Talking Wyoming: ICE Only By 2035

Wyoming wants to phase out sales of new EVs by 2035
It's a symbolic gesture aimed at states like California.
https://www.engadget.com/wyoming-wan...200704042.html
Quote:
While jurisdictions like California and New York move toward banning the sale of new gasoline-powered cars, one US state wants to go in the opposite direction. Wyoming’s legislature is considering a resolution that calls for a phaseout of new electric vehicle sales by 2035. Introduced on Friday, Senate Joint Resolution 4 has support from members of the state’s House of Representatives and Senate.

In the proposed resolution, a group of lawmakers led by Senator Jim Anderson says Wyoming’s “proud and valued” oil and gas industry has created “countless” jobs and contributed revenue to the state’s coffers. They add that a lack of charging infrastructure within Wyoming would make the widespread use of EVs “impracticable” and that the state would need to build “massive amounts of new power generation” to “sustain the misadventure of electric vehicles.”

SJ4 calls for residents and businesses to limit the sale and purchase of EVs voluntarily, with the goal of phasing them out entirely by 2035. If passed, the resolution would be entirely symbolic. In fact, it’s more about sending a message to EV advocates than banning the vehicles altogether. To that point, the final section of SJ4 calls for Wyoming’s Secretary of State to send President Biden and California Governor Gavin Newsom copies of the resolution.

“One might even say tongue-in-cheek, but obviously it’s a very serious issue that deserves some public discussion,” Senator Boner, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, told the Cowboy State Daily. “I’m interested in making sure that the solutions that some folks want to the so-called climate crisis are actually practical in real life. I just don’t appreciate when other states try to force technology that isn’t ready,”*

While the resolution has the markings of a political stunt, it does allude to genuine economic anxiety. Wyoming produced 85.43 million barrels of oil in 2021, making it the country’s eighth-largest crude oil producer that year. The state’s Carbon County is also home to one of the largest wind farms in the US. Something that’s not talked about enough when it comes to climate change is how the world transitions to a zero-emissions economy in an equitable way. People in many rural US states are rightfully mistrustful of so-called green technologies because they haven’t benefited from more recent technological shifts as much as their urban counterparts. Take the advent of the internet, for instance. In 2018, Microsoft found that many rural communities don’t have access to broadband internet. That’s something that has contributed to diminishing economic opportunities in those places.

Just saw this myself. Well, they were interesting while they lasted. Quick, if not terribly engaging or fun.

Stunts like this, and more importantly the politicians behind them, are going to be what keep ICE around longer. Not a bad thing.

I don't disagree, but it's going to take a few more states besides Wyoming to tip the scale.
Seems like vehicle sales in Wyoming are minuscule.
So, OK, they can ban EVs if they want to since it won't impact total U.S. vehicle sales either way.

EDIT: https://www.autosinnovate.org/resources/insights/wy --> 26.2K sold in 2018, I believe Wyoming ranks last in terms of car sales in the U.S.

I am completely against this.
If people want to buy an EV that should not be legislated away. This is crap.

well that is fair. They laugh at NY and California all the time.... so what goes around...

what you have to worry about is while all the liberal states try to out DERP each other,
Conservative states tend to play this game too. I hope more Conservative states do not pile onto this stupid idea that the government gets to choose what you drive.

we may not agree on much, dwf137, and that is perfectly fine man. But are both at the Nuclear table for sure.

I think there's more common ground than might be broadcast over short snippets on this site... interwebz is great for highlighting differences.

Nuclear needs more support. Unfortunate that it has a nasty history and people can't seem to move past that. Georgia moving forward with one. Would love to see more.

Lets not forget the Additional 43 Coal Energy plants China is adding for 2023. If they continue to build more, I doubt even 30% (or more) of the US pop being in a Hybrid or EV will make much of a difference as far as Carbon count.
