SAN FRANCISCO -- Seeking to influence other states and Washington, California air regulators passed sweeping auto emission standards Friday that include a mandate to have 1.4 million electric and hybrid vehicles on state roads by 2025.

How the hell can something like this even be enforced? The regulators might as well try to overrule the law of gravity.
We should start putting liens on the personal property of all these “regulators” for damages and make them share in the pain.
Why didn’t they pass a law that all cars must fly low by 2025? I mean since we’re passing laws about how things must be in the future.
I’m jus’ sayin’.
I don’t understand Californians. I visit the LA area once or twice per year and the freeways are packed with SUV’s and large european luxury cars. Nobody seems to be worried about fuel ueage. Why do they tolerate these regulations?
by 2012 , no , now, all the state of denial is going to be , is as it is... a toilet.
The language is English, the Country is the United States of America....
Get the hell out all you illegals, 65 years old or not... illegal is illegal... you sucked this country into a hole,
We are going to take it back, and we will loose some of our lives, but it shall be done.
EL - Legally here!!!
Does anyone really believe California will exist in 2025?
In 2025, those running that joint will look back at the clowns that passed this and shout, “Bite me!”.
Don't give them any ideas.
Yeah, but California ain't building any new power plants.
This is going to fail.
California’s economy, as a percentage of worldwide auto sales, is going to shrink substantially in the next decade. To the point it will be selling less cars than any two coastal Chinese provinces. On top of that, the cars in California will be the most expensive in the world for base models, but with a working class population with some of the lowest after tax take home income in the world.
The “West” has reached peak car use, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_car
the “East” will be the deciding force behind technology mandates in low end cars of the future.
Yeah, but California ain’t building any new power plants. ........... and banning all their coal fired plants.
how the heck can that work???
Must have really worked well, as there is no fog in L.A., now.
Also, the UN through a program called WP29 is supposed to set auto harmonization standards going forward. If California exceeds the standards it’s unlikely manufacturers will bow to California’s whims.
Say hello to brown outs..
The only reason it exists' now is to keep the Pacific Ocean from getting Arizona wet.

So when Sheriff Joe in Arizona started deporting illegals, the Feds came in screaming that the Sheriff was stepping on Federal toes.
Now CARB is stepping on the Feds toes and not a peep.
“Many other changes included in these sweeping regulations. Please click to read. It’s just wrong that regulators, not the politicians we elect, have the power to turn our lives upside down in such a major way.”
Yup...These unelected officials now control our country. A socialist president can put in place radical leftist activists in every department, and then they can arbitrarily create whatever law they wish. No need for a legislature. They don’t even have a say anymore.
“California air regulators passed sweeping auto emission standards Friday...”
Nice that the legislature doesn’t have to vote on this kind of stuff anymore.
...odd definition of a democracy (or a Republic).
Come to Texas, Freepers.
Not only that ( not building new power plants) they are removing several hydro-electric dams “to save the fish”.
Auto makers should just abandon the state. It will look like Cuba in a few years.
I didn’t know that. That’s nuts!
What weve learned from history is that we dont learn anything from history. The world has already forgotten the millions of Soviet citizens who died during the 1930s when their Communist government interfered with their food supply, and millions died again in the 1950s when Chinas Communist government disrupted Chinas food supply.
History is once again repeating its self, as leftists are once again interfering with the food supply, and once again people are dying. Obamas leftist administration is pushing the use of E85 alcohol-gasoline with no regard to what this is doing to the worlds food supply. So far, the people who are dying as a result of this disruption of the food supply by American leftists are not, as yet, American. American leftists (read Democrats) get that feel good feeling over reduced carbon emissions as a result of their use of E85 fuel, and just as Soviet and Chinese Communists of the past showed a complete disregard for the deaths of those who died as a result of their interference with the food supply, American leftists now show a complete disregard for the people dying as a result of their use of this E85 alcohol-gasoline.
American leftists dont seem to care that the amount of grain required to manufacture enough alcohol to fill the fuel tank on one E85 SUV could feed a person for one year, and they dont seem to care that the removal of this food from the world food market has caused a shortage resulting in the price of food to almost double around the world. Rising food prices causes some inconvenience for these American leftists, but in the poorest countries of the world those who could only afford to eat twice a day can now only afford to eat once a day. This reduced diet in the worlds poorest countries is destroying the health of an already weakened people and is especially deadly among their nursing mothers. Many nursing mothers who could previously produce enough milk to feed their babies now under a reduced diet cant produce enough milk and their babies die.
Just as the Communists of the past had no feeling for what their misguided food programs did to people, American leftist dont seem to care that every time they fill their E85 SUVs gas tank, somewhere in one of the worlds poorest counties a baby dies.
But, then, American leftists (read Democrats) have a long, proud history of choosing to kill babies, now dont they?
Wait, there's no electric power to recharge the batteries and run the plant because we destroyed the three hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River (northern CA) and we've been decommissioning power plants to buy our electricity out of state. Ooops. Those suppliers cut us off. Oh, oh.
