Why fight it?

The availability of bikes that meet CA 2008 standards at no increase in cost (in fact with 1500 dollar discounts) tends to show that the proposed regs are in line with current technology, and quite reasonable. The goal is worthy, so why not just go along?

When the regs are not reasonable, I'll be on the battle lines with the rest of you.

It's called rationing. As a kid I experienced it during WWII.

1) Evading it becomes the principal national pastime

2) Crime gets better organized to efficiently distribute illegal fuel ( better than prohibition!)

3) The richer you are, the less you need to worry about it. The poor go to jail.

4) Tripling fuel economy overall is technically feasible right now without hybrid solutions, which can multiply efficiency by 5.



Rationing sucks.
