Thank you for your e-mail “tax, tax and more tax” earlier today. You say National supports greening the vehicle fleet through incentives, not penalties. You say your polices saw the number of electric vehicles on our roads increase hugely.
Well … I don’t support “greening the vehicle fleet”, because New Zealand simply doesn’t have a problem with vehicle emissions.
Electric vehicles might well suit urban commuters, but they are not fit for our economy that is based on agriculture, while commuters need incentives to leave the car at home rather than congesting city centers at rush hour.
Incentives are just like taxes, because ultimately our country has to pay for them one way or the other, so I think electric vehicles should pay road usage charges just like the diesel vehicles.
We need a government with the courage to defend our economy against international competition from countries who really don’t care about green issues, especially because “climate emergency” is a myth, CO2 is essential to life on Earth and the free market will regulate more effectively than an army of bureaucrats.
Having experienced first hand the outrageous abuse of power by judiciary and legal profession, as well as from local authorities who are not answerable to the law even, I believe we need a written constitution to safeguard citizens rights against abuse from a creeping totalitarian Marxist NWO.
Sir Geoffrey Winston Russell Palmer, a South Islander has mooted this idea and wrote books on it:
A Constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand (2016)
Towards Democratic Renewal: Ideas for Constitutional Change in New Zealand (2018).
The important thing for New Zealand with our fast changing bi-cultural demographic is that we need one law that guarantees equal rights for all citizens.
The government claim we need to prioritise transport emissions reductions. We can make submissions to the Ministry of Transport here: https://transport.cwp.govt.nz/multi-modal/climatechange/electric-vehicles/clean-cars/
Here are some of the replies I gave to their consultation:
What incenses me is the sheer stupidity of these “experts”. They went blundering into Paris agreement and have been chomping at the bit to declare a climate emergency ever since.
Don’t they understand how very little the whole of humanity can possibly do to affect global climate, even if we were all acting in unison? Don’t they know that rival countries are going to continue doing 100s of times more damage than New Zealand ever could? All we will achieve is handing our productive industries to them and bankrupting our own economy in the process.
They make so many dumb assumptions, but once we have whole fleets of
EV’s charging overnight, cheap rate electricity prices will disappear.
One way or the other our country is going to have to pay for the roads
for all the vehicles that use them. All of their cunningly calculated
economies will disappear faster than they can regulate.
We may even have to build more coal power stations to meet increased demand which completely defeats the whole purpose.
Their consultation was totally based on the assumption that we, the people, agree about the need to reduce carbon footprint artificially, but I for one don’t. I think, let fossil fuels run their natural course while we as an independent nation focus on preparing for the future with a sustainable and skilled population. To retain our own culture and sovereignty and above all, free from all the crap raining down from the UN dictators.
I may come back and add some more writing and would be happy to engage intelligent discussion.
10 days left to make a submission to the government about their climate change “emergency”.
I wrote that crippling our own industry while importing produce from countries that continue to pollute is the dumbest thing we can do for the climate and that we should instead protect our industry and economy and prepare for inevitable coming changes as the Earth returns to her warmer high carbon natural state..
I asked that they stop letting the UN dictate policy and start representing what we, the people of New Zealand are asking for.
