Are the automakers bluffing when they say they can’t hit California’s new emissions targets? If so, the Union of Concerned Scientists is calling their bluff. Yesterday the UCS unveiled a minivan design that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 40 percent while saving consumers money and keeping safety and performance intact.

    Might say to the automakers, “We’ve already seen this episode. It ran 30 some years ago.” At the time when reducing carbon monoxide became a priority the automakers complained the regulations were too restrictive and difficult to meet, especially in California. Well, they continued to be profitable and “brown cloud” polution improved.

    Kind of interesting how corporations spend so much money trying to preserve the status quo when they could be spending that money to lead the way with something new.
