The energy problems in California caused by the state’s “green” regulations have caused electricity shortages over the summer, which apparently made it the perfect time for Gov. Gavin Newsom to sign this executive order:
Amid a slew of wildfires which have burned millions of acres up and down the West Coast, California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an ambitious executive order Wednesday requiring that all new passenger vehicles sold in the state be zero-emission by 2035. https://t.co/7CiehcALjm pic.twitter.com/A80YpWotAr

BREAKING: Governor Gavin Newsom signs executive order to ban gas-powered cars in California by 2035.
All new cars sold in the state must be zero-emission vehicles by that time.
His administration says transportation accounts for 50% of CA's greenhouse gas emissions.

Hey, what could possibly go wrong?

Yeah, Newsom obviously didn’t think this one through.
California: Our electric utilities are literally killing people and destroying whole communities
Also California: Let's give them a monopoly on powering cars, too https://t.co/WIraBeUEEs

There’s no “genius” like progressive politician genius!
Mandating electric cars… in a state that can't even keep the lights on. ?

It's ironic that he's banning gas powered cars in a state that can't keep the lights on.

This will go wonderfully with all these power outages and energy saving initiatives that compel people to turn off everything by 3pm or face shortages.

Wait until they find out how much co2 emissions go into making 1 EV battery. https://t.co/SB0YJUlIDq

I was wondering how he planned to stop people from fleeing California. https://t.co/KJwxH2iHev

Newsom’s obviously got a foolproof plan for that.
