Quote of the Day

"A 2002 National Research Council study showed that 1,300 to 2,600 more Americans were killed on the roads in 1993, a representative year, because cars had been made lighter in pursuit of fuel economy. If a crib had resulted in even one death, the product would be banned.

Ironically, the same politicians who want to raise CAFE standards to reduce gasoline consumption want to discourage price increases (the House just passed Rep. Bart Stupak’s (D-MI) price gouging act)—which would provide a bigger incentive for consumers to cut back than cumbersome CAFE regulations."

~Diana Furchtgott-Roth, in "This CAFÉ is Served Without Dessert"

CAFE demonstrates that there is more than one way to trade blood for oil.
