California is set to move closer to banning the sale of new cars running only on gasoline by 2035, a major step in the car-loving state’s fight against climate change. The expected embrace of the policy by the state’s Air Resources Board during a meeting scheduled for Thursday comes after Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) set a target in 2020 for cleaning up California’s auto fleet. The proposed regulation would set strict deadlines for meeting that goal, forcing automakers to step up production of cleaner vehicles considerably, starting in 2026. The requirements would only speed forward from there, until only zero-emission


You WILL buy an electric vehicle - at gunpoint if necessary.

It's not about buying an electric car. They don't intend to have the grid needed to charge all the replacement cars. It is about not having any car at all. Not having the freedom of personal mobility.

I won't buy their BS cars. Thinking hard about purchasing a good used engine and transmission for my current Honda Accord and preserving it for possible future use. And Kansas is FAR away and far removed from the insanity of Commifornia.

The exodus will continue. The only vehicles left in CA will the millions of bicycles used by the illegals. LA will look like Calcutta with those swarms of bikes. Then the only ones left in the state along with the illegals will be the super wealthy in their guarded compounds driving $100,000 EVs.

Hmm...funny. That is also what the Bank of Australia is requiring by 2035 as well by when cars loans will be approved for only e-cars. How is that going down, Aussies? How do we stop this e-crowd non-sense before it spreads to Amerika. Most of us prefer to travel when we want, how we want, and where we want. Got it, greenies? The solution to all this? Fossil-fueled, electric-powered, and hydrogen-powered cars - all at the same time. And greenies, planet earth, your monolith, is happy. Let that sink in for a minute, greenies.

They can only consider doing this because it is a one party state. And they think that no matter what they do, it will never become a two party state. People are often wrong about a great many things...

That's one way to depopulate the state. The only people who can afford electric cars are people who have them as second or third cars. The working poor can't. What will the Pelosis and their friends do when they can't get pool boys, maids, nannies, or people to pick their grapes in Napa?

The amount of raw minerals needed for the batteries, disposal of batteries, the child labour to mine these minerals, the lack of safety and controls over these mining operations, the amount of electricity that will be consumed on top of what it is already being used for, and driving in natural disasters and recharging your car when the electrical grid is down vs having a couple of cans of gas. Yea, it all makes sense.

I hope California finds a way to double its output of electricity by then or there are going to be many people living in the dark and sweating when the temperature rises. Don't underestimate the power of duct tape.

What #13 predicts is daydream stuff for stoners, not realism. The land west of the San Andreas isn't falling into the ocean (even if some sea cliffs periodically slide from beach erosion). The Pacific Plate, carrying the California coast south of San Francisco, is sliding north-northwestward, such that the land on which L.A. sits will eventually sit directly between S.F. and the ocean. Harebrained Liberal "progress" will destroy California long before the geology does, though.

Next will be non renewal of vehicle registrations for gas powered vehicles or a special insurance surcharge for them. Also look for a new higher gas/diesel tax to help "encourage" the use of electric cars. Wait until the first mass evacuation traffic jams where the electric cars run out of charge and people are stuck in the quickly approaching wildfires.

Five more buses arrived in New York City from Texas on Wednesday, the most buses in one day to reach the Big Apple. The new buses are only the latest to make the trip — Texas Gov.

DENVER — The use of marijuana by young adults in this country is now at an all-time high. A new survey also says the same group is using hallucinogens like never before. The study was conducted by the National Institutes of Health. It surveyed young adults between the ages of 19 and 30. Overall, 43% of those surveyed said they used pot over the past year. That’s up from 34% in 2016 and up from 29% ten years ago. In 2021, 8% of the people surveyed said they used hallucinogens over the past year. That’s up from 5% in 2016

Two Orthodox Jewish men were sprayed with a fire extinguisher and one was also punched in what the police department is investigating as a hate crime pattern. The first attack happened shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday on Lee Ave. and Taylor St. just south of the Williamsburg Bridge approach. One man can be seen on surveillance video creeping across the street toward his 74-year-old victim with a fire extinguisher in his hand. The suspect, who was wearing a white T-shirt and black pants, sprayed the man, spreading a cloud of white powder onto the sidewalk and street, the video shows.

California is set to roll out its long-awaited ban on new gasoline cars on Thursday, which is part of its rule to have all new cars sold by 2035 to be electric only in an effort to fight climate change. Governor Gavin Newsom first announced the ban in 2020 as a means to reduce the amount of smog-induced pollution in the air, which will improve the state's air quality that is the worst in the US. The move will also make California the first in the world to mandate zero-emission vehicles on its roads -

Meanwhile, roughly one-third of voters (34%) had negative feelings, making Manchin the most unpopular figure in the poll with a net negative rating of 23%.
