So much for a fossil fuel free future. I can't see no electric planes taking off any time soon.

NASA already invented the Prius of planes. As soon as it's practical I predict California will require it for domestic travel ; ). NZ govt just gave Vic uni $6m for electric engine research..

Good on them for being successful. They just need to stop whining about your carbon emissions and mine while *choosing* to travel by private jet. And they need to stop whining about inequality when *demanding* tens of millions to act in a movie.
The hypocrisy and virtue signalling is nauseating.

In New Zealand, the mentality is "it's never happened before, why are you worried?".


It's never happened before, she'll be right.


Even if it's happened once, they call it a 1 in a 100 (or other number) year event, and so she'll also be right.



Yep, and it almost happened again this last weekend... An alarm was raised, after a full day off it was deemed fit for purpose. But is it?
