It will if they stop selling petrol and diesel….but as you say that wont happen because unfortunately for our species the money behind oil and gas will not allow that to happen.

Ill settle for a major transition to electric vehicles in NZ at least and the sooner the better. Not much point in Australia until they get some of their power generation from renewable sources. Same goes for US, I guess.

My next car will be an electric one and it wont be long before I have an electric motorbike of some sort. Might be a scooter, might be a fancy MTB but it will be electric.

Its a pretty crazy situation when we have the Molesworth closed because of elevated fire risk and the Nevis road closed because of flooding. Statistically, Twizel should be about perfect!!
