This, from a state that can’t produce enough electricity now due to environment regulations.

    During the teens, the enviro-idiots rampaged against Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. It was too dangerous, it was going to explode, a tsunami was going to make it melt down, blah. PGE decided to toss in the towel and appease the solar power crowd. Fast forward to 2022 with power failures and more coming because the sun does not shine at night, the wind does not always blow and there are nowhere near enough batteries to cover the shortfall for more than a couple of hours, and governor Nuisance wants to run for POTUS. Suddenly DCanyon is good and must get a big subsidy to keep running another 10 years (it generates about 9% of CA's electricity). I predict the same will occur around 2032-33 wrt ICE cars.

    I haven't seen the law, but I have questions. If a Kalifornia resident buys an internal combustion vehicle in 2034, will he/she be forced to sell it in 2035? Will residents be allowed to out of state to buy one and bring it home? If someone wants to move there, will he/she be legally forced to sell it before being allowed to take up residence? Just what the hell does the state government think they'll do when all of the gas stations, auto parts stores, auto repair shops, and everything else associated with internal combustion cars are all closed, and probably millions of residents are unemployed, and tax revenues plummet 30 or 40 percent? Will Kalifornia become a Starnesville, population 40 million?

    With no electricity, no cars becasue the grid will go down, they also are destroying their own economy. Calif. is known as the place cars are revamped into their best selves, power added, old new cars tricked out, all that will be mving to another state. In Vegas a few weeks ago, Barret Jackson saw millions of dollars change hands as car collectors bought their favoiritemuscle cars of the past. We car enthusiasts are not going away, nor giving up. During the shut down, Burger King opened finally, and there as we drove in the lot, about a dozen glorious perfect Corvettes, owners stopping for coffee on way to a rally. They were Black, friendly and thoroughly enjoying their cars. It crosses gender, race and economic levels, we want, no demand out muscle cars!Those backyard mechanice are just as devoted and will be in the mix, with more personal skill and less money output up front, but just as determined.

    I understand Newsom is pregnant. He had unprotected anal sex and is now considering an abortion. Swept under the rug was Gavin saying that he identifies as a black female undocumented Relative of JPGetty, Jerry Brown, Nancy Pelosi and Jaba the Hut.

    There's not enough lithium on the planet for this lofty idea, simply not enough battery storage capability. Let not discuss the pollution aspect as what batteries there are are not recyclable and neither are the windmill blades that use up to 30 gallons of lube oil to simply function, and they leak.

    Since EV's average price is $60,000, I suspect that used car sales will start going up as they ramp up more and more required EV sales versus gas cars. CarMax would probably be a good stock to invest in. I do remember hearing that GM said that they would not be building gas cars after a certain date which I believe was the end of the decade. Of course they also said when the government instituted the gas guzzler tax on low mileage cars GM would never sell a car that required a gas guzzler tax. The new Corvette Z06 has about a $3,000 gas guzzler tax on it. So I don't put a whole lot of faith in long range talk from GM.

    And then there's the infrastructure that the car owner has to set up which can run into the thousands of dollars. Somehow I just don't see the lower and middle classes stepping up to the plate to jump on the EV wagon. And when the government announced the $7,500 tax break on new EV's, some of the car makers raise their prices by $7,500. 😲🤬

    The problem for California is going to be that unless they improve their grid and generating capacity, there's going to be a lot of EV's in the garage that aren't charged. So in 50 years, California is going to look like Cuba with the newest car being one from the 2034 model year. The upside is there are some very nice looking '57 Chevys in Cuba. 😉

    To be clear...
    Invite in MILLIONS of illegals/year (low income to poor people).
    Have them get jobs, usually requiring transportation.

    Then introduce THIS CRAP so that the POOREST AMONG US (these same Illegals),
    cannot possibly afford to live and feed their families...

    Why? Ohhhh, so THEY move to other states, and ALL STATES SHARE YOUR PAIN.

    Pure Genius!

    Already a shortage of rental trucks to drive out of Cforn. Maybe make money by putting your motorcycle in a truck, driving it to Carforlornia, selling it and motorcycling home? Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Atlas Shrugged. Now in non-fiction.

      If you want to know which States are in deep trouble, all you have to do is look at U-Haul's rates for trips to that destination. The lower the rate, the worse the destination. (I used to work there...)

    If the aim is dramatic population reduction, then this will get there, at least for California.

    40m down to, what? Perhaps ten million could be supported with an eighteenth century level of technology plus hydro power.
