WH Revoking CA's Authority To Set Its Emissions Standards

288 Views
Message 21 of 21
The Trump administration will revoke California’s right to set stricter air pollution standards for cars and light trucks on Wednesday, according to two senior administration officials, as part of a larger effort to weaken an Obama-era climate policy curbing greenhouse gas emissions from the nation’s auto fleet.

The move sets up a legal battle between the federal government and the nation’s most populous state, which for decades has exercised authority to put in place more stringent fuel economy standards. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia have vowed to adopt California’s standards if they diverge from the federal government’s, as have several major automakers.

But in July, California reached an agreement with four companies — Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW of North America — under which they pledged to produce fleets averaging nearly 50 mpg by model year 2026. That is one year later than the target set under the Obama administration.

Trump plans on making this announcement while attending fund raisers in L.A. and Silicon Valley.

 

What is wrong with this guy?  He really hates Obama and California that much?

 

I hope the states and D.C. and auto manufacturers fight this and prove to the rest of America and the world how socially responsible they are, because. if not, the U.S. will be left behind and eventually it will be America first and America alone because their antiquated policies will render their products unfit for global use or trade.
