Illinois becomes 1st Midwestern state to pass a law to phase out fossil fuels​

At a time when the Midwest is being battered by more severe storms due to climate change, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a landmark law this month that will transition the state to 100 percent clean energy by 2045, with benchmarks along the way.

While the effort has largely escaped national media attention, it is especially noteworthy for three reasons: Illinois is the first state in the coal-heavy Midwest to commit to eliminating carbon emissions; the plan received some Republican support; and it includes programs to ensure economic and racial equity.

“What we’ve now done is made it clear that [fossil fuels] are not in Illinois’s future,” Jack Darin, director of the Illinois chapter of the Sierra Club, told Yahoo News.


Well, the entire state of Illinois will now live like the Amish?

Lol

Want to bet the rich white leftists in that commie state won't be giving up their cars, or air conditioners, or anything that has iron or steel in their buildings or homes?

Want to bet that?

Great! That's more coal, oil, and gas for Wisconsin, Missouri, and Michigan. :banana:

Its interesting how the liberal state government is basically dictating the pace and progress of technological advances.

The Illinoisites are still going to have to get around. Maybe Toyota or someone should offer new models with established technology like Charlton Heston's ride in Ben Hur for the market?

Pretty dumb move if you ask me. Hope they have horses cause I doubt anyone can afford an electric car. Good luck to the citizens.

I wonder how those citizens like that law. I also wonder if they will vote the idiot Governor they elected out. Guess we shall see. LOL

BTW, what happened to the 12 year time limit that Cortez, the Democrat Party's Titular Leader set a couple of years ago? Are the libs already reneging?

They're ramping up the great reset by 2030. They have all these big plans but they'll ultimately get smacked down at the end.

If everyone has an electric car, will they be charging those or using their computers, refrigerators and other electric use items? Solar and Wind cant do everything, so they will have to make choices..

Progs talked about buggy whips as technology advanced in past years. Buggy whips may come back.

I can assure you, the rich white leftists will have all of their amenities.

It will be complete chaos for everyone else.

Marxism is Feudalism.

The wealthy and royally screwed. Middle class eliminated. Jobs replaced by AI.

It is both nauseating and infuriating when politicians make commitments that cannot be met until long after they are dead.

Were they honest, they would proclaim the goal, and state what THEY WILL DO to advance toward that goal, leaving the future up to those who are in control at that time.

Green technology like chariots will create millions of Green, Shovel Ready Jobs. All of that horse and donkey poo doesn't sweep itself up.
