“The most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change…”
[Ed. Note: So brave, passing rules that will take effect a decade after your dumb-ass is gone from office.]

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) announced Wednesday that all car companies will be prohibited from selling new non-zero emission cars and passenger trucks beginning in 2035 in order to get the state closer to its reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions goals.
“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” said Newsom in a statement. “For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. Californians shouldn’t have to worry if our cars are giving our kids asthma. Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse – and create more days filled with smoky air. Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines.”
