Plan would ban gasoline powered cars in California

California Gov. Jerry Brown has expressed interest in banning cars that burn fossil fuels, the state’s top climate change regulator said in an interview published Tuesday.

“I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’” Mary Nichols, chair of the California Air Resources Board, said in an interview with Bloomberg News.

California has, for years, pushed automakers to offer cars that produce no emissions, turning the state into the nation’s largest market for electric cars. It has not, however, proposed an outright ban on cars running on the internal combustion engine.

France and Britain will bar sales of new gasoline and diesel vehicles by 2040. Norway is aiming for 2025, even though the country remains a major oil producer. India has targeted 2030. Chinese officials are working on a ban but have not announced a timetable.

  1. Either Jerry and these other countries know something we don;t know , or they are planning to issue bikes and scooters to travel. The Car cannot be banned or eliminated until there is a reliable alternative.. To ban them by Fiat is asinine a d totally irresponaible.. Wanna bet Jerry and his VIP Legislators will have access to gas cars to carry out their important business of the people, while the people have to walk, ride bikes or use dangerous public transportation.. More Libtard Utopian nightmare disasters ahead for Kaly.. Get OUT while you can.
