54.5 MPG and The Law of Unintended Consequences

This isn't an unintended consequence; they simply don't care if some people have to die for their vision of the future. The entire environmentalist movement is rabidly anti-human, and their most honest adherents are very plain about their desire to see 4+ billion people 'removed' from the planet. This is just small fry compared with their true desires. The enviro-nazis will never be satisfied until they're the only humans left.

Ahh but they do care. They think there are too many people now and anything which reduces the population by any means is acceptable to them.

I just wish those who think we need to reduce the population would show their dedication to THEIR cause and lead by example.

I agree!

Every green-weinie out there should do the world a favor and kill themselves, right now! Do they really think they are "saving the world" with their kindergarten krap?

Where would mankind be without learning how to hunt and cook animals? Or use the land to grow crops to feed so many people around the world?

The old saying is "Physcian, heal thyself". I say "Environmentalist, kill thyself". Environmentalism has killed more humans and animals than most people realize.

Legislators and regulators need to observe a fundamental Golden Rule: Do not implement new laws if you have not considered or cannot control important unintended consequences.

A perfect example is the Obama Administration’s plan to increase new car mileage standards, from the currently legislated requirement of 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016 to 54.5 mpg by 2025, as an average across each automaker’s complete line of cars and light trucks.

Carmakers reluctantly agreed to the new requirements, to avoid even more onerous standards, or different standards in different states. But the deal does nothing to alter the harsh realities...
