President Obama is expected to soon add emission rules for big-rig trucks to a growing list of regulations to combat the threat of climate change.
The president directed the Environmental Protection Agency to develop new rules for heavy-duty trucks to make them more fuel efficient, while lowering their carbon dioxide emissions to lessen the effects of global warming.
Trucking manufacturers will be looking to see if they are able to meet the standards without driving smaller trucking fleets out of business, according to industry representatives.
The rules will not only regulate the truck and the engine, but are also expected to add new efficiency and emission regulations for trailers that large tractor-trailer trucks haul. One official says it will be a “big rule” that comprises so many components of large trucks that it could easily be broken down into several separate regulations.
Glen Kedzie, energy and environmental counsel for the American Truck Associations, said he couldn’t say what the efficiency rating will ultimately be, but contended that the EPA has done unprecedented outreach, “a lot more than I have ever seen on a rule,” to get the rule right.
Nevertheless, the regulations are major in scope and could have major implications for the industry, Kedzie said.
One of the biggest changes in the rule will be the regulation of trailers, which is a part of the truck that has not been regulated by the EPA before and is a step removed from the agency’s primary focus of vehicles with engines.
Battery-powered e-cigarettes were initially revered as a healthier alternative and method of therapy to help the addicted quit smoking, but according to research presented at this year’s American Thoracic Society International Conference, there is little evidence these devices are effective
in helping people quit nicotine for good. Even worse, many young people who were educated about the deadliness of a cigarette habit have started vaping since it’s been deemed a “healthier” option, and the numbers of new users are staggering. According to the CDC, e-cigarette use among middle school students tripled between 2013 and 2014
It’s true: certain levels of toxic chemicals are lower in e-cigarette vapor than tobacco smoke
and one study found them to be less addictive than regular cigarettes
, but powering up an e-cigarette doesn’t come without any risk. In 2009, the FDA found a number of cancer-causing chemicals in e-cigarette solution, including one ingredient used in antifreeze
, and more recently, one 2015 study found that in some cases, when heated at a high-temperature setting, electronic cigarettes can produce significantly higher levels of cancer-causing formaldehyde
than traditional tobacco smoke. Some think that opting for a nicotine-free solution in an e-cigarette cartridge removes any risk to your lungs, but new research has found that both the nicotine and nonnicotine solutions damage the lungs
, affecting the lining on a cellular level. So far, there is evidence that this change in the lining leads to lung injury and inflammation.
The presidents just love those executive orders.
Have you ever taken a look at some of those things?
How about these?
— Federal seizure of all communications media in the US
— Federal seizure of all electric power, fuels, minerals, public and private.
— Federal seizure of all food supplies and resources, public and private and all farms and equipment (including what you are storing for emergencies in your home right now).
— Federal seizure of all means of transportation, including cars, trucks, or vehicles of any kind and total control over all highways, seaports and water ways.
— Federal seizure of American people for work forces under federal supervision, including the splitting up of families if the government so desires (this happened before in Europe during the Nazi regime).
— Federal seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities, both public and private.
— Empowers the Postmaster General to register every single person
in the US.
— Federal seizure of all airports and aircraft.
— Federal seizure of all housing and finances and authority to establish forced relocation. Authority to designate areas to be abandoned as “unsafe,” establish new locations for populations, relocate communities, build new housing with public funds.
— Seizure of all railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities, both public and private.
— Provides FEMA complete authorization to put above orders into effect in times of increased international tension of economic or financial crisis (FEMA will be in control in case of “National Emergency”).
And these are just a few of the many, many Executive Orders that are now sitting there, ready to be used.
