    I didn’t say that small, just about 20%. A little more useable and chuckable.

    I wish they were about 20% smaller though... They’re bloody nice, but bloody huge.

    I don’t think I ever see anyone claiming they’re a panacea... Which is why I find it so annoyingly disingenuous when critics try to point out they’re not a panacea. They’re better than nothing though, and are part of the broader effort. Nothing is a panacea for emissions, with the possible...

    True, but same could be said of politics anywhere - not a phenomenon unique to Australia. It’s true...

    CH4 is still a big enough deal to worry about though, particularly in the short term. It also tends to break down into CO2 anyway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_methane#:~:text=If%20it%20is%20not%20destroyed,carbon%20dioxide%20and%20water%20vapor...

    I imagine it’s less fun if you don’t have shower and change room at work.

    The election thread - Will the new PM last a full term - who will you futilely vote for?

    Applying for a job in Germany for 6 months. I won’t get it, but it would certainly be a gamble on how long this keeps going for!! Might get stuck there at this rate

    No, I dont think so. For a start no other jurisdiction in the world has contemplated this and most are well ahead of us - what do we know that they all don’t...? Second, by the time we hit 50% EVs are normal. You drop fuel excise and apply kms tax to ALL vehicles. Or they admit fuel excise...

    I saw a brand new 2021 Tundra in Canberra the other day - ducking hooooooge.... Lot of dollars converting it to RHD.
