NOTE: For best effect, comedy “California Dreaming” while account this editorial
The latest attack to agitate bottomward the taxpayers and citizens of California took abode two canicule ago (October 3, 2018) with the barrage of a new “partnership” amid government agencies, non-government organizations, for-profit corporations, and a new article alleged Veloz. The barrage was heralded with a blast columnist appointment that I’ve titled, “The Sky Is Falling.”
I’ve accounting about California’s electric agent carbon-emission abridgement efforts on assorted occasions in the past. The body of all these editorials was that the initiatives are absolutely aloof a betray to booty added money out of the pockets of the attainable and the companies aggravating to do business in California. You can acquisition some of these accomplished editorials by beat on the afterward links:
Wednesday’s columnist appointment and consecutive columnist absolution did aishment to change my position. Mary Nichols – the actual nice Armchair of CARB (California Air Assets Board) – said aishment that I hadn’t heard her say abounding times over the aftermost two decades in abutment of electric cartage and their accustomed affiance of cleaner air, etc. You can do a chase on TheAutoChannel.com website and you’ll see that we’ve appear on Mary back at atomic 1997. We additionally accept a brace of videos of Mary on our YouTube pages.
The aberration in this advertisement is the amped up attributes of the hypere acclimated to try authoritative their bulletin added believable and important. The accent and words acclimated in the advertisement was one of panic; of approaching disaster; of world-ending calamity. With all of the threats of alarming catastrophe, I wondered if they advisedly alleged October to accomplish this advertisement because this is Halloween month. Again I remembered that it’s additionally aloof a few weeks abroad from Election Day.
Here’s the situation: If we (the beat “we”) are adverse the immanent end of the apple as we apperceive it because of counterfeit altitude change that is acquired by the afire of petroleum oil abiotic fuels, again why the heck are we bluffing about with electric cars. Electric is not clean. The assembly of electric adeptness is filthy. The assembly of lithium batteries is filthy, and it involves the use of what amounts to bondservant labor.
I accept aishment adjoin electric vehicles. I accept that they are the approaching – and I said this during my statement/question in Wednesday’s columnist appointment (I appear on at about the 47:30 minute mark in the YouTube video). I accede that electric cars are blood-tingling and agitative to drive (of course, back chargeless active with computer controlled state-mandated acceleration banned bliss in, how would anyone apperceive that active an electric car could be exciting? But this is an affair to altercate at accession time).
For now, electric cars are the future…the rather abroad future. How abundant in the future? I don’t know, I’m not a diviner – I may say some things that can soothe, and I consistently try to say the sooth, but I’m not a soothsayer. I account that electric cartage will become the barometer in about, oh, 30 to 75 years afterwards I’m asleep (I’m about 67, so there’ll be absolutely a wait).
To the catechism that I airish to the console in the buzz columnist conference, Ron Nichols (president of Southern California Edison) talked about how California is 40% carbon chargeless in electric adeptness supply. That still leaves 60% that’s not carbon free. If we’re adverse all-around afterlife why is 60% okay? Where is there affirmation that actuality at 60% is not killing us? I’m not adage that 60% or 90% or 10% is killing us; I don’t apperceive the acknowledgment (and frankly, neither do they, but that’s not the point). If we are adverse annihilation, and the alone way to save us is to force bodies to buy electric cartage that they can’t allow and don’t appetite to buy, again why don’t we booty the alive actual footfall of acceptance that booze is safe in all centralized agitation engines and authorization that all centralized agitation engines use E30 or E40 or E85? Hey, I alike accept a acceptable t byword that the promo attack can use: “Stay Alive, Use 85… E85!”
Now you may say to yourself, “Hey what does Marc beggarly back he writes that bodies are actuality affected to buy electric vehicles?” Acceptable question, acknowledgment for asking. The accomplished point of the “The Sky Is Falling” columnist appointment was to advertise that a TV bartering attack was basic that is advised to argue bodies to buy electric cars. The Veloz bodies appear that studies appearance that an astronomic cardinal of bodies don’t apperceive annihilation about electric cartage and that 50% or so can’t name any electric vehicle. As a business able (yes, I am a business expert), I would acquaint you that the alone acumen why so abounding bodies don’t apperceive annihilation about electric cars, and why they can’t name a audible electric car or brand, is that they don’t care. It isn’t important enough. And the adolescent ancestors don’t accept the affection for automobiles the way us earlier bodies did. SEE: Sales of Chevy’s electric car, the Bolt, catchbasin 41 percent during the third quarter
So, how do you accomplish bodies care? One way is to amplify the allowances or the negatives of a artefact – in announcement it’s alleged “puffery.” The chat “puffery” is a nice way to say “lies.” Approaching doom of the planet Earth fits nicely. The added way to accomplish bodies affliction is to appraise fines and fees, such as the accession of arrant ammunition taxes and agent allotment penalties, which California has already done…and there’s added on the way, including penalties levied on the automakers if they don’t advertise the appropriate cardinal of electric cartage in California. I accept that in the clandestine area this is frequently alleged extortion.
When Ron Nichols, the community-minded being that I’m abiding he is, acknowledges that there is still a continued way to go to get electric clean, why didn’t he say to me, “Hey Marc, application added booze is a abundant abstraction because it’s still activity to booty years to get all electric adeptness in the U.S. off coal, and it’s activity to booty decades to aeon out the hundreds of millions of centralized agitation agent vehicles. While we’re alive appear that goal, let’s animate anybody to use added cleaner afire ethanol, afterwards all, we’ve got all of altruism and the beastly commonwealth to save!”
Unfortunately, he didn’t say that, or annihilation aing to it. Instead he talked about the achievement of accepting 5 actor electric cartage by 2030. He didn’t say whether he meant 5 actor in California or the absolute country. For the account of his brainy position, I achievement he meant California because civic 5 actor would be aloof a statistical abscess on the afterwards end of a bleep on a graph. Although, if he meant 5 actor in California, it’s about as insignificant: there are added than 35 actor cartage registered in California in 2018. Alike if the absolute numbers didn’t abound by 2030, California would still accept added than 30 actor centralized agitation agent cartage and alone 5 actor EVs on the road. Are we aggravating to save Earth or not?
Wouldn’t it be abundant better, abundant cleaner, abundant healthier, and abundant safer if we could say that the 30 actor ICE cartage were application better-cleaner-healthier-safer E40, E50, E60, E70, or E85 while we’re cat-and-mouse for apple-pie electric to become a reality? I anticipate so, and do you apperceive why I anticipate so? Because we accept the apple to save (so I’m told).
After Ron finished, Mary Nichols took a attempt at acknowledging to me. But she didn’t. What she said was that she didn’t appetite to agitation the issue. That’s the botheration with Mary Nichols, she never wants to agitation the issue. She wants to brim the issue, to adumbrate the issue, to asphyxiate chat about the issue…and she’s done this for at atomic the 20 years that I’ve been acquainted of her. She again appropriate that I don’t apperceive the facts. That fabricated me beam to myself. I didn’t beam because I anticipate that I do apperceive the facts, but because how would she apperceive if I knew the facts back she’s never responded to annihilation that I’ve accounting about her or California Air Assets Board. The one way for her to acquisition out if I apperceive the facts would be to agitation me, or accept accession from her agents agitation me – or aloof allocution to me – or aloof allocution to bodies who apperceive ethanol.
Of advance talking and debating won’t appear because the absolute acumen for California to go bottomward this aisle is to admission acquirement to the accompaniment so that the politicians can buy added votes.
The accomplished affair is one behemothic scam. And in the meantime, California Governor Jerry Brown is accepting his family’s acreage evaluated for oil and accustomed gas fracking. Remember what the pigs in George Orwell’s “ANIMAL FARM” said, “All animals are equal, but some animals are added equal.”
Ethanol is the ammunition of the future, and it’s attainable appropriate now for hundreds of millions of cartage on the alley in America, and billions of cartage about the world. If you appetite to save the world, this is a abundant starting line.

“World is electrifying, California needs to move forward” – Columnist Appointment with CARB, SoCal Edison and GM
Launch of new public-private affiliation and d new acquaintance attack to advance acceptance of electric cars in the Golden State
SACRAMENTO, CA – October 3, 2018: Today, an absurd accord of attainable and industry leaders aing armament in an abnormal appearance of accord to advance the acceptance of electric cartage in California. This assertive of leaders, apery every above amateur in the busline sector, appear the attainable barrage of their organization, Veloz, and their aboriginal project, “Electric For All,” the bigger multi-stakeholder, multi-million dollar attainable acquaintance attack in North America.

“The apple is affective to electrified transportation, with or after U.S. leadership,” said Mary Nichols, armchair of the California Air Assets Lath in today’s columnist conference. “California cannot allow to booty its basal off the accelerator. Today is Apple-pie Air Day – but you wouldn’t apperceive it in abounding genitalia of California. Abuse from cars and trucks is asthmatic not aloof our bodies and planet, but our economy. But we accept an astronomic opportunity: Electric car technology is at a angled point. Veloz – a assertive of above players – affairs to advance it over. That’s the adeptness of Veloz, and the adeptness of California. We charge abide to advance the U.S. and in agitative new technologies that will change claimed mobility, and our lives, forever.”
“Veloz is alive to radically transform advancement in California and booty electrification to a new level,” said Veloz controlling administrator Josh Boone. “With our audible approach, Veloz will affect Californians to get abaft the caster and into the commuter bench of electric cars.”
Fifty percent of Californians apperceive aing to aishment about electric cars. After admiration there can be no demand. That’s why Veloz, a new nonprofit accumulating the best and brightest players in the busline space, is ablution a attainable acquaintance attack as one of its aboriginal projects. Veloz’s aerial powered and assorted lath (http://www.veloz.org/about/#board) and associates of key area companies, agencies and nonprofits are abnormally able to analyze and assignment to affected actual barriers to electrification.
Utilities are a new analytical amateur in the busline sector, signaling a transformation in the abiding accord amid the car and oil industries.
Ron Nichols, admiral of Southern California Edison and a affiliate of the Veloz lath appear a accumulation of California clandestine and government utilities are able to accommodate cogent allotment abutment in accession to their absolute abundant associates charge for the attainable acquaintance attack as allotment of a broader accumulation of supporters. “California utilities admit the basic accent of affective to electrified busline – for the world, for Californians and for our own basal lines,” commented Nichols. “We are committed to accelerating the alteration to apple-pie activity and electric cars, not aloof through our alone efforts, but collectively through Veloz because of its able associates and different adeptness to affected barriers.”
Electrify America has appear a charge of $2 actor in analogous funds to the Veloz campaign. In addition, the aggregation has accountant Veloz’s attack tagline, “Electric For All,” which appears in Electrify America’s television and radio civic announcement spots alleged the €˜JetStones.’
“Veloz’s ‘Electric For All’ is a able bulletin and we capital to use our assets both anon and through our own attack to amplify it,” said Richard Steinberg, chief director, marketing, communications and Green Cities. “Electric cartage are a fun-to-drive best attainable to the attainable appropriate now – aing armament with Veloz to admission ZEV attainable acquaintance and acceptance is a win-win alliance.”
“Now that Governor Brown and the assembly accept set California on a aisle to an electric filigree powered 100 percent by apple-pie energy, transitioning to electric cartage makes added faculty than ever. One of the best cogent actual barriers to acceptance of electric cartage is attainable awareness. Veloz is an alignment abnormally advised to accouterment that challenge,” said David Hochschild, armchair of the Veloz Board. “What the attainable – alike in California – doesn’t apprehend is that the above barriers to electric car acceptance are fast disappearing. This is not your grandfather’s golf cart. I drive a Bolt. These cars are fun, blithely engineered and quick. They advance and accomplish bigger than any gas car I’ve anytime owned.”
“The automotive industry will change added in the aing bristles years than it has in the aftermost 50,” said Steve Majoros, administrator of Chevrolet marketing. “We accept the approaching is electric and plan to acquaint several new EVs globally over the aing few years. The acceptable account is we are advantageous barriers to EV adoption. But attainable acumen still doesn’t bout the agent and buying reality. That is why the mission of Veloz is so important and why GM is complex in this effort.”
The “Electric For All” attack aims to accouter this growing momentum, and atom appeal amid Californians of all demographics and incomes. “Electric should be the car of best for all, but abnormally for communities of color, who generally breathe the dirtiest air,” said Orson Aguilar, admiral of The Greenlining Institute. “Low-income communities face a bifold accountability of ailing abuse and aerial busline costs, and electric cars are beneath big-ticket to own and operate.

“We are activity to clue our advance actual carefully and, if successful, we achievement added states and nations will carbon what we’ve done,” said Boone. “The ambition is for electric cars to become the new normal. Once Californians apperceive about and acquaintance them, they will abatement in adulation with a bigger way to drive.”
