The Trump Administration is resolved to help fossil fuel companies maximize profits.  And one way is to make American vehicles less fuel efficient.  With that in mind the feds are about to start a bitter legal battle with California, the world’s fifth largest economy…over fuel efficiency standards.  This matters for the whole planet because of CO2 emissions and climate change.

Remember when the right-wing kept arguing for states’ rights?  That was back when the Neo-Confederacy wanted to stop civil rights and deny labor unions any power.  Now when a state wants to protect the environment, suddenly states’ rights must be squashed.  So the current regime continues its “my way on the highway” efforts to gut alternative energy, environmental protections and any responsible use of resources.  Take the profits and run, is the rule in DC these days.
