    Non-binding, but still - pretty scary for carbons.

    Well, they voted to suggest that someone else ban the combustion engine, since they have no legislative power over that issue.

    Still, very interesting. Clearly non-combustion powered transport will be come a larger part of the mix as we move forward. Maybe this is more of a symbolic acknowledgment of that fact?

    It won't be long before it's actually cheaper to make and buy a non gas powered vehicle anyways.... Let's just hope we don't kill each other off before then...
