the problem in this country, I think, is we have been stuck in this notion that
technology by itself can solve our problems and we haven't had government
regulations, which is the one thing we know is how you make cars more
fuel-efficient. I mean, the thing to remember is in the 1970s to early 1980s,
we doubled the fuel economy of cars and then starting in the mid-80s, we
stopped. Technology kept improving, but instead of going towards fuel economy,
it went towards weight and acceleration. So we have been spinning our wheels,
literally and figuratively. I think the opportunity is now- is to take strong
action to reduce oil imports and greenhouse gas emissions without sacrificing
comfort or performance.
