New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy recently announced that the state will phase out the sale of new cars that run on gas by 2035, joining California and New York. The Advanced Clean Cars II rule, set to take effect Jan. 1, will make the Garden State the 11th state on such a trajectory, joining Vermont, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Virginia, Rhode Island, Maryland and Connecticut. The rule, which California originated in 2022, will have no effect on use or ownership of existing gas-powered vehicles or used car sales.

New Jersey will phase out the sale of new gas-powered cars by 2035, joining states such as California and New York, Gov. Phil Murphy (D) announced Wednesday.

The Advanced Clean Cars II rule, set to take effect Jan. 1, will make the Garden State the 11th state on such a trajectory, joining Vermont, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Virginia, Rhode Island, Maryland and Connecticut. The rule, which California originated in 2022, will have no effect on use or ownership of existing gas-powered vehicles or used car sales.

New Jersey has already adopted an emissions standard for trucks that also originated in California.

“By filing the landmark Advanced Clean Cars II rule, New Jersey builds upon its standing as a national leader in climate action and its participation in the global Accelerating to Zero commitment,” Murphy said in a statement. “The steps we take today to lower emissions will improve air quality and mitigate climate impacts for generations to come, all while increasing access to cleaner car choices. Indeed, together with my Administration’s continuing investments in voluntary electric vehicle incentives, charging infrastructure, and the green economy, these new standards will preserve consumer choice and promote affordability for hardworking New Jerseyans across the state.”

The New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA), which heavily lobbied against adoption of the rule, blasted the announcement and said it did not address the lack of demand for electric vehicles.

“Automotive retailers, which have already invested billions in electric vehicles … warned that a heavy-handed mandate will not work for the dealers — especially with unsold EVs piling up on lots all around the country,” Ray Cantor, NJBIA deputy chief government affairs officer, said in a statement. “The failure of this policy can be seen nationally as manufacturers cut back on their previous commitments to EVs and have called for a pause in any mandates.”

July 16, 2024 Reclaim the Net 2

Meta, aka Facebook, filed a new patent application detailing a method of authenticating users by combining vocalization – “and skin vibration.” Documents reveal that this is the kind of biometric data which uses not only a person’s voice but also how speaking causes that person’s skin tissue to vibrate.

France: Leftist Communists Win Election. New Investigation Against Right-Wing Leader Marine Le Pen

A huge win for the far-right was predicted by polls prior to the election. Conservative Jordan Bardella, 28, claimed that Le Pen’s party had been deprived of victory by an “unnatural alliance” between Macron’s camp and the left. He added, “These agreements have thrown France into the arms of the ­extreme left.”

Well.. they are not banning the sale of gasoline for all the cars sold pre their idiot deadline… so.. the idiots are simply diverting sales to states that will sell them.. so it may not even dissuade Detroit production…
And for the knockout punch, it won’t take that long for the new type of combustion engine called the LIQUID PISTON to reach the auto market… Those engines are way much smaller but much more powerful so they use much less energy.. so they will be highly desirable….
We will adapt and watch those dozen fools choke on their tyranny… ttyl

This is pure madness. There is no reason for this. 6,000 things are made from fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide is needed for plant growth. EVs have no future. Lots of Americans are going to be like Cuba: driving well used cars. Want to see the list of things made from fossil fuels? Send me a note: [email protected]

New emissions rule will mean no shipping from or to California or New Jersey. China will have to ship goods to Oregon or Washington or Texas (better get that canal fixed).

Used car prices will go to the moon. How long before gas stations are shut down?
