Green Cars or Green Laws, Which Came First?
Trends start in California. We've set the stage for auto air emissions, too. The AQMD here set the tone for the development of catalytic converters.
Now, it appears we're about to do it again, and automakers are complaining. They want the standards set nationally, not by the states, and not, in particular, by one state.
Environmentalists believe the technology already exists to meet even the most aggressive standards. Their new report claims that Californians, and presumably everyone else, would save money.
I'd be happy with lower gas prices. But, it appears that we're still waiting for our famous governor to go green with his Hummer.
