How Not to Make a Cleaner Environment

This was slashdotted today, and I can see why: Dirty Secret—Green Cars Automakers Won’t Sell You (Archived Copy)

Not only can’t you buy one, but the government says it’s currently illegal for automakers to sell these green cars outside of the special states. Under terms of the Clean Air Act—in the kind of delicious irony only our government can pull off…

Someone is bound to say that it is the Bush Administration’s fault, and it is, only because they didn’t cut red tape that other already put up. Still this is just wacked, but as it says above, “only our government can pull [it] off…”

  1. Good find.

    I’m often critical of the “hair on fire” hyperbole surrounding carbon emissions but I see nothing at all wrong with people (and the industries they support financially) voluntarily cutting emissions. It’s a shame our government makes that more difficult.

    And, yes, neither major party has the market cornered on bureaucracy. The smart road to hell is paved with good intentions.
