By Jeff Alson, Former EPA engineer who helped develop the Clean Car Standards, current consultant for EDF The Trump administration is trying to justify its decision to roll back America’s Clean Car Standards — an action that will result in more pollution and greater costs for American families — by claiming that dirtier, more expensive cars […]

Neoliberalism is to blame for stalled climate action 23.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
This article was first published in The Intercept on August 3, 2018 . Published by  rabble.ca  with permission from The Intercept. On Sunday, August 1, the entire New York Times Magazine was composed of just one article on a single subject: the failure to confront the global climate crisis in the 1980s, a time when the science was settled and the politics seemed to align. Written by Nathaniel Rich, this work of history is filled with insider revelations about roads not taken that, on several occasions, made me swear out loud. And lest there be any doubt that the implications of these decisions will be etched in geologic time, Rich's words are punctuated with full-page aerial photographs by George Steinmetz that wrenchingly document the rapid unravelling of planetary systems, from the rushing water where Greenland ice used to be to massive algae blooms in China's third largest lake. The novella-length piece represents the kind of media commitment that the climate crisis has long deserved but almost never ...

Can the EPA Roll Back California's Clean Air Standards? 10.8.2018 American Prospect
(AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes) The Los Angeles skyline on June 24, 2010 Capital & Main  is an award-winning publication that reports from California on economic, political and social issues. The American Prospect is co-publishing this piece. When officials within the Trump administration, on August 2, proposed scaling back Obama-era fuel-economy standards and revoking California’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from tailpipes, they were betting on the chance that courts can’t tell the difference between a law against gas guzzlers and one against carbon belchers. Low-mileage cars and low-emissions cars are often one and the same, they may have reasoned. If you’re requiring a car to emit less carbon dioxide, you’re also asking that it burn less fuel. That part might be mostly true, although there are emissions controls that have nothing to do with gas mileage. But from a legal standpoint, fuel economy and tailpipe emissions take distinctly different routes to regulation. Fuel-economy ...
