Complain to the legislature


this was my letter: feel free to use it in your petittion.

I do not wish the government or the ARB to pass further regulations on Diesel or Gasoline engines, both on-road and off-road.

It makes no sense that a 1 ton truck used to get 20+ mpg without all the extra emissions controls, now the same truck gets 12-16mpg.

Has there honestly been a 40% reduction in emissions to justify the wanton waste of fuel? I do not want my tax dollars spent monitoring private individuals or businesses. I do not want or see the need for more emissions products to be forced to be installed on/in vehicles for private individuals, businesses or manufacturers by our government. It is hurting our economy.





and check out this joker...

He was one of the "experts" leading the study. Bought his "PhD" online for $1000 ... With that fraud he is still employed by the state at $8,000 a month.:spank:

dirty air

i came to ca to visit and saw all the dirty air on the side walks. I met a retired fireman of 30 years, originally from Iowa, who told me that 30 years ago he could not see the mtn. 10 blocks away until about 10 years ago. glad I did not move here in 68. Retired and traveling. air pollution and trucks and cars are here to stay. only electric cars will solve the problem so us dieselers can drive our rigs (fifth wheel)

I believe it was the fraud related, since the board member did not have the credentials he claimed.

Electric vehicles are not pollution free. That is one of the big lies told about them. The energy must be produced and the electric generation = pollution.(pollution free at the point of source ie the car, but the source is just centralized to the coal, water and nuclear generators, oh don't forget the solar and wind at 5% or less of production.) There is energy loss in transmission, and the batteries when charged are not 100% efficient for energy transfer, and the batteries are only good for 5-7 years then you need to buy thousands of $$$ in new batteries. Electric cars make sense in a small # of applications.

Fact... Its easier for the government to control emissions at a plant.

I'll forward everything to my other friends who own diesels tonight. Sent it to one diesel enthusiast at work already. If any of you guys are following the other thread, maybe we do need to set up a rally - I'm in if it will make our voices be heard and make a difference.

I didn't pay attention - sorry

but I did post this on a couple of other forums and on my facebook...


and here is a Subaru/Rally forums guy's response:

I work for the ARB as a student assistant(different division), but this sh!t is appalling, the amount of regulations that we pass in CA is stupid.
Anyway here's another article about this guy.

http://www.sacbee.com/politics/story/2381292.html

also, the only reason he was demoted was due to the fact he had to have a degree to be in the position. otherwise he would have probably just been suspended.

This is what really gets me,

"At least two of the agency's nine board members have said the issue raises serious concerns about the regulations' legitimacy.

Tuesday, Nichols spokesman Leo Kay said agency staff should have notified the board about the problems with Tran's credentials before the diesel vote. But he said the regulations were warranted even without the conclusions in Tran's study.

Air board officials ordered his study reassessed by a peer review panel, which declared it sound."



Senior board members have issues with the study, the head of the board says it doesn't matter, that they still need the regulations(when in fact the person presenting the info wasn't qualified to present it), so lets give it a peer review, no way in hell a third party independent tester should be involved.
