    So in 2035 that they are planning to remove all gas vehicles, how is this gonna work exactly?

      Repair and improve the outdated electrical grid so that it can maintain the growing amount of people charging their electric cars. It isn't a very complicated plan. Everyone's just kind of biding their time until they figure out the storage issue.

        But we're still burning coal and natural gas to generate that power...
        But no, that's OK we can just offload carbon to power producers, then grant them trillions in government funds to improve the grid so they can charge us more because we're charging EVs.
        It makes perfect sense or something.

          Sure. That's why its called a transition.

          Listen, I don't think anybody claims to have the flawless transition plan but the reality is that renewable is the future. The price keeps dropping as the technology gets better and as soon as the storage situation gets figured out it'll be a market no-brainer. Major superpowers like China and India are already sinking billions into the infrastructure to position themselves as lead producers of renewable energy. Lots of people are going to dragged kicking and screaming into the next millennium but such was the case with horse shoe makers when the car was invented.

            The next few years are going to become a historical learning example of what happens when the government mandates technology that isn't ready yet.
            Without massive government subsidies, EV technology isn't remotely feasible, including Tesla. California has barely "transitioned" into EV only status and their electrical grid is failing.

            The next stupid political debate in this country is going to be EV vs IC vehicles. Hope y'all are ready to become car enthusiasts in addition to climatologists lmao

              The government isn't mandating technology, anon. They're making investments in technology that is objectively becoming cheaper, cleaner and more effective. The technology is ready, but much like the automobile example its going to take a massive amount of investment into infrastructure to bring it up to scale.

              >Without massive government subsidies, EV technology isn't remotely feasible, including Tesla
              That was true probably 10-15 years ago. That isn't remotely the case today.

              >California has barely "transitioned" into EV only status and their electrical grid is failing.
              Yes, of course. Most electrical grids are extremely outdated and nowhere near equipped to experience a sudden shift in energy consumption from gas to electric overnight.

                Several states have passed laws banning IC vehicles anon, catch up.

                Thats just Tesla.

                >Most electrical grids are extremely outdated and nowhere near equipped to experience a sudden shift in energy consumption from gas to electric overnight.
                Which lends weight to the argument that EV vehicles don't solve carbon issues, they simply transfer them to a different point in the chain of energy distribution

                They do however, allow 3rd party entities to limit their mobility or outright disable them. Kind of like those smart thermostats in Colorado. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

                Rest assured: when EV's become as cringey as vaping, we'll be here to make fun of you

            If it’s better then just let the market adopt them. Why spend trillions of other peoples money in just one state? The state can’t even build high speed rail

      there is this stuff called gasoline which is dank at storing energy

      the goal is to make energy so expensive that the average person is reduced to serfhood while the rich and oligarchs continue to fly in their private jets

      if it is anything like how california has banned nonmicrostamped guns, the goal is to use the tech mandate to ban cars like they used their tech mandate to ban guns. Didn't obongo's EPA just lose a scotus case over this?

    Electric is stupid one attack a soler flare and bam the hole state goes down the hole grid I'm not kidding.Thay can't fix the electrical grid by 2035 Ridgecrest CA already has rolling blackout.90 percent of the car batteries come from China that's wright that hown our debt and they can shut us down. Wishful thinking demanding zero poluting cars the technology does not exist and may not fore the next 100 years.The answer is simple live in a box become a bum eat trash and send 80 billion to youkrain to kill Russia their poluting our air that must be terrorists and they hate puppies.
