    If you think black is a hot color for a car, you're not alone. The California Air Resources Board thinks the same thing. And that's a problem.

    The CARB believes the air conditioning systems in black cars work harder and waste more energy than the ones in lighter colored cars.

    It also wants the car companies to come up with new, more energy efficent paints.

    But they haven't been able to come up with a new black paint.

    The best the carmakers can do, so far, looks like "mud-puddle brown."

    Next are convertibles and sunroofs.

    Actually, I'm surprised they even allow black cars. I mean...after all, black is racist.

    I'm thinking cars in San Diego should be brown (for their proximity to Mexico), Los Angeles should be an off white (blond), and San Francisco...well, it's obvious...pink.

    Yes. I know.

    I'm going to hell for that.

    You guys do realize we are talking about the people who think global warming is going to cause the next Ice Age.

    They dont really care about the environment. its all about controlling people.

    Its getting pretty pathetic in CA. Seems they are trying to take away any right that they possibly can. Its pretty pathetic when you can't even put your cell phone to your ear while your driving. Now their gunning for black cars. Come On!! If this goes then basically the gov can out law any thing in the name of saving the environment.

    Why do they assume people who drive black cars use more energy? I drive a black car, and I hardly ever use my air conditioner.

    What about the fucks who ride around with their sunroof open on a hot day AND blast the A/C to keep cool?
