California lawmaker wants to ban gas car sales after 2040

France and the United Kingdom are doing it. So is India. And now one lawmaker would like California to follow their lead in phasing out gasoline- and diesel-fueled vehicles.

When the Legislature returns in January, Assemblyman Phil Ting plans to introduce a bill that would ban the sale of new cars powered by internal-combustion engines after 2040. The San Francisco Democrat said it’s essential to get California drivers into an electric fleet if the state is going to meet its greenhouse gas reduction targets, since the transportation sector accounts for more than a third of all emissions.

“The market is moving this way. The entire world is moving this way,” Ting said. “At some point you need to set a goal and put a line in the sand.”

California already committed five years ago to putting 1.5 million “zero-emission vehicles,” such as electric cars and plug-in hybrids, on the road by 2025. By that time, the state wants these cleaner models to account for 15 percent of all new car sales.

But progress has been modest so far, as consumers wait for prices to drop and battery ranges to improve, or opt for large trucks and SUVs that are not available among electric offerings. Slightly more than 300,000 zero-emission vehicles have now been sold in California, and they accounted for just under 5 percent of new car sales in the state in the first half of the year.

Ting is among the policymakers pushing to increase incentives for drivers to ditch their gas guzzlers. He is also working on legislation that would overhaul California’s electric car rebate program by making more money available for rebates, then ratcheting down the value of those discounts as the state hits sales targets.

“California is used to being first. But we’re trying to catch up to this,” Ting said.

France and the United Kingdom both announced this summer that they would ban the sale of new gas and diesel cars after 2040. India is aiming to get there by 2030. And China said this month that it would stop the production and sale of vehicles powered solely by fossil fuels in the coming years.

Mary Nichols, chair of the California Air Resources Board, caused a stir earlier this week when she told Bloomberg News that California might consider doing the same.

“I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’ The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California,” she said.

Her remarks were met with skepticism from automakers and industry analysts, and outrage from many drivers. But Ting said the state must be aggressive in establishing a vision for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“If you had told me five years ago that we might have autonomous vehicles on the road soon, I would have laughed,” he said. “The technology is moving so quickly, I don’t know if by 2040 we’ll be owning our own cars.”

My Conclusion: They banning car in the name of reducing carbon emission and climate change is use as an excuse to pass laws to further the globalist agenda. This has nothing to with saving the earth.

Is drought in California Finally coming to an end?

On 12 January 2017 California got some heavy rain from that storm and snow in the ski resorts in California, Nevada but 12 feet (3.658 meters) of snow which would be enough to cause the ski resort to close due to too much snow.

CalExit: Californians Call for Secession After Trump Victory

Hillary supporters are hoping California will secede from the Union and become its own country since Donald Trump will become our next president. Media analyst Mark Dice has the story. © 2016 by Mark Dice

Matthew Concludes: Oh well I’m felt sorry for the Hillary Supporters oh well that too bad that Donald Trump won the election. Thing is I’m proud of Trump’s victory not because I’m willing to supporter the winning team because I did my research on both Clinton and Trump so I know what Trump stands for also know what Clinton stand for. People in California don’t call themselves American but call themselves Californian because they can’t stand have a culture becoming healthy because they love the culture of illusion and falsehood. That why they call for a Calexit because they can’t stand integrity and dignity so they want to have country to base they illusion and falsehood which Hollywood is based. Hollywood is all about status and showing off; it also a very cliquish, exclusives and secretive society to be in. Hollywood is a place of materialism, hedonism, narcissism and dissatisfaction and it’s place of that is not based on morals. For me I like to live a culture based on integrity and dignity not a culture base on materialism, illusion and lacks integrity.

Nestle continues pumping California dry to sell public water for outrageous profits

(NaturalNews) Drought-shaming in California – the calling out, usually via social media, of neighbors and others who break water-use rules – has become quite prevalent as the state continues to suffer through a historic drought. But not everyone is getting shamed equally.

As reported by TheAntiMedia.com, one company that is getting less than its fair share of shame is Nestle, which, though the giant company has drawn some of the public’s ire, has not received nearly enough “to have spontaneously sprouted a conscience.” Continue reading Nestle continues pumping California dry to sell public water for outrageous profits

California to throw adults in JAIL if they refuse government-mandated vaccines

(NaturalNews) In case you haven’t noticed, there’s an incremental push right now by the controlling elite to force vaccinations on all Americans, both young and old. And this agenda is gaining considerable traction in California, where legislators are now moving forward with plans to force childhood vaccines on all adults who work in daycare centers, both private and public.

Senate Bill 792, also known as the “Day care facilities: immunizations: exemptions” act, was presented quietly alongside SB 277, which eliminates personal, philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions for children who attend both private and public schools in the Golden State. The bill, as recently heard by the California Assembly Human Services Committee, reads as follows:

This bill, commencing September 1, 2016, would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized against influenza, pertussis, and measles. Continue reading California to throw adults in JAIL if they refuse government-mandated vaccines

Governor Jerry Brown mandates a mass medical vaccine experiment on blacks by signing SB 277 into law… total violation of medical ethics… brings back Tuskegee era medical crimes

(NaturalNews) Governor Jerry Brown now goes down in history as the first person to legalize a state-wide medical vaccine experiment on blacks. He signed SB 277 into law today, reawakening the era of Tuskegee’s medical experiments against blacks while invoking the same twisted justifications as Tuskegee: It’s for “public health!”

In this pharmaceutical-funded sellout of his own citizens, Governor Jerry “Tuskegee” Brown also openly violates the American Medical Association’s own Code of Medical Ethics which says that patients, not government, should have the final say on medical interventions. And this from a Democrat Governor who claims to support “choice!” When it comes to injecting your children with toxic, brain-damaging vaccines laced with mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and MSG, Jerry Brown has no hesitation in stripping away that choice, making parents obedient slaves to the California medical police state.
