The day many of us hoped was coming is here.
Given the choice of breathing or continuing to drive our big bad gas guzzlers it appears our leaders have chosen breathing over living in a smoggy city. I for one approve of that choice.
I’m sure we’ll hear the usual arguments today, tomorrow, over the next 10 years – “We’re not ready,” “EV’s have no range” “But I drive my car to work” “They’re not as good for the environment as you think” etc etc etc. Someone had to make a move away from oil. I’m glad it wqs California.
Thursday’s vote is historic. For decades we have been fighting to curb the impact of motor vehicle pollution, preferring to kick the can further down the road to future generations while continuing to make and drive the cars creating the smog that hurts us and our environment.
I hope people realize that we are finally making the decisions needed break our reliance on fossil fuels and – I hope – turn our attention to developing cleaner alternatives.
