Breaking: California votes to APPROVE
ban on the sale of new gas cars by 2035

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 8/26/2022 6:09:00 AM

California has officially become the first in the world to enforce a ban on the sale of new gasoline cars by 2035, following a public hearing on Thursday that ended with California Air Resources Board voting to approve the policy. Automakers are now required to reduce the number of gas guzzlers they sell in order to reach the first quota of the plan that mandates 35 percent of new cars, SUVs and small pickups sold in California by 2026 be zero-emission vehicles. The quota increases every two years, with 51 percent by 2028, 68 percent by 2030 and then 100 percent of all new vehicles sold should be

Okay, so now they openly are telling Californians that they will not be able to buy new gas cars in twelve years. Twelve years out sounds like the rest of the doomsayers’ predictions about the end of the world, too, if you recall AOC’s climate hysterics. What could possibly prompt such an auto ban? They desire a run on EV’s, e.g., they want to promote the sale of EV’s instead of gas cars. To what end, though, when charging stations are few, when it takes forever to charge an EV if you’re on the road and can even find a station? It seems the cart is before the horse: If you want people to buy EVs, lower the price, invent a charger that will charge in the same time as it takes to fill a tank, and put those chargers at the same intervals as gas stations now are. THEN, ban gas cars, if you must. (Banning gas cars because of bogus environmental theories is a horrible idea to begin with, though. You don’t ban things because YOU don’t like them. That’s what happens in totalitarian countries.)

If the automakers were still patriotic and proud they would halt all sales in that state and increse dealers in bordering states. I feel for the few decent voters living in that state.

This madness can only work if Calif also limits and then bans the sale of gasoline and diesel fuels. Current owners of gasoline powered cars and trucks will keep operating them while EV sales don’t come close to mandated percentages. What’s most troubling is that Calif is still a major agricultural state. Will farmers have to buy incredibly expensive EV tractors and other EV powered farm equipment that don’t exist at the moment? If you think we have food inflation now, just wait.

The 35% mandate is just 3-1/2 years away. What happens if only 10% of car buyers are opting for EVs? Do they cut-off the supply of internal combustion engines? Some automakers don't have any EVs. Will they be forced out of business?

#33 - The same organization has already banned gasoline- and diesel-powered portable generators by 2028. Lawn mowers and leaf blowers in less than two years. When 2024 arrives there will probably be a carve-out approved that exempts all the immigrant lawncare workers, though. Forcing them to use rakes and brooms would be racist.

Well with the amount of gasoline powered motor vehicles in California, for California to be successful with their electric vehicle scheme they are going to have the motor vehicle manufacturers to either produce self-charging motor vehicles where the electric vehicle recharges its battery while on the go, or have electric vehicles produced with portable batteries that can easily and quickly be removed from the vehicle and exchanged for a charged up battery at a battery exchange station anytime a battery runs down, just as gas powered motor vehicles are refueled at gas pumps today. The problem is who is going to build all those battery exchange stations, and how much would it cost to operate such an exchange station, and of course how much would it cost consumers to exchange a battery?

So will California eventually ban the use of vehicles with internal combustion engines within the state? What about farm machinery, trains, aircraft? How about the power plants that rely on petroleum fuels? Solar and wind are inadequate to meet California's power demands and present their own environmental issues. The new green deal is a fairy tale, completely unworkable, it's like putting Wile E Coyote in charge America's energy concerns. America needs to look at large nuclear facilities that each produce enough electricity to power a dozen or more states. They need to be located in sparsely populated areas with low seismic activity and stable consistent weather patterns. All of this green talk sounds nice but falls short on reality. Nuclear while presenting considerable hazards is the only source that can deliver on America's energy needs especially now with the development of EVs. EVs seem here to stay but will further stress our electricity supply. If California wants to lead on this issue they're going to have to solve some rather large problems instead of spouting inane "Green" mumbo jumbo.

Everyone here makes the correct arguments that there is no such thing an a zero emission car, and the problems with recharging, etc...... BUT everyone knows those things by now, including the tyrants who have a genetic need to control everyone else. This isn't a scientific argument; it's a political one. Controlling our travel falls under one of the 3 dominant forms of control: food, health and energy. All very much under control of the federal government now. And you will like it.

What the Left are doing with their monopoly on governmental power in CA is unmistakably authoritarian, not to mention completely moronic and dishonest. That notwithstanding, DM's sloppy use of English gives a little glimpse of a key part of today's mess in the U.S. " first in the world to enforce a ban on the sale of new gasoline cars" We're just skipping over all the details that provide coherence to our decisions and continuity to our management (and protect our freedoms: A rule can't be enforced until it's the law. And it isn't a law until it's enacted. And it isn't enacted until the Governor signs it. And he can't sign it until it's passed by the legislature..... California isn't enforcing this ban, they PASSED the ban and forwarded it to Governor Gruesome's desk for his signature. DUE PROCESS can safeguard our rights only if it is kept intact, and both government and media are defeating the whole thing by skipping over things that are tedious or inconvenient.

Stop the presses: Somebody who worked for Donald Trump has written an upbeat, informative book. It’s a moral outrage and must be destroyed! So says The New York Times about Jared Kushner’s White House memoir. Reviewer Dwight Garner, sounding like a high-school mean girl, not only trashes “Breaking History” as “soulless,” he mocks the author’s appearance, saying “Kushner looks like a mannequin, and he writes like one.” Twice he refers to Kushner’s dimples.

When it comes to gauging the country’s economic health, the media usually focuses on indicators like gross domestic product (GDP). But those broad metrics don’t always capture people’s ability to meet their basic needs — food, clothing and shelter. Even though GDP has been declining for the last six months, the real alarm bell that should be ringing concerns the electorate’s inability to afford a place to live, something the discontented voter will not take lightly. Since Joe Biden became president, prices have risen dramatically for clothing (7.3%) and food (13.7%), according to the Consumer Price Index. But those increases pale in comparison to how much home prices and rents

After nearly two years of talking about it, Joe Biden finally rolled out his student-loan forgiveness plan … and apparently nothing else. According to Axios, the White House didn’t bother to gather the data on eligibility, didn’t create a system which would check it, and has no system yet in place to fully complete the process. Did Biden drop the ball again — or did he never expect to be allowed to run with it in the first place? The agency doesn’t have income data for most of the 43 million Americans eligible for forgiveness, meaning around 35 million people — including Pell Grant recipients — will have to attest

Ford is reportedly raising the price of the 2023 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle by as much as $8,000 just a few weeks after increasing the price of its planned electric pickup truck the F-150 Lightning.

The Verge reports that Ford is raising the price of the 2023 Mustang Mach-E just a few weeks after increasing the price of its electric pickup truck, the F-150 Lightning.

After President Biden announced his student loan handout plan on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, many parents immediately wondered about the status of the college loans they took out in their own names on behalf of their children. Many moms and dads took out Parent PLUS loans, the federal loans available to parents of undergraduate students to handle college expenses not covered by financial aid.

Friday’s unsealing of the affidavit tied to the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate has raised more questions than answers. West Palm Beach US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhardt had ordered the Justice Department earlier in the week to prepare a redacted version of the document in which authorities laid out their reasons for the controversial Aug. 8 search-and-seizure operation at Mar-a-Lago. Friday’s unsealing came amid what Reinhardt called “intense public and historical interest” into the raid. The feds have described their probe as centering on the alleged mishandling of classified information, theft of government records and obstruction of justice.

Herbie Ziskend, a senior communications adviser, announced that he is leaving Harris’s side for the West Wing, where he will be the new White House deputy communications director.

A bizarre assertion made by scientists in South Korea suggests that if the global population starts eating burgers and other food made out of earthworms, then world hunger would be greatly reduced. The New York Post reports that Dr. Hee Cho of Wonkwang University led a research project which concluded that mixing cooked mealworms, or beetle larvae, with sugar can produce a substance that resembles and allegedly tastes like meat. “Recently, eating insects has become of interest because of the increasing cost of animal protein, as well as the associated environmental issues,” Cho said in a press release after the project’s conclusion. “Insects are a nutritious and healthy food source
