Obama’s-EPA Vehicle Fuel Mileage Mandates vs. The American People


-
New CAFÉ News: 3-15-2017:  Trump pumps brakes on Obama-era fuel efficiency standards
“Trump announced he's putting a midterm review of fuel efficiency standards back on track, giving officials another year to study the issue before setting new standards in 2018.
CAFE emissions targets were at the heart of former President Barack Obama’s multi-year strategy to fight climate change. Trump’s willingness to hit the brakes underscores his administration’s aim to roll back environmental rules in order to boost economic growth.”

-
Roanoke Times, 2-23-2017, Pg 8:  EPA asked to withdraw mileage decision that states greenhouse gas emissions standards through 2025 should remain unchanged.

-
Auto Alliance CEO Mitch Bainwol said the EPA’s decision was “riddled with indefensible assumptions, inadequate analysis and a failure to engage with the contrary evidence.”
-
-
This statement is the personification of the Obama-EPA for the past 8-years and their entire concept that “we” have control!
Something about being arrogant, arbitrary and capricious at the epicenter of a centralized and all powerful government.
Many of us have seen this play before!
-
Talk about a disconnect between Goals and Reality!
-
-
-
Clearly the average fuel mileage for combined cars and light trucks is NOT even close to 36.6 MPG (This year 2017 it's more like 27)!  Why is this overstated?  Why would the EPA falsify reality?
If the manufacturers did that the Government would go postal a la VW diesel emissions
 -
Clearly going from 36.6 MPG in 2017 to 54.5 MPG in 2025 is:
A 49% change in 8-years.
From 27 MPG to 55 MPG it's a 104% change in 8-years - Obama Delusions
How was Crooked-Hillary going to make that happen?
We are to be mandated to drive Toyota Prius’ or equivalents
No more real cars, SUVs, cross-over’s, pick-up’s or vans
And don’t sweat the massive increases in accident deaths and injuries.
-
Why wasn’t this highlighted during the past election by Obama, Hillary and their DNC-Pravda Media.  Is it not important for the American People to know what the real Obama Auto plans mean for the American People?
More mushroom treatment – keep them in the dark and feed them lots of heifer-dust!
-
Yet another reason the red-neck-deplorable’s voted for Trump!
Apparently lots of soccer-mom’s did too!

U.S. Sets Higher Fuel Efficiency Standards
DETROIT — The Obama administration issued on Tuesday the final version of new rules that require automakers to nearly double the average fuel economy of new cars and trucks by 2025.
The standards — which mandate an average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon for the 2025 model year
