Push for all transport in NSW to become electric

New South Wales Transport Minister, Andrew Constance, has announced a very ambitious target – for every car, bus and truck throughout the state to become electric.

Could this be yet another stepping stone towards the Agenda 2030 driverless vehicle vision?

AN AMBITIOUS TARGET

NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance says he’s determined to see the electrification of all cars, buses and trucks in the state, it has been revealed this week.

Constance raised eyebrows when he stated the New South Wales government will look to electrify its entire network by the year 2030 to ‘improve air quality’ in regions like Sydney.

“I am the first state minister in our history trying to drive the electrification of transport vehicles for the purposes of health,” he told reporters.

“Our infrastructure has to meet all environmental requirements… but my aim is to make this issue redundant by electrifying all cars, buses and trucks.”

Saving the planet!

It was also announced that public transport fares will increase in NSW over the next year, but we will ignore how this will ultimately lead back to sting the consumer’s pocket for now.

How did this idea of electrification come about?

The new focus follows ‘research’ that suggested health impacts from multi-billion-dollar transport projects under the government are being ignored.    

Patrick Harris, from the Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation at the University of NSW, weighed in on some of the public interest that is of primary importance:

After the fires, the quality of the air we breathe is a major health concern, particularly in the basin like Sydney, where ultimately we have to do everything to do to protect community health,” he said.

Interesting.

The Australian bushfires are cited as the reason people are now facing health concerns?

Thus, are also the reason that the electrification of all vehicles in New South Wales is needed?

Sounds a bit fishy to me.

Perhaps.. like this may have all been by design?

PROBLEM, REACTION, SOLUTION

There has always been a continued push for a ‘greener Australia’ since the days of the Carbon Tax, but in recent years, the international shift has taken to new heights.

More individuals cry out for ‘solutions’ to protect them from the dangers of a changing climate.

Especially since the bushfires, which we aptly named ‘The Beginning of Agenda 2030 in Australia‘.

On deeper examination beneath the surface of this announcement, we can see that once again, this event is being used to push the climate transition forward.

Just take a look at this recent feature piece written by Andrew Constance himself in The Guardian to justify the transition to electric vehicles in NSW:

Right before your eyes, ladies and gentlemen.

Emotional language and a call-to-arms for action following “a major climatic event”.

Oh, it was major, alright.

Let’s not forget the Australian bushfires gained international notoriety with their explicit link to proposed smart city projects, particularly high-speed rail and infrastructure plans.

We were already told these projects will kickstart the economy after COVID-19.

Now, as predicted, the narrative will be used as a major anchor to usher in climate reform.

“We can’t spend any more time, or expend any more energy, debating climate change.”

The debate is over, citizen! Muh bushfires settles it!

Sorry, Mr. Constance, you’re right. Let’s just ignore the opposing evidence that is suppressed.

This is how the establishment operates, folks.

Create the problem, garner the reaction and offer the solution.

But Ethan — why is the electrification of vehicles so much of an issue?

Why wouldn’t we want cleaner air and roads?

Although inconspicuous at present, this plan is just one step in a larger dystopian transformation.

THE END OF PRIVATE VEHICLES

Three-fifths of new cars must be electric by 2030 to meet greenhouse gas targets, ministers at the UN Committee on Climate Change have been warned.

This is a direct Agenda 2030 initiative.

The committee wants 30% to 70% of new cars to be ultra-low emission by 2030, as well as up to 40% of new vans, as part of efforts to phase out sales of conventional petrol and diesel versions.

The New South Wales government announced in 2019 plans to privatise bus services in Sydney’s north-western suburbs, lower-north shore, northern beaches and eastern suburbs.

Who is influencing this push?

This week, G7 nations have agreed to step up action on climate change with a renewed a pledge to raise $100bn a year to help poor countries cut emissions.

G7 leaders also promised to help developing countries move away from coal.

Electric vehicles seem like a good idea at first.

However, they are a direct gateway that will lead to the normalisation of driverless vehicles.

Think of Tesla: They are electric, and because of this, can support driverless features.

These features have already become so popular that there is footage circulating of people falling asleep at the wheel on their morning commute on highways in the U.S.

This new-age of vehicles are also set to reap a plethora of surveillance measures, including black-box data recorders which monitor everything, from a vehicle’s speed to ‘driver condition’.

It seems like the scene of a science fiction novel: Humans travelling around in cars that they are not in control of, connected by a linked network of sensors and algorithms.

This is no longer sci-fi dream, however, and is on the way to becoming a reality in this country. 

According to a report by LEK Consulting, Australia is set reap billions of dollars via the adoption of ‘new mobility’, while private vehicle ownership dries up almost completely.

Economic modelling predicts innovative transport systems led by autonomous vehicles will generate $62 billion in Australia, and with this change, you will be in the minority if you own a car by 2050. 

Electric vehicles (EV), AVs, ride-sharing, car-sharing and a wider range of public transport options will negate the need for personal vehicles, says the firm.

The development of highly-sophisticated ‘smart cities’ across Australia will accompany this transition, allowing for advanced automated data collection through new network capabilities.

Under this vision, when you get in your self-driving car to go to work, it will first suggest that it drives you to work. Then, along the way, it may suggest a stop at a local coffee shop, before alerting you to various sales items you may need along your route to work. 

Andrew Frankel, a Drive Nation journalist, described in an article that “..our cars will retain every detail of your every journey, and you don’t need to be an Orwell scholar to spot something disturbingly Big Brother about that.

Painted as the answer to our worries, many are failing to recognise what these mechanisms will ultimately bring about and ties to the larger agenda at hand.

Or perhaps I am just too ‘conspiracy minded’..

  1. What a ridiculous idea. Australia could drop off the earth tomorrow and it would make not one jot of difference to the composition of earth’s atmosphere. 25 million people next to 1.5 Billion in China alone?

    Aside from that, man-made climate change from CO2 is such a passe notion, do we still take this seriously? I believed it for 30 years, but it just doesn’t add up any more.

    It’s also totally unworkable. even a small increase in charging for electric vehicles would break the grid. No way can wind or solar make this up, and certainly not without hugely increasing fossil fuel energy to build the infrastructure.

    This idea has failure built in, so, humour them, let them try.

  2. Quislings like Constance, Keen, Turnbull et al should be sent to gaol and the key thrown away. Yes, they are acting on behalf of the globalist-parasites to try to enact Agenda 2030. Normally my “Quisling of the Week” award is quax-related (and has thus become “Quaxling of the Week”, but this nonsense sure puts Constance in the running for this week, so may have to revert to the old “Quisling”.

  3. I don’t see petrol or diesel vehicles disappearing anytime soon especially not within the next decade maybe in the next 20 to 30 years, but we’ll see.

  4. All cars in metro areas is plausible to be electric, but to say all trucks as well, I don’t think it would be efficient at all for a 22t + truck travelling from Melbourne to Brisbane being electric and having to stop and recharge all the time. Also the fact that renewables will not be able to power the grid if we have every thing in our life relying on the electrical grid. And even if the grid was powered by renewables, the fact that wind turbines, solar panels are manufactured in china which uses fossil fuels for energy/power still defeats the purpose of them anyway. The two biggest scams other than covid of course happening right now are electric vehicles and how they reduce impact on the environment and CO2 and its affects and businesses becoming zero emitters of CO2. Yeah they are becoming that by changing their plant to trap that CO2 then they sell it off to gas manufactures who then remove the actual bad stuff/impurities like hydrocarbons, acetyldehydes etc and then sell the CO2 off to customers who then put this CO2 in our food and beverages for people to consume, so please tell me more how CO2 is a bad thing? Trying to explain to people that plants breathe in CO2 and breathe out O2 for us to then breathe you would think would be easy, but the confused looks I get makes me lose a lot faith in our education system and people in general to have any form of common sense.
