California, Which Can’t Keep The Lights On, Requires All Passenger Vehicles To Be Zero Carbon By 2035

Unless some serious new technology is developed, what will happen is no vehicles will be sold in California. Besides, even plugins like Tesla’s are not zero emissions

From the article

Amid a slew of wildfires which have burned millions of acres up and down the West Coast, California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an ambitious executive order Wednesday requiring that all new passenger vehicles sold in the state be zero-emission by 2035.

The governor claims the order, which would halt the sale of new gas-powered vehicles, would decrease greenhouse gas emissions in the state by 35%.

“Pull away from the gas pumps,” Newsom said in a news conference. “Let us no longer be victims of geopolitical dictators that manipulate global supply chains and global markets.”

Furthermore, Newsom’s order also calls for all medium and heavy-duty vehicles which operate in California to be zero-emission by 2045.

So, basically, most manufacturers will pull most of their products from the state. Even standard hybrids, like the Prius, Insight, Camry, Accord, CRV, and RAV4 hybrids, among others, wouldn’t qualify.

You know what’s missing from Gavin’s EO and speech and all the news reports? And mention of him pledging to only drive in zero emission vehicles. See, this stuff is always for the peons. See, if you read the actual EO, it says “where feasible” for medium and heavy duty vehicles, meaning his bulletproof limo is excluded, as are all the vehicles of Hollywood celebs.

    A 2018 article in Forbes explained that California would need to build an additional 50% electrical power generating capacity to supply an all-EV transportation system.

    That in itself is a total pipe-dream. Unless they start building a lot of nuke plants right now.

    No word from Newsome on where all the lithium, cobalt, nickel, copper, etc., is going to come from for an additional 30 million vehicles.

    Damn. Now Californians will have to drive to Nevada to rent a U-Haul to get out of California.
