You already know that California is a failing state, and more people are leaving the state than moving to it for the first time in decades. Now you’re starting to understand why.
The California Governor Gavin Newsom has now signed an executive order that will ban the sale of gas powered and diesel cars and trucks by the year 2035. Let’s not even get into the fact that the average electric powered car is around $100,000 which the average Joe can’t even remotely afford.
Newsom on Wednesday issued an executive order that would phase out sales of new gas-powered passenger cars by 2035, a move that he said would improve air quality and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are warming the planet.
He signed the order two weeks after he pledged to fast-track California’s environmental goals in response to what he called a “climate damn emergency” — the wildfires that have burned a record-breaking 3.6 millon acres this year.
“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” Newsom said. “For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. You deserve to have a car that doesn’t give your kids asthma. Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse – and create more days filled with smoky air. Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines.”
His order directs the California Air Resources Board to develop regulations mandating that all new passenger cars sold in the state by 2035 will be zero emission vehicles, meaning they will not require gas to drive.
The order also requires state agencies to partner with private sector industries to deploy affordable fueling and charging options for zero-emission cars.
If you thought people were leaving California before, just wait. Now let’s see what happens when companies refuse to change their trucking fleets over to meet his ridiculous and BS requirements (which they can’t legally make on intrastate travel anyway, but that’s a whole other topic).
No one is this moronic state has even thought about the ramifications of the transportation industry that brings goods in and out of the massive state. They won’t comply, and it will cripple the state. Good luck with that California, keep voting blue!
