhouse gas emissions at all. While countries like Australia and Singapore are taking radical action to find a better way to power their futures, Canada tries to shut down our sources of clean, ethical energy that the world wants and needs.
