If California regulators have their way-you won’t be able to buy a black colored car in 2012. Regulators say the black cars absorb too much heat and their air conditioners have to work harder. Is it just me or does this seem like the retardedest shit you have ever heard? Wouldn’t navy blue absorb as much heat as black? Is Obama gonna have to drive in a pink Cadillac instead of a black one? I’m all for the environment, but there has to be a better way to save it than this. Maybe focusing on better public transportation for California, a tax on the suburbs, toll fees, something to make people drive more efficiently?
“The problem stems from a new √¢‚Ç¨≈ìcool paints√¢‚Ç¨¬ù initiative from the California Air Resources Board. CARB wants to mandate the phase-in of heat-reflecting paints on vehicle exteriors beginning with the √¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢12 model year, with all colors meeting a 20% reflectivity requirement by the √¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢16 model year.”
