So now what the **** are we talking about? How about no more dark colored cars. Yep, that's right. Lets take away color choices for cars now you *************. Cause the AC works .002% harder and makes .000123 more carbon....**** YOU!

California to reduce carbon emissions by... banning black cars?!

The Commie State of California.

I didn't read the article, no need too. Their regulations on OTR trucks are a little shy of ridiculous, and this title runs the same BS. They need to figure out how they are going to pay for **** before they mess with cars.

No, no. They will charge a carbon tax to those that want black cars to help pay into the budget.

LMFAO

yeah it's a little nutty to limit car colors, but lets keep this in perspective. california's smog control programs have reduced smog levels immensely over the last few decades.





hmmm... black car.... black lung... hard choice.

and just think what CARB passes eventually the whole US will adopt. The Feds and O are already looking to CA as a role model for the whole US.

Black people tend to not require the use of A/C, therefore, they emit no threatening emissions.

Funny you mentioned that,where I live,the fucked up greedy government implemented a "carbon tax" a few years ago.

It's one of the biggest scam taxes ever,but it's nowhere near as fucked up as California.

Ah California. Just another reason in the long list of why I would NEVER live there.

Just build some big fans to blow the smog northeast into Las Vegas, no one there would be sober enough to notice or care. Or maybe into the desert east around Phoenix.

I agree.
As far as the graph goes, how much of that is due to cleaner emissions cars in general, and not necessarily the CA emissions? I mean there how many cars were there in LA basin before catalytic converters were even installed on cars or emissions were even a concern? You may be seeing the effect of things being cleaner in general. Not necessarily from the CA standards, but from the car's being cleaner all the way around. The basin will always have smog, the main issue of the problem is where it situated.
