California to Automakers: Please Stop Selling Cars Here

Why should they?
The head of California's air quality board on Thursday called proposed rules that would require automakers to build less-polluting cars and trucks by 2025 a historic move for a cleaner environment.

California Air Resources Board Chairman Mary Nichols said she hopes the rules to require that vehicles emit about 75 percent less smog-producing pollutants will "lead the nation and the world."
We'll lead the nation in decline in auto sales by the time all these rules go into effect. Carmakers won't be able to manufacturer a vehicle at a price anyone will be able to afford.

And we all know that further restrictions on business are just what California's economy needs.

Previous CARB regulations had a way of spreading to other states, and eventually the EPA. Try getting a non-CARB compliant gas can, no matter which state you live in. The jerry cans the military uses are not for sale to the public because, even though they're tough and work great, they're not CARB compliant. You have to go to Canada to buy those.

If they do it like they did last time, the EPA will wait a little while and then try forcing these new CARB regs on the rest of the country.
