What a load of horse puckey.

You have had cars and industry for decades. You have never seen a day of air pollution as bad as Beijing and for the lengths of time it has had...and some other places. Not even close.

Lying scam. Fearmongering.

Carbon taxes. Taking some of my money to clean those places. Fckn theives. All libs and lefties need to die from choking on their own verbal diarrhea.

Steel frames, like they made in the 50s thru 70s.
They are much lighter today and 40 thousand people die in auto accidents each year in the United States. You could literally save 20+ thousand lives a year.

Your welcome!

You are literally an idiot.

You’re actually referencing the “good old days” days before airbags, seatbelt & drunk driving laws.

So many lives saved!

You cannot point to ANY study that says engineered aluminum is a “less safe” material than steel, furthermore, and I seriously doubt you could afford one of the few cars that actually uses an aluminum frame.

But please, do continue to make as ass of yourself, it’s pretty amusing ;)

Do you really believe yourself?

It’s little wonder you get clueless, nuts, and spam under all of your comments.
Except, of course, when you go back in and give “yourself”, positive comments.

Obama administration, automakers were required to reach a fleetwide average fuel economy for all cars and light trucks of 51.4 miles per gallon by 2025

which would benefit who

The Trump administration’s proposal instead freezes that figure at its 2020 level of 36.9 miles per gallon

which would benefit who

Imagine the audacity of setting a goal that a car or light truck get 51 miles per gallon

is that progress

yet Trump is just happy with the status quo

or going flatline

Miles per gallon have been steadily going up but Trump what's to go flatline

Democrats come in and clean up the horrible mess that Republicans leave our country in...our country is then safe, until the morons vote criminal fool, Republicans back into office. Naive and silly voters do our country a lot of damage by not understanding that Republicans are just pure evil.
