The Global View

If we can get a man on the moon, why not 35 mpg?

ad‘Nuff said, really. It’s a great campaign being run in the US by the Pew Campaign for Fuel Efficiency.

Over the last two decades, U.S. dependence on foreign oil has nearly doubled, gas prices have climbed more than 55 percent and our nation’s global warming emissions have skyrocketed, while average gas mileage for new vehicles has actually fallen.

But technologies already exist to dramatically improve fuel economy. By putting them to work, we can strengthen our national security, spend less at the pump, save auto industry jobs and reduce global warming pollution — all while maintaining the safety and power we’ve come to expect from our vehicles.

Go get ’em. (Thanks to the link, EcoGeek).
