But First Snide’s remarks: Please don’t attribute the title of this article to Ford, because they go along with the lunatics in Sacramento (or Beijing) and must believe that capitulating to such a bad idea is a “must do”. How can auto company bosses not extrapolate exactly what is going on and tell Nutty California bureaucrats to push it. If the automakers wait a bit, the rational population will rise up and drive out the traitors. Someone has to lead the automaker’s resistance to this madness, Henry Ford would rightly ask where the bravery of his offspring has gone, as Ford now joins the automaker’s other executives in jumping like a lemming off the cliff. Car executives are killing their companies and their stock values (with the exception of Chinese automakers). [email protected]
On Aug. 25, the California Air Resources Board is expected to vote on the Advanced Clean Cars II proposal to rapidly reduce emissions from passenger cars, trucks, and light SUVs beginning in model year 2026 through 2035. According to the news guidelines, by 2035 all new passenger cars, trucks, and SUVs sold in California will be zero-emissions. Ford Chief Sustainability Officer Bob Holycross released the following statement in response to the proposed settlement:
“At Ford, addressing climate change is a strategic priority, and we are proud of our partnership with California for tougher vehicle emissions standards, forged at a time when climate action was under attack. Commit to building a zero-emission transportation future that includes everyone, supported by our own investments of more than $50 billion by 2026 in electric vehicles and batteries The CARB Advanced Clean Cars Rule II is a standard history that will define clean transportation and set an example in the U.S. Bob Holycross, Ford Sustainability Director
