I don't want to get into politics on this board as to what to blame and what not to blame Congress for, but I would like to say that Congress is comprised mostly of lawyers, not engineers/scientists/physicists, so it is very interesting on how some of the politicians know or claim to know so much about emission reduction. If I am at all critical at any aspect of Congress' actions, I guess I'm the idiot. Didn't this same Congress recommend gasohol and other rediculous types of fuel that wound up worse than burning the original product?
Having said that, one thing I wish is that other nations had stricter auto and business pollution laws. Has anyone been to Asia, Mexico, Central America, etc?
Anyway, If there are components to lower diesel engine emmitants, I don't see why we have to discontinue diesel engines?
