If the market demands cars with improved fuel efficiency, or electric cars, whatever rollbacks the Trump administration implements on fuel efficiency standards will not matter.
Automakers will be forced to comply with market demands.
Our dollars and decisions drive the market, not Trumps war on science and reason.
Screaming on social media doesn’t help, especially if you go out and buy a gas guzzling SUV afterwards.
Gas prices are rising. The petroleum industry and car manufacturers win if these proposed rules go into effect. In the long run, auto-consumers loose at the gas pump and via continued environmental degradation. But that doesn’t mean we quit and blame Trump.
Buy smart if you care about climate change–and don’t get sucked into the noise, such as the argument about safety as it relates to cars with better fuel efficiency standards. That’s crap.
Oh, and by the way, fuck you EPA. Remember, you make the rules we make the calls.
