In­sider deal­ing

Shooting Gazette - - The Review -

It has re­cently been an­nounced that only elec­tri­fied cars will be sold in the UK from 2040. While this doesn’t mean the death of the in­ter­nal com­bus­tion en­gine, as hy­brids are ex­empt from this, it does beg a few ques­tions. One does have to won­der where all the elec­tric­ity for these cars is go­ing to come from, given that brown outs are be­ing pre­dicted as it is. Fur­ther­more, the in­fra­struc­ture of charg­ing points, es­pe­cially for peo­ple who park on the street, is go­ing to take some se­ri­ous think­ing about. And lastly, the types of bat­ter­ies used in cars are far from the most en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly things to make or re­cy­cle just now, so some rad­i­cal re­think­ing is re­quired for this grand pol­icy pro­nounce­ment not to backfire badly.
