California made it official last week — the state will ban sales of
gasoline-powered new cars after 2035.
Gov. Gavin Newsom, who issued the executive order leading to the
Air Resources Board’s adoption of the ban, issued his characteristic
boast about California being out front.
“The climate crisis is solvable if we focus on the big, bold steps
necessary to stem the tide of carbon pollution,” Newsom said.
“California now has a groundbreaking, world-leading plan to achieve
100% zero-emission vehicle sales by 2035. It’s ambitious, it’s innovative,
it’s the action we must take if we’re serious about leaving this planet
better off for future generations.”
