California is the first state in the United States to ban new Gasoline and Diesel cars by 2035. Governor Gavin Newsom of California issued an executive order today, directing that state to require that all new vehicles sold in 2015 to have zero emissions.

This executive order targets private passenger cars and trucks, as well as formulates a requirement that medium- and heavy-duty vehicles reach the same zero-percent target by the later date of 2045. There’s language that allows some flexibility for the proposals due to technological feasibility and cost-effectiveness

California joins, Austria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Egypt, France, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Slovenia, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom to stop selling gas and diesel cars..

Germany, India, Singapore, and Sri Lanka plans to eventually to eliminate all petro cars in their respective countries.

Sixty other nations are considering a partial or full phase out of fossil ban on petro vehicles.

In the United States, Los Angeles, New York, and Seattle plans to purchase electric vehicles and buses.

California attributes more than 50 percent of its carbon emissions—and a vast majority of its toxic air pollutants—to the broader transportation sector. Implementing this order fully, according to the state, would reduce its total carbon emissions by 35 percent or more alone.

Addressing the affordability issue, the state intends to support the used-vehicle market for zero-emissions vehicles; what this support would look like isn’t clear, but tax credits are often used for this purpose.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
