California Considers Ban On Non-Electric Cars

By Brian Spaen

California has been looking moreand more toward the future with renewable energy. Similar to countries like France and China, they’re setting goals to be fueled 100 percent by sustainable sources. Now, like those countries are trying to achieve themselves, the Sunshine State wants to ban to sale of gas altogether.

According to a Bloomberg interview with California Air Resources Board Chairman, Mary Nichols, the state government is looking into the potential for banning sales of traditional gas and diesel-fueled vehicles. Governor Jerry Brown has been pushing for a change and is hoping to see something happen in the next decade.

“I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’” Nichols said. “The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California.” Nichols also mentioned that she and others believed that sales could be stopped by 2030, adding that “it’s awfully hard to predict any of that with precision, but it doesn’t appear to be out of the question.”
