Now yer hittin on some topics I can agree on. I don't support Government operated industries from a moral standpoint (transit & passenger rail subsidies) because of the innefficiences that are caused by it and the unfairness/equility problems with it.
I do however support environmental regulations to protect citizenry. The Government's role to provide a defense of the nation and the respective citizenry is unquiestionable and often has lapsed extensively. There is of course a fine line balancing defense with outright intrusion, but this one shouldn't be too fuzzy for even the most anti-Government Grognard type.
Summary: Good to see some regs and standards setup for getting these things cleaned up. The technology is there, its just a matter of building in the price to cover the costs of a cleaner products/air.

The comments are far more interesting than a non-scientific poll of readers.
