Bush to California: More greenhouse, not less.

Why in dickens would the feds undermine a state government that is trying to help moderate the climate, and to conserve gas during a time of war and high oil prices?
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal officials said Wednesday that new national mileage standards would pre-empt state rules on greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles, a move that takes aim at California's first-in-the-nation limits on such pollution.

State air regulators voted unanimously in September 2004 to approve rules that would cut exhaust from California's cars and light trucks by 25 percent and from larger trucks and sport utility vehicles by 18 percent.

The Bush administration said Wednesday that such regulations were "expressly pre-empted" by the new federal standards.

My name is George W Bush and I am an addict.

Before coming out I would blame America. I used to say "America is addicted to oil, most of it coming from the middle-east ..." but ... when California wanted to approve rules that would cut exhaust from California's cars and light trucks by 25 percent and from larger trucks and sport utility vehicles by 18 percent ... then I realised that it was I who had the addiction and I pre-emptively attacked California because ... well because my name is George W Bush and I am an addict.
