I wish DC would just ignore California. California is like that annoying wanna-be revolutionist kid in a high school class, that everyone just ignores and hopes that he drops out.

DC has the same elitist "think they know what's best for everyone" crowd. It's probably what I hate most about living here. Traffic and cost of living are right towards the top, too. We should all just have a revolution and move to the middle of the country and make large carbon foot prints.

It's disheartening to hear the state talking about this at a time when the budget is in such disarray that they are considering sending out IOU's in lieu of state tax refunds.

Dirt!

So every light passenger car will need to be a hybrid by 2016 or use a motorcycle engine.
If they did a better job enforcing the current laws air quality wouldn't be this bad. It's all those POS cars burning oil, even new cars burn oil just to run regularly. Like the 350Z, the RX8, and some of the Infinities. Those can go to hell especially the Wankel, you shouldn't have to redline your engine when you shut it off to avoid gas flooding.
At ,least the the V8 camaro is safe from that being over 3750 pounds. I'd be interested to see a 3750 pound gas powered car that gets 43.7 mpg going freeway speeds.

Car emissions are not the problem.

It is the chemical industry that is doing all the harm.

So does anyone have any idea on how to disconnect California.

Lex Luthor had a winner of an idea.
