California: City of Petaluma Is First in US to Ban New Gas Stations in Line with UN Agenda 2030

• https://needtoknow.news, The Center Square

City officials argue not building any more gas stations will help reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2030, in line with the United Nations' Agenda 2030 and World Economic Forum's stated goals, which in part advocate for the future of cars and trucks being electric. Last fall, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order to ban the sale of new gas-powered cars in the state by 2035. Berkeley and several cities in California have banned, or are planning to ban, the use of natural gas in new homes and businesses. Electricity in California is already a problem with rolling blackouts.

Petaluma, California, in Sonoma County, located 37 miles north of San Francisco, is the first city in the U.S. to ban the construction of a new gas station.

Petaluma's city council initially implemented a two-year moratorium in early 2019, but it recently unanimously voted to extend the moratorium.

Last fall, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order to ban the sale of new gas-powered cars in the state by 2035. According to Newsom's office, "California Air Resources Board will develop regulations to mandate that 100% of in-state sales of new passenger cars and trucks are zero-emission by 2035, a target which would achieve more than a 35 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and an 80 percent improvement in oxides of nitrogen emissions from cars statewide."

Accepting the ideas that the UN proposes, on a separate idea basis might be okay. But if their acceptance includes the UN on UN basis, it is unconstitutional.
