Trump EPA to Roll Back Back Obama-Era Gas Mileage Standards
03 August, 2018, 06:57 | Author: Tara Reeves
- The Trump administration is proposing to roll back Obama-era mileage standards that were created to make cars more fuel efficient and reduce pollution and California Democrats are vowing to fight back.
But the EPA's standards refer to testing under laboratory conditions, not the mileage we get when driving our cars on the road.
Environmental groups in ME, which is among the states that adopted California's tougher emissions requirements for new cars, and around the country quickly denounced the widely anticipated move. President Trump should be commended for standing up for American consumers by reducing the regulatory burden placed unnecessarily on automakers.
While the new standard is significantly lower than Obama's 2025 target of 54 miles per gallon, the difference is expected to have a minimal impact on climate. The fuel-efficiency rules, which were key to former President Barack Obama's efforts to fight climate change, require auto makers to cut emissions enough. "It's a boon for big oil that ordinary Americans will pay for with their health and their wallets". "At first glance, this proposal completely misrepresents costs and savings". Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger pointed out that it was Ronald Reagan who sought out California's right to regulate emissions.
Automakers, represented by the Auto Alliance and Global Automakers, said they support "substantive negotiations" about fuel efficiency standards.
The administration also contends that hiking USA oil consumption by 2 to 3 percent over forecast levels would have a minimal impact on the environment, boosting global average temperature by just "3/1000th of a degree Celsius by 2100".
