ENVIRONMENTAL BLINDNESS

We are coining a term for those who push through environmental regulations without practical consideration to the whole chain of events…Environmental Blindness.

First, we stand by our statement, “We are not opposed to clean air. We want clean air. We live and breathe the same air as everyone else.”

That being said, let us start with Sir Isaac Newton’s centuries old discovery of the Laws of Motion…for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

That law of motion applies to green energy policies as well. When regulators are singularly concerned about what comes out of a vehicle’s tailpipe , they ignore how it came to be. They ignore the damage done to our planet through mining of rare minerals. They ignore the toxicity of batteries and solar panels. They ignore the damage done to bird and insect habitats with windmills. They ignore 60% of the nation’s electricity is generated through coal plants. They ignore our electric grid is woefully unprepared for the charging of personal vehicles much less heavy duty trucks. They ignore so much more, but we only have some much space.

Trucking is pro clean air and has made great strides. The emissions from a truck in 1988, just 35 years ago, equals the emissions of 70 trucks today. Huge savings! Huge gains for the environment and all of us.

All we ask is to have the time to develop and fully test the various technologies currently available as well as develop future technologies which may prove even more beneficial.

The current one-size-fits-all approach of battery-electric is neither feasible nor practical and, frankly, is not good for the environment as a whole. Stop Environmental Blindness. Look at the entire picture and remember…for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
