Even with the proposal as low as 4 percent per year
This sad but predictable. The UAW has consistently been one of the most anti-environmental unions in the country. What excuse they can come up with now that climate change is an established fact and U.S. automakers are getting creamed by Toyota is beyond me. It is simply myopic thinking in the extreme. And Bush’s proposal is only for a 4 percent increase in fuel efficiency per year! This is one of those issues that don’t break down neatly across the political spectrum.
