"California regulators are expected to ban the sale of all new gasoline-powered vehicles beginning in 2035, a major step for the largest auto market in the United States and one that the Democratic government hopes can accelerate the transition toward electric vehicle adoption.
The rule is expected to take effect Thursday following a vote by the California Air Resources Board, according to the New York Times. It also sets interim targets to help phase out the sale of internal combustion engine models: By 2026, it states, 35% of new cars sold must be zero-emissions vehicles — an amount that climbs to 68% in 2030. Currently, just 12% of new cars sold in the state are electric vehicles.
California is the largest auto market in the U.S., meaning its actions are likely to have an outsize impact on the auto industry. It would be the first ban on internal combustion engines within the U.S.
In announcing his support for the plan in 2020, California Gov. Gavin Newsom noted that transportation accounts for more than 50% of California’s greenhouse gas emissions.
He also noted that without taking such a step to accelerate actions to reduce transportation emissions, the state will not be able to achieve its goal of a carbon-free economy by 2045"
NEW: Charles Payne on the economy and in particular, inflation: Biden's intentional war on fossil fuels energy disaster started by Obama. Why anti environmental and bird/bat killing wind and solar can NEVER come close to replacing fossil fuels. The cost = 433 Trillion!. Government forcing anti environmental wind/solar on the market. Stifling new investments in crude and natural gas.
NEW: Life without petroleum based products: 6,000 products made with petroleum. Killing Coal. Fossil fuels and fertilizer. Biden praises high gasoline prices.
These are the main reasons causing these false narratives and junk science:
Money, politics/power, ratings, egos/cognitive bias.......NOT authentic science or energy principles.
I should get a steam engine
That wood/coal smoke isn't an ICE machine
ban the sale? i wonder how many folks will drive to vegas to buy their ICE car...or arizona, or oregon...
I read some place CA was thinking of banning any ICE machine after 2025 being driven in CA
You hear all these stories about this and that
We just have to wait and see what happens
I think it was the trucking industry that was so concerned about banning any ice machine driven in CA
No ice machines would really put a kink in the ag industry
I'm sure you must be aware that banning gasoline powered engines means bye bye to the corn grown for ethanol market.
40% of the corn crop goes to ethanol.
Bigger subsidies for ag industry
That is the socialist gov't we vote for
Free money for student loans
You really think they stop at student loans
You sell the subsidy idea that this will lower food prices, gas and inflation
Should work if you say it often enough
Yea well, Reno, Carson City, NV area w/above average high temperatures. Lake Tahoe warning sign on roadway boards display "Extreme Drought Conditions" Trees in and around Lake Tahoe are turning brown, Lake Mead near Las Vegas is about dried up. Could internal combustion autos be responsible for this ongoing climate change? so...maybe Electric Cars might help save the planet!
Natural droughts like this one being caused by the current La Nina, which is defined as cool water anomalies in the tropical Pacific have no connection to climate change.
Global drought has NOT increased the past 30 years.
Hot Summer NOT caused by climate change/the science
The planet is greening up:
Fake beer crisis/Death by GREENING!
