Govenor Newsom Says No To Selling Gas-Powered Vehicles to Fight Climate Change
Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order that will prohibit the selling of all new gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035.
The order was issued as California continues to struggle with wildfires due to global warming. This executive order is to urge drivers in California to switch to electric vehicles to decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” Governor Newsom stated. “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,” he said. “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.”
Road to Zero Emissions
In this executive order, the dealers and manufacturers are required to sell new passenger cars and trucks with zero-emission by 2035.
This order is only applicable to new vehicle sales. Thus, consumers who own internal combustion vehicles are still allowed to own, use, buy, and sell them in California.
“By the time the new rule goes into effect, zero-emission vehicles will almost certainly be cheaper and better than the traditional fossil fuel-powered cars,” Newsom confirmed. “The upfront cost of electric vehicles are projected to reach parity with conventional vehicles in just a matter of years, and the cost of owning the car – both in maintenance and how much it costs to power the car mile for a mile – is far less than a fossil fuel burning vehicle.”
