I just read this, didn't see the word EV mentioned. The big issue is agriculture which is quite clear
Where is the scientist section?
Towards the end.
The growth in transport emissions and the failure to budge agriculture emissions were concerning, Massey University Emeritus Professor Ralph Sims said.
"It is deeply concerning that New Zealand has not been able to 'bend the curve downwards' in that our annual greenhouse gas emissions keep rising," he said.
"Overall we have a major problem to resolve rapidly."
Technological innovations to reduce agricultural emissions were likely still decades away, he said, and government intervention to encourage low-emissions vehicles was "long overdue"
Which we all agree. The article centered around agriculture. The only mentions being a one liner and last, probably shows the need. It should have been most of the article? It was a late one liner? Off course we want to address transport emissions. He said low emission vehicles not EV's. To start with EV's have not been available in NZ as new until very recently, so how can that be long overdue? RUC has been here for a while that is a measure, and significant financially at 70c per litre or roughly 70c per 10km. Thats quite significant
But we need to address all emissions, the large emitters are more important, and you need to look at what can be addressed relatively quickly
