Climate Change Dystopia: Washington State Passes Legislation That Will Ban Gas-Powered Vehicles by 2030



In the year 2006, Al Gore catalyzed the global warming movement with his baseless documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” shocking the world with false claims of an inevitable climate catastrophe that would destroy civilization as we know it.

An Inconvenient Truth: Global Temperatures Are Lower Today Than When Al Gore First Pushed His Global Warming Junk Science

Fast forward 16 years and the hysteria has devolved into the current unhinged ‘climate change movement’ that is working in tandem with the globalist cabal of elites to form their ‘utopian’ vision of a ‘new world order’ – one where the masses will be forced to live in their pods, eat their insects, and if they need to go anywhere – take public transportation, all for the sake of saving the planet.

Only the elite, who have private jets and superyachts will be permitted the luxury of a vehicle of their own if things go according to their plan.  This is how it works in communist countries.

Naturally, you might think to yourself: ‘Hold on a second, I live in America. That won’t happen here – we are a free nation, after all.’

Well not so fast. The elite in this country are taking a hacksaw to the US Constitution. This madness might be here sooner than you think, and unfortunately, for the citizens of Washington State, a cleverly disguised policy was just put in place, laying the groundwork for this hysteria to take over.

The WA legislature, which is controlled by radical progressive leftists, passed a new bill this week that will outlaw the sale, purchase, and registration of all gas vehicles that are model year 2030 or newer, regardless of if they are publicly or privately owned.

In other words, the only vehicles eligible for sale and registration will be all-electric cars. The law also creates an “interagency electric vehicle coordinating council,” which will oversee vehicular regulations for this program going forward.

From the text of SB 5974:

“All publicly owned and privately owned passenger and light duty vehicles of model year 2030 or later that are sold, purchased, or registered in Washington state be electric vehicles.”

The legislation was signed into law by Washington Governor Jay Inslee earlier this week. It will fully go into effect over the next 8 years, with regulations being enforced beginning in 2030.

Inslee described the mindset behind the bill during its signing this week. The progressive Governor reiterated that the measure was climate-focused and will “move us away from the transportation system our grandparents imagined and towards the transportation system our grandchildren dream of.”

What’s lost, or purposefully ignored, by these disconnected elites is the fact that electric vehicles are an expensive luxury that many Americans cannot afford, especially with the skyrocketing inflation and decimated economy following the lockdowns. As of now, the average price of an electric car already sits at a substantial $50,000, and that’s before Biden and the Globalists continue to wreck the global markets and cause prices to skyrocket further.

Can you even imagine the cost by 2030?

Considering the other factors, the measure almost looks like a pipe dream, at best. As of right now,  according to the Yakima Herald, only 1.5% of the vehicles on the road in the state of Washington are electric vehicles, so there’s either going to have to be taxpayer Tesla giveaways, or there are going to be a lot fewer cars on the road.

Looking at the current state of things, it’s likely to end up being the latter.

Republicans in the state Legislature argued a similar point, calling the bill unrealistic while likening it to a massive overreach of government power. However, their voices mattered little to the radical Dems, who reportedly cut the Republicans out of the negotiations over the new measure.

Republican Washington State Sen. Curtis King explained to the Yakima Herald:

“They want to force everybody into an electric vehicle for whatever reason they deem fit. They want to take the choice away from the people because they think government knows more than anybody else.”

If you are sick of the pandemic, just wait until phase two: ‘climate change dystopia’ is set in motion. It’s all coming together under the Klaus Schwab playbook: by 2030, you will own nothing and be happy.

It’s no surprise that the liberal Bastian of Washington state is leading the charge.
