That's what I don't get. This is the *government* of California suing car manufacturers?
If they win, it means *what?* - no new cars sold? An 'enviromental' tax on new cars?
Wouldn't it just be simpler to tax Humvees to the hilt, or even increase gas tax to encourage fuel efficient cars? Or would that be electoral
suicide, and this makes for a pain-free way for the politicians to 'do something' - even if it doesn't achieve anything.
Surely legislation would be faster and more effective than litigation if it was the government doing this thing.
I still don't get it.
