Climate Cult Report Calls For Getting Rid Of Fossil Fueled Vehicles And Home Heating Oil

The Cult of Climastrology tells us what restrictions and such they want to put on Other People: you just have to listen to what they say, yet, too many fall for the scam. This comes from the New Jersey Department Of Environmental Protection, which doesn’t seem to have given up its own use of fossil fueled vehicles

No gas-powered cars, no heating oil for homes. Climate report calls for major action

New Jersey has met a short-term goal of trimming carbon emissions but must make radical changes to transportation, electric generation, construction and industry if it is to achieve a much bigger reduction by the middle of the century, the Department of Environmental Protection said Thursday.

In a report on progress toward a legal requirement of cutting emissions by 80% from 2006 levels by 2050, the DEP called for “steep and permanent” reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions within the “next several years.”

Unless the state puts itself on a path to rapidly phase out fossil fuels and adopt renewables on a wide scale, its people will see the increasing effects of climate change including sea-level rise, increases in temperature and precipitation, chronic flooding, bigger storms and longer droughts, the “80×50” report said.

See, they have to attempt to scare people to get them to Comply with paying more taxes and fees, dealing with their cost of living skyrocketing, and giving up freedom, liberty, and choice.

Achieving transportation’s share of the shift would require a massive change in how new cars, SUVs and light-duty trucks are powered, the report said. It calculated that 88% of those vehicles would have to be driven by electricity or hydrogen by 2030, rising to 100% by 2035. For electric vehicles, that would mean expanding their number by 111,000 a year until 2035 from the current rate of only 8,000 a year, the report said.

Anyone ever been in NJ traffic? Good luck not running out while sitting in it (just like in California which is looking to do the same). Of course, you can bet it will be mandated that people take the bus or train to work rather than their own vehicle, plus, people won’t be able to really afford those pure electric vehicles, especially since power will be scarce and expensive.

And it said the experience of millions of people working from home rather than commuting to offices during the COVID-19 pandemic “provides an opportunity to realize significant short-term emissions reductions in the transportation sector.”

Looks like they want people pretty much staying home all the time.

Residential and commercial sectors account for the second-largest share of emissions, 26%, and the report said they must fall by 89% by 2050 to meet the overall target. That could be achieved in part by phasing out the use of heating oil and propane, which together account for about 10% of New Jersey residences. Legislation or directives from the Board of Public Utilities could be used to achieve a conversion of new building stock, starting at 22% by 2030, rising to 90% by 2050.

Say goodbye to your gas stove and heating, along with your propane grill, among others. Solar can provide adequate heat on a cold winter night, right? Right?

The New Jersey Business & Industry Association called the report a “first step” toward setting needed policy on reducing emissions, but said the absence of cost estimates limited its usefulness.

“It’s perfectly OK to do the analysis and say, ‘here’s where we think we need to go,’” said Ray Cantor, the BIA’s vice president of government affairs. “But DEP said there is really no analysis as to what this is going to cost, there is no analysis as to whether our energy system would actually be reliable as a result. It’s a starting point for the detailed conversations but it’s absolutely not how we should move forward.”

Cost? Pfft. There’s no need to worry about cost when you are Saving The World. When NJ gives this a whirl, and it is a when, not an if, the NJ Business and Industry Association will surely be among the first to bitch about their cost increases. NJ should try this. Like I’ve said, we need experimental groups to show us what happens.

    If we were only a little bit smarter, we could figure out a way to “save” the heat from summer and use it during the Winter. And save the “cold” from winter to use in the summer.

    You cannot go far enough left for the lefties. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s plan calls for all new personal vehicles sold to be zero-emissions by 2035. The other Democrats who ran picked 2030, but it was still: all new vehicles sold.

    But most Americans drive used cars, because that’s what they can afford. Yet the statement quoted above would require that 88% of all personal vehicles on the road be zero-emission by 2030, and 100% of them, all of them, by 2035.

    Personal choice? You don’t get that, do you? The warmunists want to increase the number of electric vehicles sold to rise for 8,000 to 111,000 per year, but if the public wanted plug-in electric vehicles, there’d be a whole lot more than 8,000 of them sold per year in very blue state New Jersey.

    A real eye opener about polling in this election.

    TL Didn’t watch. Well you miss some amazing information such as Biden is on pace to blow Obama out of the water in voter enthusiasm.

    Biden is on pace to blow FDR out of the water in the 1944 election after basically winning world war 2 in which he landslided to victory.

    Biden is winning PA by 15 points when new GOP registrations outstripped new democratic ones 3-1. Etc. Etc.

    Watch this video you will be reassured that the communist MSM is indeed in the tank for the communist left and are no longer even remotely interested in the truth.

    My younger daughter, an IT professional, worked from home from March through June, and she admitted that she simply was not as productive working from home. The critters, the working part of the time on the screened-in porch where she could enjoy the weather, the conversing with parental units, all of the distractions of outside the office contributed to reducing productivity. And she was the only employee not laid off during the time, which means that her company thought she was the best.

    My home in the Keystone State used heating oil; there was no natural gas service to our house. On the farm today, we added propane, after a miserable all-electric winter in which the power was out for five straight days, because there is no natural gas service this far out in the country.

    People don’t use propane unless natural gas is unavailable; propane requires by-truck delivery rather than the constant flow of piped-in natural gas, and that’s an additional expense and something which needs to be monitored. (Which reminds me: I need to check our tank today.)

    So, from where will the Garden State get its sparktricity? The left thinks that we’ll get it all from the sun, which might someday be feasible if solar energy collection efficiency ever improves, but New Jersey is a northern state, and the higher the latitude, the less sunlight is available during the winter, when it would be needed the most. Perhaps the left can blame Donald Trump for the problems associated with the earth’s axial tilt?
