Obama taps consumers for emission, mpg standards

By KEN THOMAS and PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writers Ken Thomas And Philip Elliott, Associated Press Writers – 9 mins ago

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama plans to propose the first-ever national emission limits for cars and trucks as well as average mileage requirements of 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016 — all costing consumers an extra $1,300 per vehicle.

Obama's plan couples for the first time pollution reduction from vehicle tailpipes with increased efficiency on the road. It would save 1.8 billion barrels of oil through 2016 and would be the environmental equivalent to taking 177 million cars off the road, senior administration officials said Monday night.

The plan also would effectively end a feud between automakers and statehouses over emission standards — with the states coming out on top but the automakers getting a single national standard and more time to make the changes.

Carbon is a very good pretext for not to occupy of what threatens to us now. Carbon can cause our loss in 2050, pollution is killing us as of now (water, air, ground, food, animals, sea) Only here are, to occupy of the others of pollution which carbon will not report any money but will cost some, whereas carbon brings back d' enormously; money
