To meet the Obama administration’s targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, some researchers say, Americans may have to experience a sobering reality: gas at $7 a gallon.

To reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the transportation sector 14 percent from 2005 levels by 2020, the cost of driving must simply increase, according to a forthcoming report by researchers at Harvard’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.

The 14 percent target was set in the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget for fiscal 2010.

In their study, the researchers devised several combinations of steps that United States policymakers might take in trying to address the heat-trapping emissions by the nation’s transportation sector, which consume 70 percent of the oil used in the United States.

Researchers said that vehicle miles traveled will increase by more than 30 percent between 2010 and 2030 unless policymakers increase fuel taxes.


Taxes. Taxes. Taxes.



Not any of your taxes...

Why are they using projected miles driven in 2030 to prepare for a 2020 deadline?

Because I wonder about evolution: evolutionists say giraffes have long necks because they eat leaves from the tops of trees.
I say they eat leaves from the tops of trees because they have long necks.
And their poo gives off greenhouse gas emissions.

My vote goes for the extinction of giraffes.
