I got an e-mail message from Theodore Hadzi-Antich, attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, about the new set of proposed EPA greenhouse gas regulations for governing heavy and medium duty vehicles, such as trucks, tractor-trailers, RVs, etc., the so-called HDVR regulations.
Here’s a YouTube video sent by Ted which illustrates what all this means.
This is serious because trucking represents the backbone of transport and logistics of America’s freight and interstate commerce. Interfering and meddling with nation’s flow of goods is a good way to slow down commerce and to cause much higher prices for the consumers at the end of the supply line.
But this is exactly what the activists want. The activist bureaucrats at the EPA, far away in Washington D.C., think that American consumers and small-to-medium size businesses are spoiled and need to wean themselves off prosperity so that the absurd notion of saving the climate can be achieved.
Ted Hadzi-Antich writes:
If implemented, these regulations could wreak havoc on the United States economy, and Pacific Legal Foundation is taking immediate steps to block the regulations.
In the video he tells us:
And these regulations, if they go into effect, could have the potentially devastating impact on interstate commerce as we know it today.”
These proposed EPA regulations are going to really hurt small businessmen like Skip Brown, and threaten to run them out of business for good. The big winners will be the big corporations who have the capital, connections and lobbyists in D.C.
Government is supposed to be helping people like Skip Brown, and not be ruining them. This is not about job creation – it’s about killing jobs and businesses. You can visit and contact the PLF: http://www.pacificlegal.org/
