CALIFORNIA BANS GAS CARS BY 2035

Emphasizing that California must stay at the forefront of the fight against climate change, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday issued an executive order to restrict new car sales in the state to only zero-emission vehicles by 2035 and threw his support behind a ban on the controversial use of hydraulic fracturing by oil companies.

Under Newsom’s order, the California Air Resources Board would implement the phase-out of new gas-powered cars and light trucks and also require medium and heavy-duty trucks to be zero-emission by 2045 where possible.

California would be the first state in the nation to mandate 100% zero-emission vehicles, though 15 countries already have committed to phasing out gas-powered cars.

Newsom did not take executive action to ban the controversial oil extraction method known as fracking but called on the state Legislature to do so, setting up what could be a contentious political fight when lawmakers reconvene in Sacramento next year.

Taken together, the two climate change efforts would accelerate the state’s already aggressive efforts to curtail carbon emissions and petroleum hazards and promise to exacerbate tensions with a Trump administration intent on bridling California’s liberal environmental agenda.

    2. It ONLY restricts NEW CAR SALES, so used car sales would be unaffected.

      From thier paychecks to put in thrir old cars they will not be able to own anymore and wont be able to afford the electric cars.

  4. Mary Lynn, they get their gas where they get their free needles, rooms in nice hotels, etc. From the tax payers. After all, ti’s free money to Pelosi and Newsomlinni.

  5. THEY can keep their cars and live in them and still buy gas with their saved change, They and the rest of us can’t buy new gas guzzlers
