California. “Whether it’s the beautiful sun-kissed beaches and parks, or the long roads and mountains, the Golden State is sure to amaze you.” That’s usually how the state is promoted to the rest of the country for tourism (and the world for that matter.)

California is also home to one of the most strictest laws in the United States—be it the COVID lockdown, driving under the influence, speeding and reckless driving or gun usage.

In late August, California announced it would ban the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035. However, a week later, the state asked its residents to stop charging their electric vehicles (EVs) to conserve energy amid a grueling heatwave. So, given such a scenario more than a decade later, are all Californians meant to pause mass transportation?

This new rule, which Washington and Massachusetts also plan to follow under the guidelines enacted by The California Air Resources Board, might reduce U.S. sovereignty due to increased reliance on China, which has the largest market for the resources necessary to build EVs in the first place.
