We’re Saved: Massachusetts To Mandate All Vehicle Sales To Be EVs By 2035

If this is so important, why not, say, 2022? If there are so many climate cultists in Mass., why are they not buying EVs in huge numbers right now?

Mass. to require all new cars sold to be electric by 2035 as part of climate-change measures

Governor Charlie Baker’s administration on Wednesday released a plan that will require the state to dramatically cut greenhouse-gas emissions in the next decade and beyond through a raft of changes, including by mandating that all new cars sold in the state be electric by 2035.

Among the changes the state plans over the next decade: retrofitting 1 million homes to use electricity for heating instead of gas and oil, cutting commuters’ driving miles by 15 percent, and dramatically increasing offshore wind power generation.

Where’s the electricity coming from to replace the gas and oil? Will they forcibly retrofit homes above the wishes of the home owners? How, exactly, will they make commuters reduce their miles? And, it will be interesting when politicians and rich folks jam up the works so that their views aren’t blighted.

The state’s new legally binding commitment to reduce the state’s carbon emissions to 45 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 is among the most ambitious of such pledges by governments in the United States and the rest of the world. Achieving that milestone would put the state on track to reach “net zero” fossil-fuel emissions by 2050, a goal announced this year by Baker’s administration.

It’s nice and all, but, most pledges to Do Something about Hotcoldwetdry have failed. Few keep their personal ones, few governments keep theirs. Let’s start with forcing the Gov’s office to become net zero right now.

The state strove to balance its ambitious goals with the need to maintain a thriving economy and prevent residents’ living costs from ballooning, Theoharides said. The changes will benefit Massachusetts residents by improving air quality — leading to savings in health costs up to $100 million per year by 2030 — and through the creation of thousands of high-quality local jobs, officials said.

Crazy pipe dreams of climate cultists who won’t change their own lives but want to force Other People to change theirs.

Massachusetts currently has about 30,000 electric vehicles on the roads, a number which may include hybrid vehicles, officials said. They set the goal of increasing that number to 750,000 by 2035, when all new “light-duty” vehicles, or passenger cars, sold will be mandated to be zero-emissions, meaning either electric or hydrogen fuel-cell cars, which also run on electricity.

Not “may include”, it does include. And the majority of those 30k will be standard hybrids, gas engines with electric battery assist. And a smattering of plugin hybrids. And then a few rich folks with Teslas. If this is so darned important, why is the Gov not switching to one now, along with all the people in his office?

And, why can’t these people just mind their own damned business?

    That makes it indistinguishable from what Joe Biden has planned, so NBD, but, if a Republican President is elected in 2024, he can always cancel the Biden plans. That would mean that Bay Staters could simply buy their new vehicles in New Hampshire — which just elected Republican majorities in both houses of the state legislature — or somewhere else.

    • The Left Are Traitors says:

      Knowing how leftists work so hard to deprive us of our rights you should be aware all the commies in The Bay State need do is “reset” the law that no vehicles not electric can be registered there. Poof! Rights denied, lefties happy, electric de facto mandated.

      That will be the MO of our new One Party State Overseers. Get used to it.

    And it won’t change the weather at all.

    Teach typed: Crazy pipe dreams of climate cultists who won’t change their own lives but want to force Other People to change theirs.

    Aside from his Crazy pattern of Capitalization, he makes the false claim that climate realists are forcing oTher peoPle to Change their livEs.

    Teach forgets that no one is above the law (except for tRump, his FamilY and men who covered For Him). Enacted laws apply to all (exceptions list above).

    It’s interesting that the Same Tribe bellowing that trUmp won The Election, also bellow that global warming is a Commie Scam and that the Covid Pandemic is a Hoax. All linked to China!!

    • pResident Thief and "DR" Xiden says:

      It’s also interesting that the same tribe refusing to admit Xiden stole the election, bellow there is “man made global warming” which is a leftist scam but don’t believe unborn human babies are human and deserve life. If the phony scamdemic from Red Communist China is not a hoax then why does the CDC have to cook the books on deaths?

      You have a bad habit of telling other people what they believe instead of listening to what they actually say.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        There is no credible evidence that President-elect Biden stole the election.

        There is overwhelming evidence that CO2 is causing the Earth to warm.

        There is no credible evidence that the CDC (or any other agency, US or global) is “cooking” the books.

        See the differences in the positions?

        Unlike you, I would accept evidence refuting CO2 global warming. I would accept PROOF that President-elect Biden stole the election. I would accept evidence showing that Covid-19 is a hoax.

        Human zygotes/embryos have the potential to become human babies. Unfortunately, a large percentage of embryos are lost without implanting in the uterine lining and are lost in menstruation.

          Yes – you have all three backwards. Can you see my “shocked!” face?

      hillary clinton is not in jail, comey is not in jail, brennon is not in jail, clapper is not in jail, biden is not in jail, obomo is not in jail, susan rice is not in jail, etc,etc,etc. there are a lot of people who are above the law.

    Yes-no one is above the law and no one but state legislatures are allowed to change election laws, as specifically laid out in the Constitution. https://www.theblaze.com/op-ed/levin-on-january-6-we-learn-whether-our-constitution-will-hold

    Tsk tsk, Teach. You KNOW the most important thing for a politician is to appear to be doing something while doing absolutely nothing. Set an unattainable goal with the timeline far enough in the future that you will be retired and living on your gubmint pension by then, et voila! You can do nothing, not get blamed for any bad things that happen, and get to pander to your base so they think you are cool and give you money. What’s wrong with that?

    Also, I see it being described as a “plan”. Does it have the force of law, or must the legislature acquire funds to actually meet it? Seems like it is even more hot air.
