I spent most of a 3-day weekend driving to, around, and back from Los Angeles. It would be virtually impossible to get around the place without a car. That’s why Los Angeles will die if the envirofascist moonbats running the county get their way. Can you imagine a Los Angeles with no gas stations? Social engineers can. It’s part of their sustainability plan.
If carried out, the list of 159 action items included in the plan could dramatically transform LA’s landscape in the coming decades. County officials call the scheme to phase out fossil fuels the “nation’s most ambitious” regional proposal.
Modern economies at every level — including the local level — rely heavily on fossil fuels to function. Jacobins have decided that these precious fuels will have no place in America’s second largest city in the near future. Because global warming.
No sane person thinks that the global climate is perceptibly influenced by whether people in Los Angeles drive or try to get around on bicycles like Cuban peasants. But sanity has nothing to do with authoritarian virtue signaling.
