NOT THE ANSWER
Unfortunately rechargeable cars are NOT the way of the future as they rely on outside energy, usually sourced from nonrenewable and un-eco friendly resources.
The true way ahead for motorised transport, is with vehicles that can produce their own energy from renewable resources as in the ‘‘hydrogen cell’’ or hydrogen fuelled vehicles.
The benefit of a hydrogen cell is that when you are finished traveling it can also be used to energise your home, probably six times over, and the benefit of hydrogen-powered vehicles is that the only emissions are water vapour.
Our Government seems to be dragging its feet installing the required infrastructure, probably due to oil company back-hands.
NZ did start to move towards ‘‘syn-fuel’’, other alternate and renewable fuel sources in the 1980’s, but the Labour Government and Mr. Lange stamped it to death out of sheer ignorance.
They couldn’t see a few dollars paid out today will save the country billions and the next few decades.
Never mind, at least they helped the country out by selling off all the potentially money making enterprises, thanks Mr. Prebble. Al Winder Palmerston North
