California will phase out the sale of all gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035 in a bid to lead the U.S. in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging the state's drivers to switch to electric cars.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Wednesday that amounts to the most aggressive clean-car policy in the United States.

I was on the research committee on an advisory basis and applaud this move. We must eliminate fossil fuels.

I just leased a Tesla and I love it. I think cars will all slowly switch to electric without government intervention.

The U of M researchers calculate that, given the energy mix in the U.S., the average plug-in produces as much CO2 as a conventional car that gets 55.4 miles per gallon.

(For context, the average mpg of all the cars, SUVs, vans and light trucks sold in the U.S. over the past year is 25.2 mpg.)

Still seems like a vast improvement.

oh I should correct myself
there’s only one coal power plant left in cali, but it’s supposedly only for industrial use, so it wouldn’t be powering electric cars anyway

It's amazing how much contamination is out there, tbh, and people are clueless about it in general. I've learned so much about that and how remediation occurs at this job.

Damn note wasn't included.

I find it so interesting, but it certainly makes sense the oldest developed parts of the country have the most.

Oldest, most developed, AND most densely and longest-populated parts. No coincidence there.

Thanks for the thoughtful and informative posts.

I don't sit on all these boards, committees, etc. simultaneously. You're right, there wouldn't be time. We meet at different times. These days we videoconference so it takes up less time since there's no travel.

Most of the time I'm invited to serve and asked to review information. Review takes a while and then more time is spent completing analysis and recommendations (A&R) documents. However, the whole process might take as little as 8-10 hours.

Would I have been a superhero if I had waited it out and took all the classes to be a Environmental Health and Safety Engineer?

Would women be throwing themselves at me?

Would I have been like Captain Planet?

Not even close, lol.

My place of business is very much not for the "tree hugger" type.

I work with Certified Environmental Managers, which is a certification granted by each state.

Those were the classes they were sending me to at the medical device place.

Oh, they wanted you to be their Health and Safety Manager?

Their EHS engineer.

They had me taking ergonomics courses to start.
