So the future part of it -- this really hangs that the future part is greater in the United States; that, you know, Ford is now deeply committed, and I think GM and Chrysler are coming along, deeply committed -- their future is not to lobby to sell big, heavy inefficient cars. They're realizing now in a world 10 or 20 years from now their future will be in manufacturing light, energy efficient cars, because will have to want to buy those because the price of oil will be higher.What a doozy. One translation might be: "the auto companies are 'coming along' because their balls are in a vice with the WH logo; other industries will follow suit because if they don't we'll put 'em out of business. American families will like their new beer can POSmobiles --and they'll thank me for letting them like 'em! And, hey, how about that Wayne Gretzky".
So this is really a bill that helps give industry a certainty that this is coming along, rather than depending whether you start now or five years from now -- let's start it now.
