  • I'm so new it hurts!
A drone in the hands of a determined terrorist can be rigged with a small amount of explosives to cause chaos in a (for instance) football stadium. I am surprised it has not yet happened. However, a car bomb is much more of a threat, but nobody is banning cars.

 Oh yes they are, all the larger towns in France have banned me and my Diesel, it must be a threat,,  :''

We have a nice pair of nuclear power plants about 40km away at Civaux. We also have loads of those wind turbine thingys and farms round here have huge solar panel arrays on their barn roofs. I even have a solar panel in the garden but it only powers our water feature. I like my hybrid car because it is quiet and goes 650km on one tank of fuel. I believe the government are reducing tax on them soon and charging more for diesels. Your time will come :nananana:

and seats to bring his epp glider to the field, and it's a diesel, the petrol version has a 65 C02 tax on it but not the diesel,,

A Toyota Auris Sport Wagon with an old school NiMh pack with a 5 year or 100,000 Km warranty which can be extended to 10 years and 175,000 km.
A replacement battery costs around 1500.

Diesel is better for the carbon problem. Only now they realise that they pollute the streets in towns, but have not yet taxed all diesels, only those in cities. So its actually a carbon tax.

 yes you can't run a diesel ( soot ) in town, but tax the  c02 and bring down what's left of the Ozone layer,
so it's cough to death or burn from the sun with the added 'cancer' thingy,,  :''
