The Fallacy of Pricing

So Obama wants to allow individual states to set their own rules on emissions requirements, forcing auto-manufacturers to either make everyone's cars more expensive by making all their cars meet the most stringent standards, or make everyone's cars more expensive by putting out special versions of each car for each state.

I have a much better idea. If CA wants to be more restrictive than other states, stop selling them cars.


It's high time we did away with this foolishness and just called a spade a spade. These states don't want to "save the environment", the people pushing this legislation want cars to go away. They think that somehow they can wave a magic wand and light rail and busses will be come the transportation mode of choice for everyone. Or better yet. Walk.

Frankly, I've had it with these flat earth environmentalists. If they want to live in a cave, so be it. I, for one, would rather be able to afford a car and the gas it takes to drive into work.
