Default China announcing plans to end sales of gasoline cars

This is why China does not need to FIGHT the U.S. militarily to defeat us. It will become the world power by crippling the U.S economically. no shots fired.
Unless of course the U.S. makes up an excuse to Attack China becasue it's "dealing drugs" or "inhuman to some minority" or "harboring terrorist" or is "a threat to democracies in the region".
then set ups a interim gov't that goes back to producing gasoline cars to maintain the petro-dollar and Oil company profits. those wells in Alaska, the fraking, the deep sea rigs and oil refineries have got to be kept running right?

China is joining France and Britain in announcing plans to end sales of gasoline and diesel cars.

China's industry ministry is developing a timetable to end production and sale of traditional fuel cars and will promote development of electric technology, state media on Sunday cited a Cabinet official as saying.
The reports gave no possible target date, but Beijing is stepping up pressure on automakers to accelerate development of electrics.
China is the biggest auto market by number of vehicles sold, giving any policy changes outsize importance for the global industry.
A deputy industry minister, Xin Guobin, said at an auto industry forum on Saturday his ministry has begun "research on formulating a timetable to stop production and sales of traditional energy vehicles," according to the Xinhua News Agency and the Communist Party newspaper People's Daily.
France and Britain announced in July they will stop sales of gasoline and diesel automobiles by 2040 as part of efforts to reduce pollution and carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.
Communist leaders also want to curb China's growing appetite for imported oil and see electric cars as a promising industry in which their country can take an early lead.
China passed the United States last year as the biggest electric car market. Sales of electrics and gasoline-electric hybrids rose 50 percent over 2015 to 336,000 vehicles, or 40 percent of global demand. U.S. sales totaled 159,620......
Hope is the dream of the waking man.

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
