The Detroit News: “California’s latest requirement for the auto industry — advanced window glazing to keep vehicles cooler — could prevent drivers from making phone calls, listening to satellite radio or using garage door openers. . . . Advocates say the requirements will reduce the temperature inside vehicles, saving gasoline and cutting greenhouse gases. The regulations take effect in 2012, with a three-year phase-in and requires that by 2014 all vehicles prevent 45 percent of the energy from the sun from entering a vehicle and 60 percent by 2016.”
What’s next? Why not require all cars to be white to reflect the sun’s rays or how about require all car tires to contain used air rather than fresh air because re-using the air is greener?
