    California to reduce carbon emissions by…banning black cars?

So, what’s the crux of the
problem… can’t paint suppliers just come up with new, less
heat-absorbent dark paints? According to Ward’s, suppliers
have reportedly been testing their pigments and processes to see if
it’s possible to meet CARB’s proposed mandate of 20% solar reflectivity
by 2016 with a phase-in period starting in 2012, and things aren’t
looking good. Apparently, when the proper pigments and chemicals are
added to black paint, the resulting color is currently being referred
to as "mud-puddle brown." That doesn’t sound very attractive, now does
it? Windshields, backlights and sunroofs are also slated to get
reflective coatings starting in 2012.

Hi Brandon,


Thanks for the post. You  may be interested to know that there is also a move here in the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia to regulate the pressure in our automobile tires. It is a consequence of some campaign rhetoric that the beaurocrats in Kalifornia are planning to implement. 

 Next on the list has to be Passing Gas- Much too much CO2. I wonder how much a permit will cost and will it be part of CAP and TRADE?


So little time and so much regulating to do.
