President Obama wants all auto -- fleets to average 54 miles per gallon by 2025.
The Green skeptic Scott Anderson is -- What do you have begun laying down a very lofty miles per gallon target in 2020 but you're environmentalist -- -- -- these mileage deals well you know we've had these cafe standards since 1975 and you know eight I think the auto makers have done pretty well by it.
Mark Royce from from GM North America has said that these standards are tough.
And you know I think -- I've talked to look -- environmental -- should the government be accepting these fuel efficiency standards well I you know I'm a free market guy I don't really like government meddling in the is that technical things but I do think that.
In this case it has provided some innovation and it has and it led to a better standards.
If support comes -- yesterday with numbers and it in it in those numbers they think it's causing them more to make these cars.
And it's hitting a bottom line -- you can argue this is I mean this is extrapolation of that coal miners story that we just heard.

John to Chico up that university of Michigan's energy institute has said that.
Current technologies can actually get.
74 miles per gallon -- who wouldn't want to get 74 miles -- you know what should the government say that we must understand that I'm not gonna go there that's not my that's you know I I would I believe and that's the free market I think that people want.
Better gas mileage on their cars I think the auto makers can deliver if this gives them a little -- well.

-- to conform I think it's really difficult I think that you have to -- -- any of these regulations I think there has to be a process for you know.
Saying -- them and in a way that's not going to harm the smaller company you would agree that environmental rules and laws as written also very that they are indeed onerous on small operate as -- that the lawyers that will interpret any any law that you know anywhere they want and and this -- been done in that case would you favor some kind of timeframe.
Omniscient barnacles emission the time friends I think there should be yes I do I do you agree with the judge I don't think that.
You know -- some of these things you really egregious cases.
With with high you know impact you know it's a problem it really is old you'll -- And -- my phone in America because of the environmental laws that He He can do anything can you.
Now I don't that if I don't agree that entirely but it's and I won't take the -- you know what I'm coming from I know where your coming from a I think basically almost sign on -- -- underside sat.
