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.

How Feminism had degraded France

Feminism is designed to degraded and destroy not to empower. Feminism is Poison as well as Virus; they poison what they touch.

“The Feminist hate me don’t they? And I don’t blame them. For I hate Feminism. It is poison”

For me I like to keep Feminism out of country because it will degrading and destroy the country; what Feminism and Marxism is design to do.

European Union officials outraged by glyphosate opposition as Germany, Italy and France refuse to relicense herbicide

French couple given suspended jail time for refusing to vaccinate children

The couple refused to vaccinate their children against polio, tetanus and diphtheria because they believed the vaccine would do more harm than good.

A French couple have received a two-month suspended jail sentence for refusing to vaccinate their two young children.

Marc and Samia Larere were given the sentence in the criminal court at Auxere, 175 kilometres south of Paris, on Thursday.

The case has attracted widespread attention in France where strict vaccination laws mandate childhood immunisation.

The court was told the couple refused to vaccinate their children, aged three and 15 months, against polio, tetanus and diphtheria because they believed the vaccine would do more harm than good.

In France, proof of vaccination is required before a child can attend day care, school or sports programs.

When the couple could not provide proof their children had been immunised, they were initially charged with neglecting their children’s health, an offence that carries a maximum of two years in prison and a $46,000 fine.

The couple argued they refused to use the combined polio, tetanus and diphtheria vaccine because it contained a “toxic product”.

The charge was downgraded to “refusing to undergo mandatory vaccination”, which carries a maximum of six months’ imprisonment and a $5800 fine.

New vaccination laws came into effect in Australia on January 1, requiring families to immunise their children or miss out on subsidised childcare, worth thousands of dollars a year.

The same rule applies to the family tax benefit part A supplement.

My Conclusion: talk about medical tyranny. Getting fined and being throw in jail for refusing to vaccine their children. Now a law passed in Australia that children are required to get vaccinated of miss out on subsidised childcare. Do you know why the government ran law through because the people are not paying attention and allowing the government to pass such laws.

Happening Now: Authorities Are Using ‘Paris Attacks’ To Fast-Track New Mass Surveillance Laws

PARIS LEGACY? Western society inches towards the elites’ ultimate goal of a unifying global fascist and authoritarian technocracy.

The CIA and government officials around the world are using the Paris attacks to push brand new surveillance laws. And it was all planned in advance.

While democratic systems usually take months (if not years) to pass new laws and legislation, it only took a few days after the Paris attacks to slap honest citizens with more surveillance laws. Several organizations are indeed capitalizing on the fear and panic caused by the attacks to bring forth a brand new agenda that takes a bold new step towards total government surveillance. What’s worse: Leaked information proves that authorities were waiting on a terror attack to go forward with their plan.

UN criticizes ‘excessive’ French spy law as it goes into effect

The UN Committee for Human Rights has slammed France for adopting a new surveillance law saying it grants “excessively broad surveillance powers” to intelligence services. The country’s Constitutional Council upheld the controversial law.

“The bill grants overly broad powers for very intrusive surveillance on the basis of vast and badly defined objectives,” the report published on Friday said, as cited by the Guardian. The committee (UNCHR) called on France to “guarantee that any interference in private life must conform to principles of legality, proportionality and necessity”.

The bill was passed by the French parliament in May and late on Thursday was approved by the Constitutional Council – the highest authority on constitutional matters.

“From now on, France has a security framework against terrorism that respects liberties. It’s decisive progress,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls wrote in his Twitter.

Numerous human right organization voiced strong criticism of the new law.

“The surveillance measures authorized by this law are wildly out of proportion”, Gauri van Gulik, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for Europe and Central Asia, said on Friday. “Large swathes of France’s population could soon find themselves under surveillance on obscure grounds and without prior judicial approval”, he added.

“The French Constitutional Council legalizes mass surveillance and endorses a historical decline in fundamental rights,” La Quadrature du Net, a French digital rights groups, said in a statement.

The controversial law gives intelligence services the power to tap the mobile phones and e-mails of anyone linked to a “terrorist” inquiry without the permission of a court. It also obliges internet providers and mobile companies to provide spy agencies with information upon request.

Intelligence services can also place cameras and other recording devices in private homes and can monitor every action of computer users.

French Environment and Energy Minister Ségolène Royal is sending a clear message to Monsanto – biotech maker responsible for Round Up chemicals, and the target of a class action lawsuit in California, soon to be the taken to the US Federal Court.

Royal made the pronouncement this past Sunday that the weed killer Round Up should not be sold in garden shops since it is potentially harmful to human beings.

She told France 3 television:

France must be offensive on stopping pesticides.”

She did not articulate how she plans on enforcing the ban. Continue reading French Minister Asks Stores to Stop Selling Round Up

Roundup banned in France! Yes!

food for a future

Some positive news from France, they have banned the weedkiller Roundup because of it’s link to cancer. The UN have classified Glyphosphate, which is the active ingredient in the weedkiller as ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’.

This is big news. Monsanto – the worlds most powerful toxic chemical peddler – makes billions selling Roundup to farmers and to the public. They market RoundupReadytm crops that are genetically modified to be resistant to Roundup. This means farmers must use Roundup to control weeds, they must also buy seeds from Monsanto every year as the seeds are sterile. Thus causing a dependency. Aside from the obvious fact that the crop will be saturated with Roundup, weeds have also developed resistance to Roundup leading them to become the only weed in an area and thus putting the ecosystem out of balance. And of course, the farmers then use more and more roundup…
