California Lawmaker Pushing State to Go Gas Free by 2040

California Lawmaker Pushing State to Go Gas Free by 2040”

At the time, no specific date had been chosen, as state lawmakers were only beginning to explore the idea.

A Californian Democrat plans on introducing a bill in the state that will ban the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles from 2040.

He will introduce the bill next month during the next legislative session. If adopted, it would eliminate a huge chunk of carbon emissions from the transportation sector - now the top source of the greenhouse gas in the USA - as part of the state's quest to slash emissions by 80% from 1990 levels by 2050. From 2040, he wants the state's motor vehicles department to only register vehicles that don't emit carbon dioxide, namely fully-electric and hydrogen-fuel cell cars.

"Until you set a deadline, nothing gets done", Ting said in an interview. If the bill is adopted it would help California reach its goals of slashing emissions by 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050.

While it would certainly be a controversial move, banning fossil fuel cars already has support from a number of lawmakers.
