California, CARB, Votes On 15% Clean Car Mandate By 2025 via @GreenCarReports

Define "close to zero." I'll bet CARB hasn't. 75 percent and 50 percent lower than what? Todays allowed emissions? Or the allowed emissions when the reg takes effect in 2018? What happens at the end of the year if the 15% sales target isn't reached? Auto dealers get penalized? The last few folks to buy a new car can't get what they want, they have to buy an EV because that's all the dealer is allowed to sell to make his target? Even nut-job Californians won't be able to support this. Then again, at the rate businesses are leaving CA, people will eventually do the same, and new car sales there are going to plummet as a result... Nah, still not achievable.
