    Overestimate fueled state's landmark diesel law

    California grossly miscalculated pollution levels in a scientific analysis used to toughen the state's clean-air standards...

    The pollution estimate in question was too high - by 340 percent, according to the California Air Resources Board, the state agency charged with researching and adopting air quality standards. The estimate was a key part in the creation of a regulation adopted by the Air Resources Board in 2007, a rule that forces businesses to cut diesel emissions...

    Nichols was emphatic, though, when asked whether she has concerns about other scientific calculations made by air board scientists.

    "No, no, no, no, no, no, no and no," she said.

    3.4%... ok...
    34%... Say what?...
    340%... political and scientific malpractice.

    All involved should be publicly identified for the frauds they are and grilled by the press.

    Re: Overestimate fueled state's landmark diesel law

    When I was growing up in California many years ago I was every bit as proud to be a Californian as any Texan was to be from that other Lone Star State.

    A Rand study how the state's K-12 school system has fallen from a national leader 30 years ago to its current ranking near the bottom in nearly every objective category.

    And it's the kind of radical warped thinking on the part of the Air Resources Board and those who allow these scumbags to constantly get away with raping the people of their money to fund worthless programs based of bogus nonsense and when they are caught at it, it's like oh well they did it again but that's bureaucracy for, and nothing every changes no one goes to jail for fraud or charged with a damn thing.

    WHEN PEOPLE WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SAY HELL NO IT ENDS HERE. YOU SCUMBAGS ARE GOING TO SUFFER IF NOT IN JAIL THEN IN THE POOR HOUSE BECAUSE IT'S OVER ANS BEING A WACKO WHO MAKES WILD FALSE CLAIMS LIKE AL GORE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FACE THE MUSIC AND PAY THE PRICE.

    More lies being told to push the Green Agenda. Why are so many lies coming to light? Any treehuggers care to take that one on?

    Re: Overestimate fueled state's landmark diesel law

    Part of the first sentence.... "and scientists have spent the past several months revising data and planning a significant weakening of the landmark regulation, The Chronicle has found."

    Hmmm. So they found out they are wrong they are going back to make sure they make it right. The article goes on to explain the miscalculation...

    "The staff of the powerful and widely respected Air Resources Board said the overestimate is largely due to the board calculating emissions before the economy slumped, which halted the use of many of the 150,000 diesel-exhaust-spewing vehicles in California.... The Air Resources Board acknowledges that the new estimates mean that emitters of the pollution would need to make significantly smaller - and in turn less expensive - changes to their vehicles."

    What's the problem?
    and so it goes...

    Doesn't surprise me much. The toadies who are currently running the air pollution in California are drunk with power. My personal beef was that they banned wood fires on Christmas because they could. As as a former LA, I fully appreciate the benefits of air pollution control, but that doesn't excuse going overboard. Clean air can easily be obtained without absurd nonsense.

    Leave corporations unchecked and this happens. So the best way to fix this picture is to leave it up to the people who made the mess? Tell me how to fix that image, without using government.
