NO MORE GAS CARS?! One State Heading that Direction

Of all of the enemies of the climate warriors of America, perhaps none is as ubiquitous as the automobile.

You see, it’s this expansive and enormous piece of our civilization that seems to be the problem for many of the global warming worriers.  They feel as though fossil fuels are merely a means to an end, in which the seas rise after the arctic ice melts after the ozone layer fades…etc, etc.

And now, on account of their constant pressure on the far left, we have whole states considering the outlawing of the sales of gasoline-powered vehicles.

California regulators unveiled a plan to ban the sale of new gas cars by 2035 on Thursday, the state’s latest effort to combat greenhouse gas emissions.

The plan from the California Air Resources Board calls for 35% of new car sales in the state to be battery or hydrogen-powered by 2026, according to CNBC. The board will vote on the proposal in August.

The move was not approved by the California legislature.

The order, if enacted, would represent the fruition of Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s September 2020 executive order aiming to ban new gas and diesel vehicles by 2035.

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

While electric cars have largely been seen as the wave of the future, there are geopolitical issues that are exacerbated by their popularity, including the process of lithium mining, which is fueled largely by morally-murky labor practices and questionable environmental oversight.
