Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
This is the same government led by a professing Christian that was voted in against the Labor Party’s Climate scam. NOW, ‘The Morrison government will pledge $178 million in new funding for charging stations and other technology to encourage the uptake of low-emissions vehicles.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Energy Minister Angus Taylor will on Tuesday morning unveil their “Future Fuels and Vehicles Strategy” as part of their recently-made commitment to reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
An estimated 1.7 million electric vehicles are predicted to be on Australian roads by 2030, reducing emissions by more than eight metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2035.
The total volume of greenhouse gas emissions in Australia for the twelve months to March 2021 were estimated to be 494.2 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, according to federal government data.
The Morrison government intends for charging infrastructure to be installed in more than 50,000 households and for public charging stations to be conveniently accessible for up to 84 per cent of the Australian population.
In a joint statement, Mr Morrison and Mr Taylor said a fund worth a total of $250 million would support business fleets and new technologies for long-distance and heavy duty vehicles.
They said their cleaner cars strategy was expected to result in more than $500 million of combined private and public co-investment and more than 2600 new jobs.
The government says it will fund both public electric vehicle charging stations and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure, leaving the door open for both traditional and hydrogen powered electric cars on Australian roads.
It has promised to co-invest with households on smart chargers, as it works on upgrading the electricity grid and with states and territories to address barriers to low emissions vehicle use.
Mr Morrison said his government’s strategy would encourage consumer choice by reducing the cost of low emissions vehicles, reiterating his oft-repeated line of “technology not taxes”.
“Australians love their family sedan, farmers rely on their trusted ute and our economy counts on trucks and trains to deliver goods from coast to coast,” he said.
“We will not be forcing Australians out of the car they want to drive or penalising those who can least afford it through bans or taxes.”
Electric vehicles became a vexed issue at the last federal election in 2019 when Scott Morrison and then-small business minister Michael Cash attacked Labor over their policy.
Both the Coalition and Labor had policies on electric vehicles but Mr Morrison claimed the opposition wanted to “ram it down the necks of all Australians” because they had a goal of 50 per cent electric cars by 2030.
Mr Morrison accused then-opposition leader Bill Shorten of wanting to “end the weekend” with vehicles that allegedly wouldn’t be able to tow a boat or take a family camping.
The rhetoric reached a fever pitch when Ms Cash declared: “We are going to stand by our tradies and we are going to save their utes”.
The Electric Vehicle Council reported that battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles hit a record 8688 sales in the first half of 2021, up from 6900 in the whole of 2020.’https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/climate-change/prime-minister-scott-morrison-to-unveil-plan-for-more-electric-vehicles/news-story/a2e8dd7f361b8bd82942e42cd4a1a87b
