On the eve of Neil Young's Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert in Atlantic City, he has written an editorial on MPG regulations, saying they are insufficient for the challenges ahead.
From Why MPG Goals Are Flawed | huffingtonpost.com:
We must move away from high carbon fossil fuels now and we need laws that encourage and reward American ingenuity to do that.
The government must step away from the cozy relationships with oil producing companies and start to see the future of America is low carbon fuels and machines to use them. Our government is not addressing the needs of our planet by simply mandating that we use less gasoline.
It is clear that we are not going to be able to survive a constant barrage of "Sandy"-like global warming super storms. By the time we finish rebuilding from one there will be another and another. We need to address the cause with reasonable laws that encourage change and responsibility.
