Not a lot of room to talk there, skippy. When you wrap yourself in a glass house, you need to be careful when you heave stones around.
Virginia is right on the heels of California when it comes to electric vehicles in the United States. For example:
Virginia's Drive Electric Fall Festival this month.
Virginia's Electric Fleet Legislative Summit this month.
Virginia's Electrics and Espresso Car Meet this month.
Virginia's Drive Electric Day this month.
Virginia's Clean Energy Summit-focuses on wind, solar, EVs, and other "clean" energy solutions (next month).
Virginia's Rocktown Energy Festival next month.
Virginia's Annual Drive Electric Forum (November).
Virginia is a solidly blue state where Obama, Hillary, and Biden all handily won. Your House of Delegates contains transgenders, as well as a self-declared socialist. The Virginia Clean Economy Act mandates the phaseout of fossil fuel power generation by 2045, and by their own admission that will lead to regular power shortages. Dominion IRP states that they can't back up the wind and solar requirement with imported power, because they don't believe that imported power will still be widely available.
So tell me, where's the difference between California and Virginia (except for the weather)?
