testing up in smoke
Late this afternoon, the AACOG Air Technical Advisory announced
that because the "design value" for 2007 will be less
than 85ppb, without control strategies, they are not recommending
that vehicle emissions testing be included in the Early Action
In the short term, this is a major win for all of us who have
tried to convince our elected leaders that emissions testing is
economically immoral and environmentally useless.
long term, unless we can get something in writing from the EPA,
according to the wording in the Early
Compact, it appears that we can still be labeled as a "non
attainment" city if we violate the fourth highest 8 hour
ozone average between now and 2007...
to thank all COGS members, KTSA and everyone who attended meetings
and wrote their elected officials over the past year. Without
your help, we would have ended up like Austin. Even though Austin
is in attainment, their elected leaders have decided that they
will have emissions testing anyway!
for Good Science
personal thanks and congratulations to Mark Langford and Forrest Mims,
the two citizens who led the educational campaign based on real science,
as opposed to the junky stuff that had been passing for Clean Air
Plan research. This battle is apparently won. The war will continue.

A good headline

prospect that area motorists will have to cough up more money to add
pollution-sensing tailpipe tests to their annual vehicle inspections
seemed to vanish in the air like exhaust smoke Monday.

Tonight's Alamo documentary challenges myths
Tonight, in a two-hour documentary called Remember the Alamo, the
History Channel re-examines the fateful battle of 1836 and reveals
a deeper understanding of what took place. Through re-enactments,
