EPA denies California's request for tighter auto emissions to reduce greenhouse gases also upsets Kulongoski's plan and threatens lawsuit


Ashland daily tidings --


Governor Ted "tax-and-gouge-me" Kulongoski is threatening lawsuits after the US Environmental Protection Agency's decision to reject California tailpipe restrictions that Oregon has adopted.

"Today's decision by the EPA is very disappointing for Oregon and our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming," Kulongoski said.

Kulongoski continued by saying "does not diminish my commitment to combat climate change and I will move forward with any legal or administrative means necessary to make sure Oregon can set its own tailpipe emission standards."

10 other states have adopted California standards to reduce emissions.

have you noticed that more and more issues that Oregon is involved with has been part of the "tri-state" conglomeration of Oregon, Washington and California?

Additionally, as Lars Larson has pointed out with several interviews with representatives of the EPA that the figures do not back up Kulongoski's claim that Oregon needs special regulations for tailpipe emissions.

The article claims that the emissions standards can be met with "off-the-shelf" parts added to the vehicles.

Imagine if the EPA had approved the special California emission standards, where would it stop? Would Oregon have its own standards that differ from California's, which differ from Washington state, which differs from Nevada, which differs from...

It would bankrupt the automotive manufacturers just trying to keep up with all the "special" standards.

Lefties/Democrats need to get their house in order.

Last Thursday I received this press release from the Leftie "Oregon News Service". This partisan media group points out that the Boardman power plant is the "largest single stationary source of global warming and air pollution in the state".

Since the Left/Democrats have identified the largest single source of pollution in the state, maybe we can simply close it down and go about our business. No?

You mean the Lefties want to micromanage further? Unbelievable. They are all about freedom. Perhaps not economic freedom, but go ahead and smoke if you got 'em. Er, not cigarettes...you know, the gange. Gange is cool, tobacco will kill you. And you can spout meaningless poetry. Just don't advocate for personal responsibility and personal choice, okay?

Hmm. I got cranky there.

Merry Christmas.

The automobile industry is already in the toilet. They show no concern for environmental issues when they produce larger, gas guzzling, luxury cars. The next step to keep themselves flush will be to close down their US factories and send all the businees to Mexico. Hersheys Chocolate already has made this move. I'm not buying their product anymore.
