’Scummo is pretty shit at being a PM, eh? He has known of the need to boost supplies, has done nothing.

I want us to run out of fuel and people realize that there are only about 7,000 vehicles in Australia that are working, might wake a few people up.....including those in politics , remember there are no State governments making a effort either... Just making their fleets electric would make a huge impact...

Need more than that—restore restrictions of ownership of media like we used to have. Fuck Murdoch.

it's a shame the James pulled out, he is a member of the board with Tesla.... I don't blame him though....
the biggest beneficial change would be not letting industry, financially influence the government... Specially during elections...

Norway the leader is around 70%
my sister is looking at buying one over there ... her 16 yr old son took her merc for a 6 hr joy ride, so rather than repair it, she's looking to flog it off and replace it with a tesla ... says that way she can disable the car off with an App on her phone when she's at work so her son doesn't get tempted again

I was watching the Tesla files on SBS which mentioned that EV Cars were produced in 1904 and the entrepreneur Morgan, who had interest in oil, managed to cause it to fail.

nah, it was just technology, at that stage a Internal combustion motor and Fossil Fuel were much,much more efficient than a electric motor and battery.... Now it's the other way around, with a electric powertrain being 4 times more efficient than a Motor..
same conspiracy could be said about steam power..... the cheapest way to supply our needs is usually chosen..

for example airplanes are still at the baby stage of going electric.. New inovations will change that especially now money is being spent on developing them...
If however more energy had been put into developing EV's from the start we would of probably seen implementation much sooner...

Once a big industry is established it tends to stifle innovation into completely new ways of doing things—sunk capital assumes an importance it does not have, only profitability and survival matter.

Batteries were overlooked for the bulk of the last century.
I suppose that goes with monks idea of sunk capital but then again complexes were being imagined to supply air domination for warfare via ever ready standing armies so the idea of science being political stands firm aswell.

“With recycling yields exceeding 90% by weight, our business is a major contributor to the sustainability of the battery industry.”


Reports put Envirostream’s recycling capacity at 3,000 tonnes per annum.


In a statement made to the ASX , Envirostream Australia said that its two-year-long EV battery recycling trials, which were conducted on six different types of batteries, all went without incident.


Another nail in the coffin for those trying desperately to say Electric Vehical are worse for the enviroment that Fossil fueled ones....

ohhh and a report to debunk it more

not I, though if self generating would be a power source not a battery....
Researchers Test Battery Powered by Nuclear Waste

Waste Potential

An energy startup called NDB says it’s making progress on a battery technology powered by small pieces of nuclear waste.

In fact, it’s claiming that a pair of tests at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Cambridge University show that the battery is already managing a 40 percent charge. When the tech matures, it hopes the batteries could last for between a decade and 28,000 years — an extraordinary energy breakthrough which, if it actually came to pass, could revolutionize everything from electric transportation to personal electronics.

Double A

A detailed writeup in New Atlas lists a series of incredible claims by NDB. The nano-diamond batteries give off less radiation than the human body, according to the company, would be safe in car accidents, and could cost less than a lithium-ion battery. The cells could be made in any form factor, it says, including iconic ones like AA.

So if you’re talking about electric vehicles, our battery could run for around 90 years without the requirement of recharging,” Nima Golsharifi, NDB’s CEO, told New Atlas in an extended interview transcript.
