EV tax as bad as choosing future for the fax machine ahead of email

Governments in denial across Australia are trying impose a deadly vehicle tax on Electric Vehicles.  

A study commissioned by the International Council on Clean Transportation concludes that each year over 369,000 people die globally due to vehicle emissions and as Australia makes up about 0.33% of the world population that means we're losing 1440 Australians to deadly car exhaust emissions each yer.

An article in the Sydney Morning Herald puts the deaths in NSW each year at around 650 which means the extrapolation from the world study is in fact conservative.

Generous Australians are now stumping up their heard earned cash to buy electric vehicles at a point in time when electric vehicles (at least in up front comparative terms) are quite a bit more expensive than deadly dangerous belching (call it puffing billy if you will) old world cars that most Australians are still buying.    

Until the time when electric vehicles which are on a demonstrated downward cost curve can match the upfront cost of their fossil fuel cousins then it makes no sense whatsoever to be applying a tax and that's why countless countries, cities, states and provinces globally have EV incentives to actually make them cheaper.  EVs equal health and in a country that prides itself on high quality healthcare, health outcomes and health awareness seemingly pandering to fossil fuel companies in order to prolong the life of dirty oil is just crazy and counter intuitive. 

The Australia Institute has put together a stop the EV tax petition which we recommend you sign

They have even got a one hour webinar if you want to find out more in detail.
