NOT THE AN­SWER

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

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

There’s an op­por­tu­nity to check out elec­tric cars this Satur­day in The Square.
