The transportation system in Australia is changing rapidly from the use of imported fossil fuels to electricity derived from Australian sun and wind, both of which we have abundant local resources.
Electric Vehicle Day Whyalla is a first for South Australia allowing people to see a range of electric cars and the various ways they are charged.
For the veterinary clinic, the change to zero emissions transport is important. Burning fossil fuels for transport, surrounds our pets with a cocktail of exhaust gases, which can have very real impacts on the health of our dogs and cats. These exhaust gases contain sulfur, Nitrous Oxide (NOx) and fine particulate matter (Soot) that damages our pets’ lungs, hearts and immune systems.
Electric vehicles have no emissions, keep getting better over time, through over the air updates, are much cheaper to operate, require much less servicing, have a longer life and can look after pets when parked and in “Dog mode.”
Beyond the direct health and lifestyle benefits of electric vehicle, decoupling our transport from expensive imported fossil fuels, enables pet owners to be sheltered from the direct and indirect costs of high fuel prices ensuring affordable high quality pet care.
To replace over two billion internal combustion engine cars with electric vehicles, reducing global warming, giving us clean air and reducing the health costs associated with the emissions from fossil fuel powered vehicles.
