    The longevity of the electric car battery is the unknown factor. Mine is seven years old this year, and not a smidgeon of reduction of power. It might last fifty years, throwing out the sums presented to a certain extent. The only reason we need batteries is because hydrogen cars have been blocked. People could be splitting water using solar power at home, but the vital ingredient Lithium-6 (a tiny amount for a catalyst) has been banned as it is a component of the nuclear power industry as the excuse. Its use is not banned, but it is illegal to buy and sell Lithium-6. Some techies have produced their own at home but it is a highly advanced process needing an atomic collider. People buying hydrogen cars are forced to buy pressurised hydrogen as a fuel which is not available except in very few locations. Hydrogen cars are electric cars by the way. I would be more than happy to move to hydrogen next time I buy a car, but where is the political movement to help hydrogen which would make lithium batteries obsolete, as well as Big Oil? We’re being shoved back onto diesel and petrol which cripple people’s health with toxic air. Do I see Big Oil money behind the anti-electric car movement? Hydrogen please. From water made at home. They’ll never pay campaigners to advocate for that. These people are not environmentalists in my opinion but paid for oil campaigners. They’re bound to be out there given how much money is at stake.

    Electric vehicles have been around for at least 100 years?

    The point is councils are implementing Agenda2030 policy based on the carbon zero lie which involves electric cars, wind turbines and solar panels. Let the market do its thing and let councils concern themselves with their constituents best interests.

    I am aware of the local activists in East Anglia from Colchester to Sudbury to Thetford. I do not sense any oil company paid agents.

    Who cares what technology is made available via the free capitalist market, but please, not the state centralised carbon cult agenda.
