The transfer of Air Resources Board Chairwoman Jananne Sharpless (Nov. 18) may be prompted by the oil and auto interests. However, the real enemy against clean air is us, the consumers. We are not willing to pay for electric cars. We are not satisfied with the technology that is available, and we are not willing to let electric vehicles cramp our lifestyle. In short, we are not ready and willing to jump on the electric vehicle bandwagon. Legislators and regulators must now reconcile with this issue, either bowing to market pressure and adjusting the goal for mandatory electric vehicles, or bully-pulpiting the public to change their willingness to pay.

The California Air Resources Board has voted to expand testing of diesel trucks and buses, requiring owners of two or more vehicles to survey their fleets annually. The expanded regulation, which was approved Thursday night, is an effort to cut particulate soot emissions 10% each year by targeting the dirtiest vehicles that produce most of the pollution. The new program will affect up to 120,000 trucks and buses each year.
