The Trump Administration’s latest rollback on California's clean car standards is an attack on our public health. This move goes against logic, public opinion, and basic science -- and even the majority of auto industry dealers oppose it.
Clean car standards, also known as fuel efficiency standards, are environmental safeguards at the heart of efforts to combat our climate crisis . These protections would nearly double the fuel efficiency of automobiles and drastically reduce carbon pollution from cars and trucks. Rolling them back is a dangerous move and hurts our clean air. California lawmakers should be allowed to chart our own bold course on environmental protections and climate action.
We must raise our voices and put a stop against Trump's outrageous plan.
