Newsmax TV host Carl Higbie: The California clean air regulators vote to ban the sales of all new gas cars by 2035. this is going to make the largest market of auto buyers in the country unavailable to manufacturers California buys and consumes over 10 percent of America’s cars insane joining us now former senior senate environmental and public works committee founder of climatedepot.com and author of the Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change and Green Fraud, Mark Morano. Sir appreciate you being here today. This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. Does it make any modicum of sense any lens you look at it through?
Marc Morano: Well it does for one thing, this is the planned rationing of vehicles. The planned rationing of American cars. That’s the only way this plan makes sense because Gov. Gavin Newson himself knows this is not a realistic expectation to ban the sale of gas-powered and diesel cars. It’s not going to happen, it it can’t happen and if it does happen the only the result is going to be shortages of cars, a completely altered used car market — where everyone’s scrambling for gas-powered used cars. We’re going to find a situation what Gavin Newsom’s doing this is be this is not by democracy in California this is by executive order and then an unelected the bureaucratic board called the (California Air Resources Board) CARB board in California has issued these edicts from high from the morass of the bureaucracy. So if you’re looking at this you can look to Cuba to find out what it’s like to have a raging used car market because that’s what we’re looking at here.
And you can look to East Germany. East Germany had their famed Trabant car, where people would get on waiting lists for years to get it and that’s what we’re faced with here when the government is going to mandate you can only buy a new electric cars. This makes no sense. The amount of mining necessary and the ramping up EV sales — even in California it’s less than 15% of cars sold currently are electric car sales.
They have energy shortages food shortages, now they want vehicle shortages
Morano: “Here’s the thing, we can say ‘Oh these are a bunch of nuts in California, they deserve it. Let it happen.’ But as you mentioned at the opening ten percent of all cars are bought in California and 12 other states are set to follow on this regulation. As California goes so go as a nation. But it’s not just a California issue.
An Australian bank is announcing it’s not going to give financing for loans for anyone buying a gas-powered car. The World Bank has now announced it wants to set a timetable to stop the funding for — even at automaker level for gas-powered cars. The powers that be, the corporate world, the bankers, the governments, academia — they’ve decided that gas-powered cars are over and they’re putting all the forces into play to end it without our say in it,
The real problem here is they’re not giving people a choice. They’re telling you that you must buy this and we’re killing the gas-powered cars regulatorily without a vote,
My new book, The Great Reset details how this is coming from the World Economic Forum, from the EU, from the international banking industry, from corporate America — they’re making decisions and they’re imposing it upon us.
Who could have seen that one coming…?

President Joe Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) restored California’s Clean Air Act waiver in March, which gave the state legal authority to set its strict vehicle emissions standards, according to a press release. The Trump administration formally revoked the waiver in September 2019, stating that California did not need specific emissions standards as the environmental problems caused by emissions were not unique to the state.
“During the Trump administration, we tried to codify and articulate that California did not have the authority to set greenhouse gas standards,” former EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “I don’t think Congress gave that authority to California, specifically to set their own standards for greenhouse gases.”
Furthermore, 17 Republican attorneys general filed a lawsuit in May against the EPA after it reinstated California’s waiver, according to legal filings.
“This leaves California with a slice of its sovereign authority that Congress withdraws from every other state,” West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey told the DCNF about the EPA’s ruling. “The EPA cannot selectively waive the Act’s preemption for California alone because that favoritism violates the states’ equal sovereignty.”
