The end of the "Cool Cars" Regulation

The California Air Resources Board has announced the end to the "Cool Car" regulations.  You may member this particular silliness, as the regulations that proposed to, among other things, ban black cars and add material to glass that would interfere with on-board electronics. CARB was ridiculed into dropping the ban on black cars, and later media coverage of the reflective glass concept forced them to abandon that as well. On March 25, the official announcement was released. They are not done though--these people believe that if they do not make regulations, they won't get paid. They don't stop--and they do not like to be challenged. Now they will focus on something they call performance based rules.  We don't know what that means yet but perhaps a ban on automobile air conditioning is what they have in mind.

Statement from ARB Executive Officer James N. Goldstene on Cool Cars Regulation:  SACRAMENTO - Following the June 2009 Board adoption of the cool cars regulation, stakeholders raised several new issues involving performance of electronic devices as they may affect public safety.  After listening to this input and accounting for the legal deadline to finalize the rule, today we are announcing that the AB32 “cool cars” rulemaking will cease.  Instead, the Board will pursue a performance-based approach as part of its vehicle climate change program to reduce CO2 from air conditioning and provide cooler car interiors for California motorists  The Air Resources Board is a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency.  ARB’s mission is to promote and protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering effects on the economy.  The ARB oversees all air pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain health based air quality standards.
