No Loopholes for Clean Car Standards!

2 posts in this topic

We've had 30 years of stagnation when it comes to fuel

economy. Our environment deserves better!

Tell the EPA and Department of Transportation (DOT)

that we need strong clean car standards.

In May, President Obama announced new fuel economy

standards with a goal of 35 miles-per-gallon by 2016.

This change would deliver a lifetime savings of nearly

2 billion barrels of oil and reduce global warming

pollution by almost 900 million tons!

The EPA and DOT are finalizing a proposal for how to

implement these new standards. And that's where we need

your help -- we can't let the loopholes that helped to

create the current environmental predicament continue.

Tell the EPA and DOT that they must not undermine the

new standards with the same kinds of loopholes that

have plagued us for decades. Act now.

Thanks for taking action!

P.S. Past loopholes allowed automakers to reclassify

cars as "light trucks" to decrease fuel economy

requirements and incorporate weight thresholds to allow

gas guzzlers like the Hummer to evade all fuel economy

regulations.

I still miss the Ford Ranchero... Even though I saw one yesterday... They stopped making those after 1979...

All the the Chevy El Caminos from 1978-1987 just... sucked...
