To accelerate their efforts on combating global warming, California, a world leader in manufacturing and deploying zero-emission vehicles, is making a big move. As recently announced by Governor Gavin Newsom, the state plans to already ban the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by the year 2035.
Through an executive order, Governor Newsom directed that “It shall be a goal of the State that 100 percent of in-state sales of new passenger cars and trucks will be zero-emission by 2035.”
“For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. You deserve to have a car that doesn’t give your kids asthma. Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse — and create more days filled with smoky air,” said Newsom on Wednesday.
Here’s one of the governor’s recent Tweets about the state’s action:
NEW: We’re facing a climate crisis.
We need bold action.
CA is phasing out the internal combustion engine.
By 2035 every new car sold in CA will be an emission-free vehicle.
Cars shouldn’t give our kids asthma.
Make wildfires worse.
Or raise sea levels.
