At the last Austrian National election in 2017, the Greens ran on a 100% renewable, no fossil fuels platform. Not entirely unexpected I would say. What was a bit weird though was that they used a diesel tour bus in order to get their stuff from place to place on their Austria tour. Ohh, you thought that was fishy. Let me one up this for you. They said that an electric bus did not provide the comfort and capabilities they required on the tour. In other words, they said – those E-Vehicles suck and we will use whatever provides us with the comfort we need but we fully expect you, voters, to buy expensive, sucky vehicles that we won’t use as they SUCK. Good thing they got the boot.
The environmental activists say it feels 'hypocritical' but it would have used more energy to transport a solar generator from London
