/ January 11th, 2006, 9:17 am / I also think one major solution is thoneclogy. Lets put it this way: if a company can produce a car that consumes less fuel, consumers will want to buy it up for gas savings. I dunno about you Blacksun, but Im seeing alot of hybrid Toyotas and Hondas on the roads today in Los Angeles. And lets talk about non-automotive air pollution. Lots of the pollution out there is related to manufacturing and processing and power plant style machinery. Those types of things require different solutions than the automotive industry. Manufacturing and power companies also need to invest in thoneclogy to produce more efficient machiens that use less fuel or use more renewable sources like water, wind, and the sun. Geothermal plants are very cool IMO, as well as hydroelectric dams and such. From what I hear, we still hae tons of stinky coal power plants and we should be moving away from that. The Government is only a problem when it comes to making more efficient power plants. Thanks to governemtn regulations, it was almost impossible to make a new power plant in America in the last 30 years and that is the same problem that contributed to Californias energy crisis recently. But if power companies were free to make new plants and get rid of the 40 and 50 year old plants, we would all be in a buch better place.From what Ive been told (Im too young to know firsthand), Los Angeles used to have much browner and stinkier skies back in the 70s. From what Ive been told by older people, the skies in SoCal are like 10 times bluer than what they were 30 years ago. So we must have been doing something good between then and now. We just got to keep the momentum going. Consumers are obviously ready for the next step, as we can see with all the Hybrid Priuses and Civic hybrids on the road.
