Ting claims that almost el 40% of greenhouse gas emissions in California are already caused by combustion vehicles, and in 2040 these emissions could be 80% more than they were in 1990. “We are at a turning point where we have to address the emissions that cause climate change” – he said. Governor Brown, for his Part of it said that by 2025 he wants there to be 1.5 million cars 0 emissions on California’s roads.

Ambitious target for 2040
