Tailpipe Testing Issue Surreal
New air pollution numbers just came out. If Bexar County had high-priced annual vehicle inspections with tailpipe emissions tests, they would do almost nothing to clean up our air.
One citizen who looked at the new AACOG numbers is Mark Langford. He wrote in an email:
Now here's where the tailpipe testing issue gets surreal. An Express-News story begins with these two sentences:
It's Alice in Wonderland stuff, folks. The numbers show tailpipe testing would be ineffective and the Bexar County environmental services director then says emissions testing should be part of the Clean Air Plan. It is absolutely surreal.
