Does the new law seem perfect? No.

But for transitional shift impetus, this far reaching new law appears to become a trendsetter not only for vehicles of choice to buy and drive, but also for states to follow!

This a necessarily wide ranging article, and the 3 excerpts below will I hope both encourage you to read the original post, but in turn also give you hope, like it’s done me 😊

..states are joining New York, which passed a similar law last year banning the sale of gasoline-powered cars and light trucks by 2035, and then expanding the ban to cover heavy trucks by 2045…

…an additional 12 states (Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont) and Washington D.C. have policies tied to California’s, which makes them leading candidates to adopt their own versions of the 2035 ban….

Henry Ford would be proud I think if he saw this below —

“At Ford, combating climate change is a strategic priority, and we’re proud of our partnership with California for stronger vehicle emissions standards,” said Bob Holycross, chief sustainability officer at Ford Motor, in a statement, adding that the new rule “is a landmark standard that will define clean transportation and set an example for the United States.”

GM itself has also been focusing on an eventual shift ; plus the link embedded in the quote below has info directly the purchaser of an EV car —

Already, some EVs have an edge in total cost of ownership because of savings on fuel and maintenance.

In addition, Insideclimatenews includes summaries of these 3 headline articles with even more good news —

  • Honda and LG Energy Will Jointly Build a U.S. Battery Plant:
  • Climate Law Incentives Prompt First Solar to Build Another U.S. Factory:
  • Electric Battery Maker to Locate Factory in West Virginia, Employ Former Miners:

These incentives apparently only 1st require a willingness to save the our planet. That’s not too bad I think ☺️

Stay well everyone! Stay hopeful! ❤️

I support passage of The Voting Rights Act 🙏❤️😊

Voting, in our democracy, is the purest form of expression.

Dissenting, affirming, protesting – 
– all flow through the form of the ballot, not, the bullet…

Stay well everyone – for oneself, and for those who need us most..the children….
