    Ah the famous Clean Air act Carbon Regulation end around.

    The Clean Air act is fine the way it is, where it concentrates on NOx SOx and ROx (particulates) as well as VOC's and other toxics/environmental hazards.

    If people want to regulate carbon go ahead, just have the balls to legislate it as a stand alone, and let people see the consequences of said actions.

    What about windmill addiction? What about Al Gore addiction? What about Obama addiction?

    Far more harmful... in my opinion.

    To reduce our dependence on foreign oil we need t to expand our drilling efforts. Fact is oil is the life blood of this country. I hear talk about wind, solar and other alternatives but what people fail to realize none of these are viable to run our cars or our homes. It's one thing to have the technology and another thing to distribute it to all Americans.

    Lonestar logic, the amendment seeks to gut the clean air/emissions levels of new cars sold here -- provisions that increase the efficiency of those cars and thereby reduce our dependence on oil, foreign or domestic.

    How is opposition to this amendment at all contrary to the move away from fossil fuels?

    We have 3% of the world's oil reserves. We use 25% of the worlds oil. We cannot drill our way out of that.

    The technology exist to change most of our private transportation over to electricity. This technology has been fought, and stymied, by the oil companies for the last two decades.

    Revenge of the EV1: crushing EV1 crushed GM

    Continueing to use petroleum for tranportation is to continue to fund both sides of the terror war, and to continue to prop up people like Chavez.

    Chinese auto makers are already ahead of us on hybrids and EVs, in spite of the fact that both the US and Japan has manufactured very successful EVs in the past two decades, only to see an oil company, Chevron, no doubt with the full support of the industry, shut down production of those vehicles.
