California Bill Seeks Ban on
Fossil-Fueled Vehicles by 2040

Bloomberg News, by Ryan Beene

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2018 8:28:53 PM

California would ban the sale of new cars and trucks powered by fossil fuels in 2040 under legislation introduced Wednesday in the state legislature. "We’re at an inflection point: we’ve got to address the harmful emissions that cause climate change," Democratic Assemblymember Phil Ting, the bill’s author, said in a statement. If the measure becomes law, by January 1, 2040, all new passenger vehicles sold in California would have to be so-called zero emission vehicles such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell cars. More cars are sold each year in California than in any other state -- and more than in some countries.

Comments:
I´d be over 100 when this may happen. Probably won´t be driving them... Idiots. What about air travel and their Billion dollar bullet train? Maybe they'll be flying so high from smoking weed that they won't be going to work.

I don´t think that anyone in California is smart enough to realize that Tesla electric cars are coal-fueled cars...

I think this is a fantastic idea. Along with the elimination of high state tax deductions, this could propel California right into the 13th Century. California, in the next couple of years, will start to realize that thier tax base (on the highest income earners) will not allow them to be the socialist/fascist paradise they currently envision. Every loony idea these ding-a-lings dream up will have hyper repercussions going forward. And as usual, they are too stupid to see it coming.

I don´t know...

By 2050, if this keeps up, Californians will be little more than Neandertals, ´grunting about´ eating one another because they certainly won´t have the wherewithal to grow food, and I certainly won´t have the patience or the good will to give them handouts - don´t feed the animals don´t you know. You shouldn´t interfere with natural processes.

I just hope the good people who are caught up in this mess can bail out before they´re caught in what´s coming. They certainly won´t need to worry about illegals - there won´t be anything there for the illegals to envy or covet. Just the ruins of another broken society.

And as they run out of money, the entitled few in their gated communities will sit back and watch the red horizon as the blazes their actions engender sweep across them all with no one left with the will or character to fight them.

Sodom and Gomorrah´s fate was swift. This will be similar but drawn out by inches like a victim on a rack with the hot irons handy and smoking...

An amendment to that law would also make it mandatory to dispose of the depleted batteries from these cars when they die! The federal government needs to rule that there is no deduction on federal tax forms for electric/ alternative vehicles. The rest of America shouldn´t have to subsidize them! Of course, we need to stop subsidizing Tesla!

Electricity comes from coal. Hydrogen comes from burning oil and gas. These cars cost about $100,000 and up. There are no stations that sell hydrogen even if it could be produced in environmentally friendly ways. I´m all for science, but passing a law before the science and commerce has developed to the point to make it possible for citizens to comply with the law is just typical act first, think never, leftist political action.

There are no such things as fossil fuels. They all come naturally from deep within the earth, and oil replenishes itself over time. Screw these Libtards and the horses they rode in on.

The killer to this deal is the number of charging stations that would have to be built. Plus the infrastructure and power needs to charge these cars would turn corner convenience stores into the size of large big box stores.

Re #1, I don’t believe there is anyone smart enough to know what all Californians know or don’t know.

The green-eyed (except for our politics) get all snarled up trying to wrap their minds around there being over 5+ million Republicans in California (how many in your state(s)?) and decide it’s easier to tar all Californians with the Democrat brush.

Trying to divide the country on every thread is a pretty stupid idea, IMO.

This is so bogus! The only vehicles that do not run DIRECTLY on fossil-fuels are electric battery powered. They get the electricity to charge the batteries from coal, natural gas or nuclear power plants. And, the batteries have to be replaced periodically.

Total negative environmental impact of electric powered vehicles is greater than gasoline powered vehicles.

They should include some additional amendments to the bill: All electricity produced for the electric vehicles must come from wind or solar generation. No recharging station can be built by heavy machinery that burns gas or diesel. All electric/hybrid vehicles must be transported from factory to dealership by electric semis. All factories manufacturing electric vehicles can only be powered by wind- or solar-produced energy.

Illegal charged with cop-killing:
‘Wish I had killed more’

An illegal immigrant facing murder charges for the killing of two law enforcement officers in Northern California went off the rails during his most recent court hearing and said, with a grin on his face, “I wish I had killed more,” Fox News reported. This is what the sanctuary-loving left wants to shelter from the deportation storm? Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes, 37, is a Mexican citizen who stands accused of killing two officers, Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr., in 2014 — at a time when he was in America illegally. His past court appearances have been marked by strange

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman can’t seem to rid himself of the “bad boy” image. Rodman was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Saturday in Newport Beach, California, after police say he was “driving like a maniac and blaring music,” TMZ reports. The bigger problem for the former Chicago Bulls star, though, is that he is on probation for a July of 2016 hit-and-run incident in which he was driving the wrong way. This latest arrest could revoke Rodman’s three-year probation and force him to serve prison time, TMZ reports. Rodman was reportedly cooperative with police.

The Senate won’t vote on an immigration deal unless it has President Trump’s support, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday, effectively dooming the Gang of Six bill even before a bipartisan group of lawmakers officially introduced it. Mr. McConnell said they are waiting to see exactly what Mr. Trump will sign, but the president has said the bill written by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin was rejected by the White House last week, so it’s not the basis for negotiations. “I’m looking for something that President Trump supports and he has not indicated what measure he is willing to sign,” Mr. McConnell told

The Bible tells Christians to beware, that to follow Jesus paves the way for a life of challenge, mocking and persecution — that specifically, as Matthew 10:22 states, “you will be hated by all for [His] name’s sake.” (Snip) Fully 215 million Christians are right now facing “high levels of persecution” in 60 different countries, with “Islamic oppression” the driving factor in eight of the top ten, the nonprofit found, in its latest World Watch List 2018.

Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned. The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published Wednesday on its website. Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a

The “Gang of Six” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program should be rolled “straight into the trash can,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says. On Wednesday, a group of six pro-amnesty Senators will roll out their expansive immigration amnesty plan that would not only give a pathway to U.S. citizenship beginning with 3.5 million DACA and DACA-eligible illegal aliens but also give amnesty to the parents of amnesty beneficiaries.

Tokyo - Japanese public broadcaster NHK says its erroneous alert of a North Korean missile fired at Japan was sent by a staff member who meant to file a different news flash. NHK denied any mechanical flaw and said Wednesday it is studying preventive measures. The erroneous news flash Tuesday said North Korea appeared to have fired a missile at Japan and that the government was warning people to take shelter. NHK retracted the mistake within minutes and apologized on air and on other formats. NHK isn't sure how many of its 300,000 social media followers saw the alert or notification and it's unknown if anyone followed the

Participants in a 20-nation summit on the North Korean nuclear threat have called for continued sanctions on the country, in an effort to pressure the regime to give up its rapidly advancing nuclear programme. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who participated in the one-day meeting in Vancouver, Canada, said the event sent a simple message: "We will not accept a nuclear-armed North Korea." The sentiment was echoed by Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, who urged the international community not to ease up on North Korea despite its recent cooperation with the South.

Between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016, 549 people were convicted of international terror offenses in United States federal court. Of those convicted terrorists, 254 were foreign-born non-citizens accounting for 73% of the convictions, according to a senior administration official who provided the data for reporters during a background briefing Tuesday. The high percentage of foreign-born non-citizens convicted of terror activities in the United States “highlights the importance of reforming the immigration system,” the administration official said, including the “importance of ending the practices of chain

Washington - The Trump administration said Tuesday that it will rush to the U.S. Supreme Court within a few days by skipping over a federal appeals court, hoping for quick action in the legal battle over shutting down the DACA program. "It´s an extremely unusual request, one that is granted once in a blue moon," said Tom Goldstein, publisher of the SCOTUSBlog website. "It´s a signal by the Trump administration that they take this issue incredibly seriously and think the justices should, too." A federal judge ruled Jan. 9 that the government could not end the program on March 6, as President Donald Trump proposed to do.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
