Trains already 100% Wind Powered in Holland

untitleddutchtrainsInitially, trains in the Netherlands were set to run entirely on renewable energy by 2018. However, it seems officials have been able to beat that goal by an entire year. As of the first of January this year, all public transport trains are being powered by renewable energy, namely from wind power.

Meanwhile, in Australia, all our regional trains are dirty diesel. And as Transport Sector now challenges electricity for biggest source of emissions, we may, eventually, get updated regulated limit for car emissions but trucks are average age 13 years(compared with 6.7 years for USA), many from before any emission standard. Down under junk yard?
