MORRISON GIVES SUPPORT TO LABOR’S CRAZY CAR CULL

Just days after Scott Morrison announced he wanted to send votes to the Labor party, Bill Shorten has announced he wants to get rid of half the cars in Australia and replace them with ones powered by batteries.

This is the kind of left wing nonsense that Scott Morrison is endorsing!

This crazy car cull would require massive amounts of government regulation, drive up the prices of cars, fuel and electricity!

This loopy plan shows you how out of touch the Liberals and Labor are with people in rural and regional areas.

You simply cannot travel the distances you need to travel in rural and regional Australia in a battery powered car. And when this car cull comes it will hurt people in these communities the worst.

    Bill Shorton is short on detail and costings for his electric car fiasco, unfortunately for us scomo is close behind with his climate change policies.
    Both so called leaders will be responsible for inflicting massive damage to our economy and the future of our children and grandchildren,

      i am disgusted that Liberals are padding their preferences to Labor. In this case how can anyone vote for Liberals?? If ALP gets into powers it will be the end of life for many people in Australia. Self funded retirees, Mums and Dads trying to assure they are self for their retirement. These people will be crucified. Is Bill going to ensure there will be a pension for all for ever and ever? Labor is destroying small businesses in Qld, Look at the number of shop closures, for lease signs,. Oh yes, the Taxi Industry and the income of approx. 60,000 plus people associated with same. Current ALP & LNP Political Parties have lost the plot and fail to work for the good of Australia and its People.

    This is just another way of bringing in Communism. “You MUST have electric cars by 2030” Who the hell does this rapist criminal think he is. These leftists only think of themselves, city dwellers and stuff the rest. Just like the manual workers out there, stuff them we will shut down industry, more unemployment and poverty for real Aussies. It’s the demise of all we Aussies stand for, Mateship.

    Today in Australia there are approximately over 1.4 million cars in Australia.
    By 2030, if Bill Shorten’s plan comes into existence there will be at least 800,000 electric cars on our roads. (50%) If each car requires at least a 40KW (40,000 watts) charge every 24 hours during the week you will need an additional 32 GigaWatts of electric power. ( 32,000,000,000 watts )

    As 90% of electric cars are charged at night, where is the base load power coming from to charge these vehicles? The average power output of a coal fired power station is 667 Mega Watts. (U.S.A. figures – 667,000,000 watts)

    Is Mr Shorten going to build an additional 3 or 4 coal fired power stations across Australia to cope with this demand on the grid, or will electric car owners just have to wait until the sun shines to charge them?

    Feel free to contribute if you have better numbers or any idea where the electricity is going to come from to charge electric vehicles at night.
    No wonder there was NO costing released on this “thought bubble” when it was announced from the Labor Party this week…….. This Labor Party policy will save our planet from a climate change catastrophe, really?

      It’s good to see an intelligent reply here with numbers to back it.

      I think if they implement a system like Holland where the close to the city you live your car must have a certain “green” rating it could be a viable idea but there has to be so much more infistructure put in place first.

      Building of power plants and solar farm is what we need and so does the workforce, it’s getting very hard to even make ends meat these days and good jobs are bloody hard to get most people are living quite touch and in alot of debt already and now they plan to force them to buy a new car they can’t afford and no doubt pay higher power bills.

      I personally have no faith in any of the major parties and believe a major public revolt against government is on the way.

    Reading Australian Bureau of Statistics 9309.0 Motor Vehicle Sensus Australia, 19.2 million vehicles were registered in 2018. 74.7%, (approx. 14.3 Million) were passenger vehicles. If Labor implements its policy to replace half in 10 years (approx. 7.1 million) with Electric cars and we paid an average of $30,000 per car, that would cost Australians $213,000,000,000 (213 billion). Given that we don’t make cars in Australia (thanks to the liberal and Labor governments) all that wealth will go overseas. Even worse is the resale value on you trade in will drop to almost zero as no one will be able to buy them (no market for them). Then comes the Hugh cost of installing battery charges, expanding the power grid and the cost of disposing of 7.1 million car battery units every 10 years. We cannot even supply enough power now for industry and homes all year round (which will become harder as old coal fired power stations are retire). Power cost per kilowatt hour will go even higher as demand outstrips supply. This adds up to a cost of living disaster for most Australians. Why not convert all cars to gas, Would half emissions, cheaper to do and to run. Australia has more than enough and would cut our reliance on overseas fuels.

    Bill Shortons Electric cars are just another stupid plan of his, whats next ? Electric powered Jets? I haven’t heard anyone complain about the amount of Jet planes flying around the Australia and the World, or what about Cruise ships, boats etc. Just how Stupid do they think we all are. I have Virgin Qantas Jetstar etc flying over my house every couple of minutes and nothings mentioned about this. I’m so sick of the Stupid policies from Bill Shorten, The Greens and The Liberals are also jumping on board. We need to get back to Coal fired power and prices would eventually drop, not these stupid ideas that are costing our Country its future.
