Last week I read an article which asked the question: Why aren’t we seeing any Chevy Volts yet? This car promises to be the ‘green’-est mass production vehicle to date, but there is nary a one on the road. Here’s the reason: The EPA–yes, the same organization forcing a pseudo-scientific anti-corporate agenda down your throats through excessive regulation–is too incompetent and bureaucratic to use their own (federally-mandated) EPA fuel-efficiency labeling system. Says the article:
It’s illegal to sell new cars in the United States without an EPA fuel economy label — and the government still hasn’t figured out how to measure the Volt’s fuel economy. That means no fuel economy label and that means GM dealers still can’t start selling the cars.
The fact that the volt is so green is the one reason it can’t get through the environmental regulatory process and start “saving the environment” one harmless CO2 particle at a time.
