States Taking the Lead
Forget the Feds. The states are taking up the fight against global warming, taking the fight directly to the automakers.

State Attorney General Bill Lockyer, who filed the suit in September, claims that automakers are violating public nuisance laws by producing high-emission vehicles and should pay damages for polluting. He says automakers could produce cleaner vehicles, but have chosen to fight instead.

Lockyer is right of course. After all, who killed the electric car?
