Obama Talks Fuel Efficiency With EPA

Photo uploaded by staticbob on Flickr

President Obama would like stricter emission standards in California for trucks and cars. Trucks leaving the Port of Long Beach, the second largest port in the nation, spew toxic fumes in the air every day. Consequently, this has caused a rise in respiratory problems for residents in the area.

The issue has become quite serious and receives very little press. A friend lost his mother a few years back from lung cancer. She lived in an ocean front condo about a mile or two from the port. Never smoked a cigarette in her life.

This president continues to do exactly what I was dreaming he would do once he took office. I hope to hear something about his plan for health insurance next.

It's a strange world when a Democratic president does in six days what Republican governor could not convince a Republican president to do in four years of letter-writing, lawsuits and international embarrassment.
