car bailout greenwashing... simple web action to take

Frankly, I'd be delighted to see the US auto industry go under, so they can stop blocking state emission action.

But Congress and Obama are set on bailing it out... so the least they can do is require electric car transitions and not raid the electric car funds in the DOE to pay for the cash flow bailout.  But of course, that is exactly the greenwashing being proposed.  They will vote in the next 1-2 days.  I have little faith they'll make the right decision, but if they do, it could be a miraculous turning point in retooling transportation infrastructure in this country. This links to a great and simple petition/letter writing action. 


have fun.
