Extreme proposals aren't the answer. A diverse energy policy is, graduated CAFE increases will be helpful. Makers must have time to respond, engineers plan several years in advance. Leaving little or no time to respond with ways to deal with short term increases. Assuming the technology will become available is wishful thinking. Don't punish an industry that's seen enough pain in the past year. Other industries must be willing to provide conservation alternatives also. The lack of an energy policy is no reason to punish the automakers.
