You're putting forward suggestions for various CC measure in reply to my posts, implies that I do not support that, and that I do not support consumer EV's.
My point is quite clear, I support all measures to reduce emissions. If the bulk of emissions was from consumers commuting to work, then I would support measures for that. Consumers commuting does cause emissions, but of the 3.8 million light class vehicles we have, there are many more vehicle demographics that are emitting more CO2 than that. Add in buses, light trains all of which can be electric, they reduce emissions as they take cars off the road. A poster here gave a list of measures that would do more. I can get more used EV's on the road than your subsidy will, hence more consumers driving them
Its about spending X$ and reducing more emissions for the dollar. As in lil ol NZ $ are very very limited. You cannot argue that climate change is more important, if we have no $, we have no changes.
Well yeah, you don't support directly subsidising consumer EVs - how am I wrong about that?
I honestly don't see how a self funding subsidy like what Sweden is doing won't work in NZ. Your argument against that is "NZ isn't as rich as Sweden" but that doesn't really have much play in a self finding subsidy since the purchases of a new or new to NZ ICE vehicles would be adding funds to the subsidy on purchase and could continue to add to the subsidy each year.
