Daniel F. Becker and James Gerstenzang | Trump Gave Automakers What They Wanted. Biden Shouldn’t. – The New York Times

Daniel F. Becker and 

Mr. Becker is the director of the Safe Climate Transport Campaign at the Center for Biological Diversity. Mr. Gerstenzang is the campaign’s editorial director.

“As President Biden finalizes his road map to steer America toward a cleaner car fleet and safe climate, he should ignore the auto industry’s push for weak fuel efficiency and emissions rules and strengthen the tough standards imposed by the Obama administration that were shredded by Donald Trump.

Mr. Biden’s first step should be to direct the Environmental Protection Agency to reimpose emissions reductions as quickly as possible for new cars and S.U.V.s and other light trucks to 5 percent a year as called for under the Obama rules.”
