The California Air Resources Board or CARB, according to the Washington Times, is threatening to require all cars and light trucks sold in California after 2012 to feature metallic reflective window glazing (i.e. tints) to keep interiors cool and thus use less air condition.

No, I am NOT JOKING! There so many reasons why this is wrong on so many different levels, OTHER THAN just more Government intrustion into your lives, such as:

The problem is that the new windows would reflect radio waves, thus highly compromising the use of GPS units, garage-door openers, laptop computers, satellite radio systems, parolee ankle bracelets, wireless medical equipment and cell phones.The problem is that the new windows would reflect radio waves, thus highly compromising the use of GPS units, garage-door openers, laptop computers, satellite radio systems, parolee ankle bracelets, wireless medical equipment and cell phones.

The new windows would add about $250 to the cost of each vehicle. Cars with sunroofs, and perhaps convertibles, probably would not comply and thus could effectively be outlawed. Drivers trapped in their cars after accidents couldn't call 911.The new windows would add about $250 to the cost of each vehicle.

Liberals fail to see the broad picture and just think Government is the solution to all - affectively killing the free market. Hmm, perhaps the Obama Administration can call these "saved jobs" since there is no way to justify that to begin with.
