Letter: Clever, Cleaner Cars Needed in Utah

UPEC’s Andrew Schoenberg concludes that “the prediction of the Utah population doubling makes it even more important that most of us reduce our additions to air pollution and global warming gases by switching to fuel efficient vehicles such as EVs and PHEVs.”

In a recent letter to the Salt Lake Tribune, he writes:

The Trump administration wants all states including California to reduce the CAFE standards to a maximum of 37 mpg.”
