All the environmental rage in Washington has been centered around three words — cap and trade. A new threat expands the word count by one. It’s called low-carbon fuel standard.
It’s only a proposal at this point, but a dangerous one, according to State Rep. David Wolkins. The Winona Lake Republican, long active in environmental issues at the state level, penned a recent column in the South Bend Tribune.
Wolkins writes, in part:
"(An LCFS) is not about making the fuel in your car today better, cleaner or more affordable; but it is designed to make the fuels we rely on today more scarce, more expensive and less available. To that end, it will be successful."
It’s termed another job-killing mandate. Sounds like the last thing we need to be talking about.
