Ban Fracking in Calif. Now—Not 2024, Say Climate Groups Following Newsom Order to Phase Out Gas-Powered Cars

We can economically get rid of the freeways.

The purposes of freeways are (1) for a tiny number of oversized trucks carrying huge loads that won’t fit on Teleport, and (2) for bicycles. There isn’t any purpose for smog.

California’s state government can stare at perfectly good answers all day and see nothing. Cue Sargeant Schultz.

Cool, Thanks for the link. Should take a few days to digest all those ideas.
Funny Hogan’s Heroes joke, btw. Haven’t seen that show in several decades. I used to watch re-runs on …Nick at Nite, I believe. Back in the cable TV days, when I was a kid, LOL. OH wow…
Regarding the article though, I would have been impressed if Newsom said 2025.
The battery-electric-vehicle(BEV) is over 130 years old.

The BEV is perfect for fleets of goods transport /long range /commute /mass (albeit individual container) transit under A.i.(autonomous/driver-less) vehicles.

I do not want to get rid of gasoline engine cars …as toys for grownups.
I love to drive. I drive myself crazy, daily.

Fracking… the name is ugly. It is an ugly business too. No more NEW permits as of 12-31-2020, would have been better. Oil drilling too. No new permits.
Big (oil) Energy is rich and powerful. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. You know?

We need more water, our rights, and Big Agriculture (farming) articles for/about California.
IMHO

I repeat myself. For emphasis.
