U.S. automakers want something from President Trump. No, it’s not lower fuel economy requirements. Environmental Protection Agency czar Scott Pruitt gave that assurance last month. And it’s not a roll-back on emission limits either. That’s in the works as well.
America’s top car makers want Trump to accept that climate change isn’t a “hoax” and that the standards his administration puts into place must take that environmental threat into account.
The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM), the industry trade group that represents auto leaders like GM, Ford and Volkswagen,has sent a letter to President Trump urging him to consider the environmental implications of his changes to EPA rulings.
“Climate change is real,” the automakers told Trump.
