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.

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.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, announced that the House Intelligence Committee´s interview phase of its investigation into collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign has concluded. Conaway told reporters Monday, "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians." The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russia took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again.

A porn star suing President Trump offered Monday to return $130,000 she was paid to keep mum about their alleged sexual affair so that she can talk about the relationship. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, offered to pay back the money in a letter to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, seeking to settle her lawsuit to void a nondisclosure agreement. In the letter, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said the money would be repaid by Friday and Mr. Trump had until noon Tuesday to accept the offer. “This has never been about the money,” Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told NBC News

With the current in the East River between Manhattan and Queens running south at about three knots and the downed helicopter lashed to a tugboat, rescue divers on Sunday night had only one option. They told the tugboat captain to cut the propellers and resigned themselves to drifting with the current as they tried to cut five passengers out of the helicopter, their bodies underwater and cinched with harnesses heavy enough to let them lean over and snap photographs of the New York City skyline. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. The five passengers —

The White House on Sunday vowed to help provide “rigorous firearms training” to some schoolteachers and formally endorsed a bill to tighten the federal background checks system, but backed off President Trump’s earlier call to raise the minimum age to purchase some guns to 21 years old from 18 years old. Responding directly to last month’s gun massacre at a Florida high school, the administration rolled out a series of policy proposals that focus largely on mental health and school safety initiatives. The idea of arming some teachers has been controversial and has drawn sharp opposition from the National Education Association,

Rigid sexual orientations have defined the preference of men and women for decades; however, a new study is attempting to do away with strict definitions of sexuality. The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, argues that there’s no such thing as a “straight” man or woman. Rather, people operate on a spectrum. Researchers showed men and women different kinds of pornographic material. Rather than relying on self-reporting, the study looked at physiological responses to the sexual material. Namely pupil dilation, which is a sign of sexual arousal. The study found that women’s eyes dilated when they viewed a man and

President Trump´s new pick to lead the CIA previously ran a secret prison, where human rights groups say she oversaw the torture of detainees. Trump said Deputy Director Gina Haspel would replace incumbent Mike Pompeo, who the President tapped to be his new Secretary of State on Tuesday after axing Rex Tillerson. She´ll be the first woman to head the clandestine agency if the Senate confirms her nomination. The nomination is expected to ruffle feathers, however, given her past assignments. Haspel oversaw one of the CIA´s first so-called "black sites" - or secret overseas prisons - in Thailand, where detainees

The recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an FBI employee.
