"California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that the state will ban sales of gas-powered vehicles, effective in 2035. Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045.
Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market."
This should work out really well.
Some serious resource issues. Good thing mining is so environmentally friendlyHow did they get the idea that electricity is renewable energy? US spinning reserve is gas fired. Solar and wind are a drop in the bucket, and the idiots want to bust the dams, eliminating hydroelectric. Nuclear, the most efficient source, has been totally demonized despite the success of the French and Canadian systems.
I think other states should triple or quadruple their hydro rates to California and see how the NIMBY’s make out on their own.
Sorry, rant over...
