Gavin Newsom phasing out gas-powered cars to fight wildfires

California Gov. Gavin Newsom sought Wednesday to fight the state’s disastrous wildfires by phasing out gas-powered cars, signing an executive order requiring all new passenger vehicles sold by 2035 to be emissions-free.

The first-in-the-nation mandate on in-state vehicle sales is expected to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 35% as drivers switch to electric cars, which accounted last year for about 5.3% of vehicle sales in California.

“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” said Mr. Newsom. “For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. Californians shouldn’t have to worry if our cars are giving our kids asthma. Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse – and create more days filled with smoky air.”

Mr. Newsom has blamed rising atmospheric carbon dioxide for stoking years of drought, resulting in 163 million dead trees fueling the devastating

Before Grand Theft Auto’s radio became iconic, it was a fight just to get it in the game

It’s hard to imagine the Grand Theft Auto series without its radio stations. The radio doesn’t just provide a steady stream of music while running a red light or crashing into the nearest postbox. It delivers a flavour of what the world is like without the player around, bombarding the listener with satirical advertisements and bizarre talk radio shows that are always seconds away from going off the rails. They’ve been a key part of Grand Theft Auto since the very first entry in 1997, but they almost didn’t make it into the game at all. In the beginning, GTA’s radio stations were actually the result of an audio team experimenting against their employers’ wishes.

I had this idea of creating almost like a mini-Motown Records here in Dundee

Rivian, other startups face ban from Michigan dealers in direct-sales fight

Michigan auto dealers are trying to block startup electric carmakers such as Rivian Automotive Inc. and Lucid Motors Inc. from following in Tesla Inc.’s footsteps by selling vehicles directly to consumers and servicing them in the state.

A bill introduced in the Michigan Legislature last week would block any manufacturer other than Tesla from selling cars to customers without a dealer as an intermediary and from owning and operating service and repair facilities. It could come up for a vote as soon as Tuesday, according to a Rivian official.

Rivian has maintained a major engineering operation with 750 employees in Plymouth for the last few years, but has been moving some of those positions to California in recent months.

The 11-year-old company has raised about $6 billion from backers including Ford Motor Co. and Amazon.com Inc. It expects to begin production of its first two vehicles — a battery-powered pickup
