dude, you know too much!!!(as well as DBK and fourcams) lol yea, i guess this is what happens when you let politicians think they are smarter than engineers. doesnt it only seem reasonable to have the companies affected by this involved in the creation of a piece of legislation so major, as well as some neutral parties of equal knowledge(I.E. SAE or EPA engineers or something) so that the legislation makes sense in the large scale and when compared to current and potential technologies(bio-mass-gas, hydrogen, hybrides, plug-ins, etc.)? but, instead, they just quickly come up with some sugarcoated legislation that makes it appear as though they are doing something about some "major" problem. politics, gotta love it.
