"EPA set to end California’s ability to regulate fuel economy"
"WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is poised to revoke California’s authority to set auto mileage standards, asserting that only the federal government has the power to regulate greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy."

"Conservative and free-market groups have been asked to attend a formal announcement of the rollback set for Wednesday afternoon at Environmental Protection Agency headquarters in Washington."

"Gloria Bergquist, spokeswoman for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, said Tuesday that her group was among those invited to the event featuring EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao."

"The move comes after the Justice Department recently opened an antitrust investigation into a deal between California and four automakers for tougher pollution and related mileage requirements than those sought by President Donald Trump. Trump also has sought to relax Obama-era federal mileage standards nationwide, weakening a key effort by his Democratic predecessor to slow climate change."

Tell that to people it will be truly tough on.

"In 1998, nearly eight of 100 15-year-olds living in the Los Angeles Basin had significant lung deficiencies, according to the USC Children’s Health Study published in March 2015. By 2011, that number dropped to 3.5 out of 100 due to improved air quality.
But much more work needs to be done."

Should you or any of your loved one's suffer as a result of this, should we be like you and make you "feel better", by saying "tough"?

Maybe, just maybe, there are enough Americans that have thought about how Trump's roll backs and refusal to give a damn about the environment that people of all political parties need to remain healthy, so they can retain some semblance of a right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness - Wikipedia

There is a need for balance when anyone's pursuit of life liberty and happiness, conflicts with that of others.

Lots of people free to dump pollutants into the environment, may not care if the same, also works to harm them or their loved ones. Others DO care, because when they say to their children and grandchildren, that they love them, they mean it beyond mere words.

Meh.

The fat fuck can't force the auto makers to retool and make his dream gas-burners.

And he can't force Californians to buy that trash.

He's just waddling for the entertainment of the Nocturnal Dirt People.
