Tell EPA and DOT to Protect Clean Car Standards
The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
We need your help to oppose the Trump administration and auto industry’s plan to gut the Obama clean car rules. These standards are the biggest single step any nation has taken to curb global warming and oil use. Unless Trump succeeds in rolling them back, they will require a 2025 fleet of new vehicles averaging about 36 miles per gallon in real world driving and save 12 billion barrels of oil, $1 trillion at the gas pump and will cut 6 billion tons of CO2, the main climate pollutant.
The EPA and DOT are accepting comments from the public until October 26, 2018. Please submit the following comment by filling out the form below and clicking sign up.
“I strongly oppose rolling back our nation’s clean car standards. They represent the biggest single step we can take to cut our use of oil and production of CO2. The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation set strong clean car standards in 2012 to ensure that every year through 2025 new cars would use less oil and emit less pollution. These Clean Car Standards should remain in place!
Smart policies like Clean Car Standards drive automakers to safely accelerate technological innovation. That innovation supports American manufacturing jobs and helps our economy thrive.
Rolling back these standards moves America in the wrong direction. Weaker standards will force consumers to pump 500,000 more barrels of oil per day, result in more pollution that harms public health and our climate. Weaker standards will undermine our auto industry’s technological leadership and competitiveness. The auto industry has proven it can make safe, affordable and more efficient vehicles.”
