In the Netherlands we simply unmask the ratio and show the people how ridiculous the plan is. A bit like CO2, melting ice caps, acid rain, phosphate in washing powder, and the like.
Nice lobby of those 'green terrorists', not so good for the rational person, neither for a state. Since those revelations, support for green parties have plummeted in this country. From about 15% to now a bit over 3%. Still too large, but the ratio has came back into discussion.
And quite frankly, did you know that it takes an electrical car to be driven for at least 30K miles per year as economically as possible for 7 years in row to be better for climate then a normal car?
And that they recently tested on large scale leased 'green' cars and how fuel economically the persons driving it where?
1 person drove it with an MPG of 20! But there was also a guy who miraculously did 225 MPG, mainly due to very smart planning, maximizing use of the (very limited) battery power and driving fairly short distances (never over 30 miles).
Conclusion also which was really devastating for the battery powered cars: Radius is that limited that normal everyday use really isn't working with battery power only. It was only 25% of what was claimed by companies.
Driving a BMW318i with LPG at the moment. Had a 2.0 RAV4.1 1997 3drs 4WD euro model w/ABS dual sunroof blue two tone previously.
