Governor Phil Murphy is introducing an ambitious plan in New Jersey. Echoing California’s green policies, Murphy seeks to ban new gas-powered car sales by 2035, ushering in an era of electric vehicles. Critics are worried though. They cite increased electricity bills, potential job losses, and an increase in vehicle costs for average consumers as significant concerns. Further, critics point out the substantial carbon footprint that comes with the production of electric vehicles due to the vast amounts of mined and refined minerals required. The impact of these large-scale changes on New Jersey’s economy and environment is a major point of discussion. In addition to this, Murphy recently signed a bill offering major tax incentives to a foreign green energy company planning to construct an offshore wind farm near Atlantic City, adding another layer to the debate.
