California to Sue over Emissions Legislation‏

As this nation faces the fact that pollution and the human affects are becoming a factor that sets a trend for survival knowing the fact that green-house affects are becoming more and more visible has us set into a trance to assume priority over the obvious.

Why?

Environmental challenges are just as important as the issues that are addressed by this nation as a a whole as of now. The following is an article that was received by me on the fact and concern of the affects of cost and the standard of living the the state of California will face due to the concerns of this very important fact of emissions and the toll it takes on the environment.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger, the governor of California, is on Wednesday expected to file a lawsuit against the US government over its failure to grant a waiver that would allow the state to set its own fuel emissions standards,” reports The Financial Times. “The state made the request for a waiver to implement new standards in 2005. But despite promises from the Environmental Protection Agency that its case was being looked at, no decision has yet been made on whether to issue the waiver. Mr Schwarzenegger warned the EPA six months ago that he would sue if one was not issued and the six-month deadline he imposed expired at the beginning of the week.”

In “California Retro,” Patrick J. Michaels, Cato senior fellow in environmental studies, writes: “Will California itself meet its own legally imposed emissions limits? Doubtful, unless there will be some chicanery whereby carbon dioxide is fobbed off on, say, power plants in neighboring states. California would have to reduce its emissions substantially while, thanks to immigration, its population rises rapidly. The entry-level car for entry-level Californians will not be a $30,000 hybrid. While the chi-chi may buy them, they will sell their existing cars to the newcomers. Thanks to California’s climate, those beaters will live long lives in the Golden State.”
