I’ve spoken about this (Global War scores on new cars) in various radio interviews as being an example of the problem we have when we let the executive branch write law. We end up with Obama forcing “Global Warming” garbage down our throats. So, it’s no surprise that for 2013 cars it gets even more intensive.
According to a heavily politicized explanation by the EPA, “for the first time ever, highlight the increased efficiency standards achieved under the Obama Administration that will save families money at the pump starting this year.”
The new sticker will also provide comparable data to compare gasoline-fueled vehicles against all-electric and alternative fuel vehicles–which the EPA calls “next generation”, such as those powered by natural gas…
The new labels will also highlight so-called “greenhouse gas” CO2 emissions and smog emissions. The current label already has an “Environmental Performance” section with a “global warming score” and a “smog score”. The new sticker further highlights the “scores” by integrating them into the main body of the display rather than as an add-on. Like the old sticker, the new sticker announces, “Vehicle emissions are a primary contributor to global warming and smog,” even though global warming has been replaced by “climate change” and the anthropogenic element remains controversial.
